Make UPC, EAN and ISBN-13 barcodes

in Microsoft Word

Use UPCTools within Microsoft Word to create UPC, EAN and ISBN-13 barcodes in your Word labels, templates and other documents. Using our sample code is a two-part process: you pass a string into our a function and then format the returned string in one of our UPC barcode fonts. The function adds the necessary start and stop characters and calculates the UPC, EAN or ISBN-13 check digit for you.

from Excel into Word

If you have lots of different barcodes to make, or need many of the same barcode in the same Word doc, the simplest method is start with your data in an Excel spreadsheet. Use UPCTools within Excel to create all of your barcodes at once, then do a 'mail merge' into your Word label or document template. More info about UPC in Excel can be found here.

Visual Basic Code
