whenever i create a barcode i always use active reports. im sure crystal reports could do it was well but im not fond of crystal reports. other than that i dont know how to make a barcode. sorry

thanks...please can you give a sample with the use of active reports?

active reports has a barcode object that i simple set the value to whatever i want embeded in the barcode...

sorry not much code behind it

can you plz show me or send some code about barcoding.here at <<Snipped>>

i think someone gave you some software alternatives in a different thread that you started?

www.datadynamics.com is active reports, this is what i use instead of crystal reports. comes with barcode object

.. not much else i can do
