Codabar was developed in 1972 and is used in libraries, blood banks, and some air parcel services. It is easy to use, does not use a checksum, and lets you code numbers, four letters letters, and some punctuation.
This bar code set includes TrueType and PostScript Codabar fonts in both a standard, (just bar codes), and a human readable, (bar codes with text or numbers below), variations. Each of these scalable TrueType bar code fonts comes in six different aspect ratios, so you can vary the height and width of the bars independent of each other. This lets you print bar codes with the same height, but different horizontal print densities.
Want to print bar codes in Access, Excel, or Word? We include Visual Basic macro functions that let you do that, too. You also get our Codabar utility program. It will build a bar code for you and copy it to the clip board, ready to paste into any Windows application. The utility can also print sheets of labels- just select your favorite label size and print any number of labels. This utility can also export your bar code as a gif, jpg, bmp, or png file.
Codabar features numeric encoding with 4 alpha characters (A-D), variable length bar codes, and no checksum is needed. The online manual comes in Rich text format- compatible with any word processor. Just print a copy of the manual to see how to use these TrueType fonts to print bar codes.
