Construct and print barcodes quickly with this ActiveX control. IDAutomation Barcode ActiveX IE Plugin can be easily invoked through Microsoft Word, Access, Visual Basic, and other applications. The program also includes a simple single barcode image generator.

This program's strength lies in creating barcodes inside other applications. The manual details the few installation steps needed for each of eight major applications. Programmers should have no trouble adding the control to their apps. The manual also provides helpful examples for other methods to use this app.

That doesn't mean less-experienced users can't find a use for this tool. System administrators at libraries and small businesses will find that this program can generate barcodes in 17 major symbol sets. The included Metafile Image Generator quickly constructs a barcode to a small set of user specifications. The barcode image is then easily dropped into a Word or similar document. Unfortunately, the generator doesn't include default settings.

This app creates accurate, and easily scanned, barcodes. The lack of default settings won't bother the occasional Metafile Image Generator user. Every business and library clerk who uses barcodes will find this program helpful.
