Look in the "articles" forum at this site.
Towards the bottom (old articles) I have #42 and #24.
is a way to use MS Excel and TrueType fonts to make 41 BarCode. It's kind of cumbersome, and it even takes me a while to figure it out every time I go back to it, but it works.
Leo Duran has done a far better job of implementing these ideas than I can. Read about his program at
I think that his BarCode output is for a PostScript Printer, and since I generally don't have PostScript Printers I haven't really tried it. If it's anything like the rest of his program, making barcode with it will be easy, quick, and bug-free.
Tony Duell has written what appear to be very excellent utility tools for 41 programs, "but" they are for Linux. I don't run Linux :-( so I have not had the opportunity to try his programs. Tony's extensive list of utilities includes methods to produce 41 bar code.
Good Luck. If you try my MS-Excel-based implementation and have trouble figuring it out, feel free to send me an email and I can possibly explain how it works.
