A very interesting solution for Code 39 barcode
Jim at a client found the following a very interesting solution for 3 of 9 bar code which was done as VBA code by James Mercantile. Barcode Generator for Code 3 of 9, Code 39, and Mil-spec Logmars. The VBA code reads the size of the control and creates white and dark lines accordingly. The advantage is that unlike with some free fonts you can have the control as tall as desired so it's much easier for the folks on the floor to hit the bar code especially from a distance.
While searching for the original source of the above VBA Code and it's author I also came across Code 39 barcode encoding and Code 39 Barcode FAQ and Tutorial. More techie stuff for the technical explanation of how the 3 of 9 bar code works.
The Using bar codes within a Microsoft Access application has been updated.
To James Mercantile thanks. A very interesting solution.
