Linear + 2D Native Barcode Generator:

Microsoft Access Native Barcode Generators:

The Native Barcode Generator for Microsoft Access has been updated to include new graphic drawing routines, improved compatibility for low resolution printers, USPS OneCode support and orientation parameters. This new product also eliminates the issue of horizontal lines that could sometimes appear in the barcode symbols.

The Native Generator is an object that may be easily inserted into an Access Report to create barcode images. Once installed, no other components or fonts need to be installed to create barcodes; it is the complete barcode generator that stays in the report, even when it is distributed or accessed from a server.

The Linear version includes the supported linear symbologies of Code 39, Code 128, UCC/EAN-128, MSI, Interleaved 2 of 5, PostNet, USPS OneCode and the 2D version includes the linear barcodes plus PDF417 and Data Matrix symbologies

More information about the IDAutomation Native Barcode Generator for Microsoft Access, including a download for evaluation, is provided at: http://idautomation.com/access/native/.

If the product was purchased and you would like to obtain the update, please refer to the Priority Support and Upgrade Subscription Renewal section of this newsletter.

IDAutomation Plug 'n Play USB Barcode Wand:

We have just lowered the price of our popular IDAutomation Plug 'n Play USB Barcode Wand to just $99. The W3USB barcode wand is a cost effective solution for low reading volume applications. The internal decoder and interface eliminates the cost and clutter of a separate decoder box. The advanced optics scan barcodes as small as 4 mil with a scan velocity of 2-20 inches per second. Its shape gives the W3USB better comfort and handling compared to other pen based readers. Pull the trigger button and sweep the tip of the wand across the bar code in either direction and listen for the beep that lets you know the data has been successfully captured.

The W3USB wand connects via a USB port, perfect for laptops and PDA devices. It contains its own built-in decoder so information scanned appears as if it had been typed from the keyboard.

This scanner can be shipped internationally for an additional cost.
