How To Make Code 128 Barcodes A, B & C in Excel

by Nate Schubert

Microsoft Excel is one of the most common programs used to create barcodes with fonts, mainly because Excel is such a versatile application that can increase efficiency in virtually any industry. Because of this, many barcode software companies have created various components to generate barcodes in Excel, and the most preferred IDAutomation Products are indicated in the Excel Barcode Integration Guide.

Our most popular tool to create barcodes from fonts in icrosoft Excel is the Barcode Add-In for Microsoft Excel. This is an excellent tool which makes barcode generation in Excel very easy. This tool can be used to generate a range of linear barcodes like Code 39, Code 128 Auto, UPC, Intelligent Mail, and more powerful 2D barcodes like Data Matrix, QR Code, PDF417 in addition to others.

One drawback of the Barcode Add-In, however, is that it is not capable of generating Code 128 subsets A, B or C. While the customers who require these particular subsets are certainly not in the majority, we want to be sure that all IDAutomation customers have equal access to guidance in terms of barcode generation. For this reason, we have created three video tutorials to demonstrate how to generate Code 128 A, Code 128 B and Code 128 C barcodes using another of our tools, IDAutomation Barcode Macros and VBA Functions, in conjunction with Excel 2010.

Below you can find each of the three video tutorials in alphabetical order, of course! Please let us know via the comments under this article if you have any specific comments or questions, as we are happy to assist!
