Encoding Functions With 2D Barcode Fonts in Excel

by Nate Schubert

Last week we wrote about one of our newest video tutorials which demonstrates how to encode functions with Code 128 barcode fonts in Microsoft Excel. This week, we're happy to announce the release of another of our newest video tutorials which demonstrats how to encode functions with 2D barcode fonts in Microsoft Excel.

This video tutorial explains how to encode a function such as a Tab in a 2D barcode like Data Matrix, Aztec, QR Code using the appropriate 2D Barcode Font package in conjunction with the IDAutomation Excel Barcode Add-in, in Microsoft Excel. Encoding functions such as a tab in a 2D barcode can greatly increase the level of efficiency by making multi-field output possible. This is especially important when working with 2D barcodes which can encode upwards of 800 characters of information.

Please take some time to view the video below to learn how to encode functions in your 2D barcode using Microsoft Excel, and let us know via the comments beneath this article if you have any specific comments or questions, as we are happy to assist.
