How To Generate Barcodes from Fonts in FileMaker Pro

by Nate Schubert

FileMaker Pro is a popular type of database software that can manage many different types of information related to inventory, invoicing, document control and much more. Barcode technology can also be integrated into FileMaker Pro databases which can add to benefits by decreasing human error and increasing speed and efficiency. Searching for the simple term "barcode" on FileMaker.com will refer users to the IDAutomation Native Barcode Generator for FileMaker, but users can also integrate barcode fonts into a database with the help of one of our free FileMaker font encoder tools.

There are a variety of different barcode symbologies that can be used within FileMaker, and the latest video tutorial from our technical support staff touches on using the free font encoder for FileMaker in conjunction with purchased or demo IDAutomation Code 128 Fonts to create accurate barcodes in FileMaker Pro. If you are using a barcode font other than Code 128, you can simply substitute your font in place of Code 128 in this video tutorial. Please let me know if you have any questions or comments, as we are always looking for new and improved ways to help!
