I am trying to figure out the best way to print labels from a database (spreadsheet) that will include a scanable code 128a barcode on it. I searched and found acrticles from 2011 so I am just going to see if there is anything better out there. I am using CS5 on a Mac and need to import 2 lines from a database, the barcode and the desciption. Not sure it it would be best to just put the images in the spreadsheet then import then in datamerge or if there was a plugin for InDesign to create the scannable barcodes. I know for bulkmailing I just used a font to make the barcode I needed, is there anything like that for other barcodes?
Also I have not done datamerge with images, is the process the same?
