    Creating barcodes with data merge

    Ben Janssen

      Hi

       

      I am encountering the following problem.

       

      I have a list of barcodenumbers (only the numbercode) in Excell (OpenOffice) and want to import them into Indesign with datamerge.

      After that I figured I would use a Code128 font to transfer the numbers into Code128 stripes , but the result is not OK.

      The Code128 font gives not the correct stripes for the numbers, however it does it right for the letters (within the barcodenr. there are also 3 letters)

       

      I found some discussions regarding this but not really an answer.

       

      Does anyone have a solution for this problem?

      Do I need to adjust something in the excell file?

      Or is it just not possible?
