I am wondering if you could help me out. I have an excel sheet with around 20 columns with various bits of data, Name, Colour, Barcode etc.
Everything works perfectly and I have set-up everything I need to apart from the barcode, what is the best way to convert the barcode numbers from Excel automatically into a working barcode within InDesign (if this is even possible)
The barcodes I am working with are EAN13, I don't mind purchasing software to do this but the ones I have tested don't quite work how I would like them.
So it is clear the EAN13 Barcodes in Excel are listed as numbers 1234567890000 like this and I would like them to be automatically converted into a working barcode within in InDesign, so then I can export to PDF for print.
Thanks in advance.
I'm certain this has been discussed here previously and a forum (or google) search should bring up the previous thread(s).
Thanks for your reply, I did find some answers but they were relating to different barcode types, I tried to replicate this but it did not work quite the same for EAN13. I have tried some software and the EAN13 font but doesn't work correctly. I could be missing something really simple mind you
https://www.google.com/search?q=Barcode+%22data+merge%22+EAN-13+InDesign&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8 brought up a few links external to the forum that look promising, and Indesign and Barcodes which includes a link to a script that might solve the problem.
