Want to add bar codes to FileMaker Pro? We created this bar-code tutorial to help FileMaker users integrate bar code automation into existing FileMaker applications, reports, forms and databases. Once setup, the barcode may be viewed and printed from a PC or Macintosh as long as the barcode font is installed on each system.
"We just purchased the product.. I am using your fonts with FileMaker and doing a software inventory for the Government. It works great and I have found it very easy to set up.. Thanks again" - David Sinclair, APV4 Contractor (FPI)
Method 1 - using Self Checking Fonts, MICR and OCR fonts
Self Checking Barcode Fonts, MICR and OCR fonts are compatible with FileMaker and may be used with ease. To use a self checking font such as Code 39 (AKA code 3 of 9), you need to insert a "*" before and after the data encoded. Therefore, if you encode TEST3OF9 in a barcode, you would need to display the text *TEST3OF9* in a field with the Code 39 font selected.
In this example, we add a dynamic Code 39 barcode field to a FileMaker ID name badge database. The barcode is created when this field is included on a form or report and the proper barcode font is selected for it. You may also download the method 1 example.
Method 2 - Combining multiple fields in a single barcode
With Code 39, you can also easily add tabs between two fields in a
single barcode (in extended39) for example enter:
"*"& DataField1 & "$I" & DataField2 & "*"
in the specify calculation field (see method 1 step 4 above).
