To do this, there are several things that need to be completed first:

  • A database needs to be created
  • A field in the database must be dedicated to the barcode number
  • A barcode box needs to be created on the label.
  • The barcode box needs to be formatted to the correct barcode type.

To tie the information from the database to the barcode field, please perform the following steps:

  1. Click once in the barcode box. You should see the cursor flashing in the barcode box.
  2. Go to the Database menu.
  3. Select the Insert Field option. This will open the Insert Field window.
  4. Under the Field Names list on the left-hand side, select the barcode field.
  5. Click on the Insert button.
  6. Click on the Close button.

At this point, you will see the number showing in the barcode box. If you click away from the box, the barcode should appear.
