I did this on a job a few years back, when I had to make a report in access to print out stock labels using bar codes. As far as I know, access has no native support for bar codes, etc.. What I ended up doing was just outputting the number to a field that used a bar code font. The font was supplied to me, so I'm not sure if they're universal or if you have to use one that comes with whatever system you'll be scanning them with, etc.

I too have used a similar method in producing bar codes. Unfortunately the font was not supplied to me so I had to find one that works. There are several versions of bar code formats so you may have to search for one that works. However, I would first look in the install directory for the reader software and see if there is one present there. Sometimes they will have it for use with generation. Otherwise you'll need find the one that works. Most systems will use an ISO standard barcode so this could be a good starting point for you search.

Hope this helps.

Tony Toews' site is a must see if you're working with barcodes! He gives advice on using them within apps (Access and others) as well as a number of links to free barcode fonts! Also a link to another excellent article by a gentleman named Joel Spolsky.
