Has anybody worked with an application where you convert a 7-8 digit number to a barcode? If so, could you please provide some links? thanks

depends how you're going to use it.  isn't a barcode just a font essentially?

http://www.barcodesinc.com/free-barcode-font/

going the font route means that clients would have to have that font installed (if the bar codes are going to be displayed on the client).

i suppose if you're in CF8, you can use the font to create the barcode on the server, then create an image of it to deliver to the client?

hey CJ,

nope, still using CF7. It's ok though since this will be inserted into emails. I hope the printing company is using Code39 format. All i had to do was install the font and then do a style definition to display the barcode.
Thanks a lot...

sorry, new here. And I can only offer you some free barcode generators for Windows both free or licensed ones.

And is it true that without barcode font, one can not see barcode in his PC?
