TBarCode SDK - Bar Codes in Office Applications

With the barcode software component TBarCode SDK you simply create all barcodes with Microsoft® Office. The integration in office applications like Microsoft Excel®, Word and Access is done with a few mouse clicks. If required, advanced bar-coding macros can be implemented with VBA programming.

For users of Microsoft Word and Excel 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016 and 365 we recommend the barcode add-in TBarCode Office!
Barcode Software for Office, Barcode ActiveX

Barcode Software for Office

TBarCode SDK includes a Barcode ActiveX Control that can be used easily in Microsoft Office applications:

Embedding the Barcode ActiveX Control into Microsoft Office programs requires no programming knowledge. Inserting a barcode into your document is done with a few mouse clicks. On demand VBA programming is possible without restrictions.

Barcodes generated by TBarCode SDK can be printed with all printers. The bar codes are generated via software in the highest possible output quality. No special printer extensions or barcode fonts are required!
