I've finally figured out how to create a barcode in Excel, but my POS won't read it. I've adjusted the size and It still isn't reading. I don't know if I'm doing something wrong, but I attempted to work w/ tech support and was told that "Here there is no issue with the application, it is the issue with the formula related issue which is out of our support boundary." I'm wondering if it is the type of font that I chose to use for the barcode? Is that a possibility? The only formula that I've seen to use is ="*"&A2&"*". If someone could assist me I would greatly appreciate it.

DisplayBarcode is used to insert a standard bar code into a document. It supports 10 different types of barcode. Depending on the one you choose, the barcode type accepts alphanumeric data of different formats and lengths. As a field code, you can right-click and choose Toggle field codes to go between the code and the barcode image. See the example for several types of barcodes. For the specification, see 188.8.131.52.7 DISPLAYBARCODE.

I am having a similar issue but in Word 365. Our goal is to use DISPLAYBARCODE within a Mail Merge template to train nurses how to use a scanner to practice administering meds from a sheet of 10 qr/barcodes. The scanner reads the patient’s medical record number (6 digit QR) but not the medication (9 alpha/numeric/special QR nor CODE39).
Thanks for any insight into this.

It appears that you are encountering issues with using the DISPLAYBARCODE field in a Word 365 Mail Merge template to generate barcodes that can be read by a scanner, specifically for medication information in QR or CODE39 formats. If the scanner successfully reads barcodes from other sources but not those generated using Word's DISPLAYBARCODE field, it may be related to how Word is rendering the barcodes.
Here are some steps and considerations to troubleshoot this issue:
Remember that barcode generation and scanning can be sensitive to various factors, and compatibility issues can occur. It is essential to ensure that both the barcode generation in Word and the scanner settings align correctly for the best results.
