PrecisionID EAN UPC Barcode Font Contents
The PrecisionID UPC Font Software enables the generation of UPC and EAN Barcodes. The software contains 5 sizes of Windows TrueType (TTF), Binary PostScript (PFB), and ASCII PostScript (PFA) fonts. The package includes a User’s Guide with specifications correlating specific fonts and point sizes with X dimensions and printed height. The User’s Guide also includes several tutorials, explaining in step-by-step fashion, application of PrecisionID’s UPC and EAN Barcode in Microsoft Word (Mail Merge), Excel, Access, and Crystal Reports.
UPC barcodes are somewhat complex to construct and require check digit calculations. To make this process very simple, the software includes PrecisionID Font Formatting Components™. These modules automatically compress and format the data for use with the barcode font. PrecisionID Font Formatting Components™ include a Microsoft VBA module for Microsoft Office applications and a UFL for Crystal Reports. For other applications or languages, the source code of these modules may be used as a guide for conversion.
