Printing bar codes in your application

This section assumes you have already used the Database Utility to create an ASCII text file, which contains records with a generated bar code field added. See section Generating bar code fields for details about using the Database Utility.

Once you have created the ASCII text file using the Database Utility, you can use the file in many other applications. Bar codes will be printed when you print the bar code field (in the ASCII text file) using the appropriate bar code font.

Each type of bar code is printed using a specific font. See section Bar code font name and font size to use for full details of which font to select in your application.

TrueType bar code fonts are installed on your system as part of the installation process. See section Installing TrueType bar code fonts in Windows for full details.
