Formatting database fields

Our product provides the bar code functions you need to print bar codes, but you must format your data, as you require, before it is printed as bar codes.

Here is some helpful advice about how to format different field types, before you use the result as the argument to a bar code function.

TIP: Before you use bar code functions, you should first test if your fields have been formatted correctly, by printing the formatted fields as text; before you print them as bar codes.
