Vertical Barcode Fonts


O

OD

We use barcode fonts in Access to put scannable employee
ID numbers computer printed badges. Under Access 2000, we
had a normal line across the bottom of the badge and a
vertical line along the side and the program worked fine.

We upgraded to Office XP, and now the vertical barcode
will not display. When we change Vertical to "NO" the
barcode displays fine. But when we change Vertical
to "YES" it only displays the number not the barcode.
Obviously some kind of bug in Access 2002, but does anyone
know how to get around it? Or do we have to go back to
Access 2000 to make it work again?

Thanks

Arvin,

I wish it was that simple. I have to print the barcodes
in two separate orientations. One across the bottom, and
one along the side, and both have to be readable by our
barcode ID card readers (which are drag through)... It
works fine in Access 2000, but not in Access 2002... What
changed?

Thanks,

O'D

The only other thing that I can think of is to try to use the Access 2000
format. That format is the default in all later versions.

It may also be a print driver issue. I've had printer problems with Brother
printers when upgrading. See if you can get an older print driver. If all
else fails, try making the text box that you are printing in wider (or
narrower) to see if that may help.

I appreciate the ideas, although they aren't fixing the
problem. Like I said, it seems to be a bug in Access
2002. The file is already in Access 2000 format, since
that's where we wrote it. One note is that we only
upgraded our version of Office, not our version of
Windows. We are still using Windows 2000, so our printer
driver (HP LJ 4050) hasn't changed. For now we'll just
stick with Office 2000 for the systems we use to generate
the ID cards. Thanks again...
