How to Create Barcode in Excel?

How to Creat Barcode in Excel Manually

  Creating barcodes in Excel can be accomplished using various methods, including using barcode fonts, Excel add-ins, or online barcode generators. Here's a simple guide on how to create barcodes in Excel using a few different approaches:
Creating barcodes in Excel can be done with the help of barcode fonts or third-party barcode add-ins. 
Here’s how you can do it using both methods:
 Method 1: Using Barcode Fonts
Download Barcode Font:
First, you need to download and install a barcode font. There are many free and paid options available online. Popular barcode fonts include Code 128, Code 39, and UPC.
Install the Font:
After downloading the font, install it on your computer by double-clicking the downloaded file and then clicking "Install".
Open Excel:
Launch Microsoft Excel on your computer.
Enter Data:
Enter the data that you want to convert into a barcode into a cell.
Select the Cell:
Select the cell containing the data.
Change Font:
Change the font of the selected cell to the barcode font you installed. You can do this by clicking on the font dropdown menu in the Excel ribbon and selecting the barcode font.
View Barcode:
Once you change the font, the data in the cell will be displayed as a barcode.
Below are the steps to do this:
1. Select all cells with values in column B
  2. Click on the Font menu in the Home tab
3. Choose Code39
Apply the code 39 font
After this, you get all the values in column B formatted as barcodes. You can also increase the font size in order to make them more visible.
Click on the font size menu in the Home tab
Choose (for example) 26
As a result, you get a barcode for each text in column A
n our example, the barcode in column B is dynamic, which means that if the value in column A changes, the barcode would automatically update. In case you don’t want this, you can convert the formula in column B to values.
Method 2: Using Third-Party Barcode Add-Ins
Install Barcode Add-In:
Install a barcode add-in for Excel. There are many third-party add-ins available that allow you to generate barcodes directly within Excel. Some popular options include TBarCode Office and Barcode Add-In for Excel.
Open Excel:
Open Excel on your computer.
Activate Add-In:
Activate the barcode add-in by following the instructions provided with the add-in.
Insert Barcode:
After activating the add-in, you should see a new toolbar or ribbon in Excel with options for generating barcodes. Use these options to insert barcodes into your Excel sheet.
Enter Data:
Enter the data that you want to convert into a barcode into the designated cells.
Generate Barcode:
Use the add-in's tools to generate barcodes based on the entered data.
These are the general steps you can follow to create barcodes in Excel using either barcode fonts or third-party barcode add-ins. The exact steps may vary slightly depending on the specific barcode font or add-in you are using. Make sure to follow any additional instructions provided with the font or add-in you choose.
Adjust Barcode Size (if necessary):
Depending on the barcode font you're using and your preferences, you may need to adjust the size of the cell to ensure the barcode is displayed correctly. You can adjust the row height and column width to accommodate the barcode.
Optional: You can also add additional formatting to make the barcode more readable, such as adjusting cell borders or background colors.
Print or Export:
Once you're satisfied with the appearance of your barcode, you can print your Excel sheet or export it to another format.
Remember, this method creates a visual representation of a barcode using a font, but it doesn't encode the data in a machine-readable format like a barcode scanner would. If you need to create machine-readable barcodes for scanning purposes, you may need to use specialized barcode generation software or online tools.
