UPC A font from Chaos Microsystems Question

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had any experience using this font? It can be downloaded for free from here

http://www.storm.ca/~dan/

In the read me, he has instructions on how to create the machine scannable barcode using the font, but I haven't been able to wrap my head around that one. I was wondering if anyone here has been able to incorporate it into Filemaker using a formula to create the barcode with this font?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks

Frankly I think this barcode is an absolute bummer, and I'd only use it if I absolutely positively had to. Which is a question I think you ought to ask yourself. Why not use 3 of 9 instead? I use it for a number of solutions, and it works great, no plugins, nothing.

My company uses UPC A barcodes for our products, but for what I am trying to do, 3 of 9 might work.

is there a a free 3 of 9 font that you can recommend?

thanks

This is a good resource page:

I know I got the 3of9 font which I use from this page, but can't tell you which one it was. All I can say is that if it installs, prints and is readable, it should be fine.

Funny enough, that is where I had originally got the UPC A barcode font at.

I will check it out. I would still prefer to be able to use UPCA, but this might work in a pinch.
