How to Make Custom Barcodes With MS Excel
A barcode is a code placed on consumer goods or products. It can be used for sales purposes, for inventory, or as part of an information-management policy in your company. A barcode is made up of vertical bars and a series of numbers. It identifies your product or document as a unique item. The option to insert a barcode into an MS Excel spreadsheet is only available if you have Excel 2007.
