Embed a barcode control into a PowerPoint 2003 document


This instructions show you how to embed the ActiveBarcode control into your document. You can automate the control using a macro. If you just want to add a static picture of a barcode, please use the ActiveBarcode Generator instead and transfer the picture of the barcode with copy/paste into your document.

First launch PowerPoint and create a new presentation or open an already existing presentation. Now go to the menu "Insert" and select "Object..." from that item list:

Barcode, PowerPoint 2003


A dialog box appears on the screen:

Barcode, PowerPoint 2003


Select "ActiveBarcode" now and click "Ok". Now a barcode will be created inside your document. This will be a standard barcode of EAN-128 type. This is the default type. You can change this to any barcode type supported by ActiveBarcode: QR Code, GS1/EAN-128, Data Matrix, GTIN/EAN-13, Code 39, GS1-Data Matrix, Code 128, PDF417, DUN-14, EAN-8, EAN-14, EAN-18, ISBN, ITF-14, NVE, PZN8, SCC-14, SSCC-18, ...

Now you can modify this barcode. You can change the type, text, colors etc. For this click inside the barcode with the right mouse button. A pop up menu will open:

Select "ActiveBarcode-Object" and then "Properties...". The property dialog of ActiveBarcode will open. Here you can modify the barcode as you like.
