Embed a barcode control into a PowerPoint 2016, 2013 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 document or open an already existing document.

Make sure that you have configured your Powerpoint, that the "Developer" tab is shown in the ribbon. If not, go to the Powerpoint Options:

Select "Customize Ribbon" and activate the option "Developer". Then close the option window.

A dialog box appears on the screen:

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.
