Issues related to using font products in Microsoft Office programs, such as Word, Excel, and Access etc.). Also for questions on using barcode fonts in VB6.

bar code rotation

Postby dang(Legacy Member) on Thu Jun 01, 2006 1:34 pm

I am using the demo version for MS Access. The bar code shows up fine, but I need to rotate it. I cannot set the rotation in the properties window, as no rotation values are shown in the drop down. I tried setting it in code, but that didnt work either.

Thanks for any help.

If you are using a barcode font, right click on the text box and select Properties to pop up the Properties sheet. Click on the Other tab. Change the "Vertical" property from No to Yes. Adjust the text box to hold the barcode.

If you are using Barcode ActiveX, change the Rotation property of the barcode control.

I must be blind, because I don't see a Vertical property in the list. Can you please confirm that property exists?

Thanks.

Which control did you used to place the barcode? The vertical property shows at the other tab of the text box properties.

I inserted the ActiveX control directly. My properties list is quite different. Here it is:

OK. You are using the Barcode ActiveX control. Find the "Rotation" property and change it to mbxRTAntiClockwise_90 or mbxRTAntiClockwise_270.

That worked from code, thank you. What product did you think I had? Can I use 2D databatrix bar codes in MS-Access without the ActiveX control?

Thanks again

I thought you are using barcode font to create a linear barcode in Access.

We have a font-based product for creating Datamatrix barcode - http://www.morovia.com/font/datamatrix.asp.

I've tried bar code rotation with the "Vertical" property on a standard Text Box without success. The UPC_E function from the Morovia VBA library won't convert the encoded string to barcode when it is rotated. Has anyone else encountered this or know of a workaround (not involving ActiveX controls)

I tried on Access 2007 and had no problem at all. I attached the file that I worked. The report is "All Assets".

First make sure that text box works horizontally. Make sure that control source is =EAN8(field), and field is indeed in the data source of the report. Security warning is disabled.

Note that I used EAN8 function. UPC_E should also work.

If you still have problems, attach your file to the reply, or you can attach it to my PM if you do not want others to see your file.
