Can Excel create barcodes? Yes, and it’s as easy as downloading the correct fonts. You don’t have to purchase any of those barcode software programs that you can find online unless you need a more unusual kind of code, such as an ISBN or a postal code. Free fonts are available for most of the common barcodes, and fee-based fonts are available for the others (at reasonable prices).
There are also many sites that generate barcodes for you, which cost nothing (although some do ask for donations). My favorites include: Online Barcode Generator, which offers (believe it or not) 102 different barcode types, Free Barcode Generator (with 99 different types), and Barcode Generator.org (with 67 different types). Bet you didn’t know there were so many different barcodes.
