Adding Barcodes to Forms

Remark Office OMR can read the following types of barcodes: 

  • Code 3 of 9 (Code 39): Alphanumeric
  • Interleaved 2 of 5: Numeric
  • Codabar: Numeric
  • PDF 417: 2D, Alphanumeric
  • Data Matrix: 2D, Alphanumeric
  • Code 11: Numeric
  • Code 128: Alphanumeric
  • Code 93: Alphanumeric
  • EAN 13: Numeric
  • EAN 8: Numeric
  • UPCA: Numeric
  • UPCE: Numeric

One of the easiest ways to place a barcode on your form is to use a barcode font in the software application you use to design your forms. A barcode font is the same as any other Windows font. Gravic provides you with a public domain (free) barcode font (Code 3 of 9) available for download from our website. The font is also automatically installed when you install either the Remark Office OMR demo or full version.  

A barcode font is the same as any other Windows font. Once downloaded, install the barcode font just as you would any other Windows font. Once the font is installed, you are ready to create a barcode. To create a barcode, just type the information you want to use, then highlight and change the text's font to a barcode font.

Note: When using the Code 3 of 9 barcode font you will need to begin and end the barcode with asterisks (*). These asterisks become bars in the barcode and are necessary for proper recognition of the barcode. In addition, do not use spaces in the barcode. If you need to represent a space, use the exclamation point (!) character.

You can use barcode fonts in any Windows package that supports changing font types, including: word processors, survey design packages, databases, etc. 
You can also purchase software to produce barcode labels or stickers that can be affixed to forms any time prior to scanning.
