Product Overview

This Native Barcode Generator is intended for Google Docs Spreadsheet users that wish to easily integrate barcode capability into their spreadsheets without any external dependencies. This product is implemented as a single script module with complete source code, which allows the developer greater flexibility with implementation and design. Once imported in a spreadsheet, no other components or fonts need to be installed to create barcodes; it is the complete barcode generator that stays embedded in the spreadsheet.

Barcode Integration Tutorial

If problems are encountered with this tutorial, IDAutomation recommends referring to the sample included in the package. The demo version of this product will only produce a static barcode which can not be changed.

  1. Extract the files from the Native Barcode Google Docs Generator package.
  2. Open the IDAutomation Google Docs Script.js file.
  3. Select all and copy the script code in the file to the clipboard.
  4. Open the spreadsheet.
  5. Choose Tools - Scripts - Script editor and paste the script code into the script editor.
  6. In the cell to create the barcode, type the equal sign followed by the barcode function and parameters.
    For example:
    Set the barcode function in the formula bar
  7. Choose Format - Font - Courier New and reduce the point size as much as possible. The smaller the point size, the smaller the barcode will be.
  8. Press enter and a barcode should appear.
  9. To create barcodes in additional columns, move the mouse to the bottom right of the cell and the arrow should turn into a plus sign (+); left click and drag down to the end of the column.
  10. Once the left button is released the functions should calculate and multiple barcodes will appear.
    Create multiple barcodes
