Barcode macros do not run, files do not open or #NAME error is displayed


When using Barcode Macros and VBA for Microsoft Office or ActiveX Barcode Controls in a barcode field with Office XP, 2000 & 2003, one of the following may occur:

Usually this is due to the Microsoft Office security level being set at HIGH, thus preventing any macros from running or ActiveX Controls from being used. This can be resolved by performing the following:

  1. In the application,  choose Tools – Macro – Security and set the security level to medium.
    Tools – Macro – Security
  2. Save and close the document.
  3. Reopen the document and choose “enable macros” when prompted.

To avoid these errors in a solution that is distributed, IDAutomation suggests signing the files and macros in the solution.
