Default Can I print barcodes to my Brother HL-5270DN from word

While you may be able to use your printer's bar code function, it should not
be necessary if you install a Code39 barcode font eg
http://www.bizfonts.com/free/#Downlo...e_Barcode_Font

Thereafter the task is a simple label mail merge -
http://www.gmayor.com/mail_merge_lab...th_word_xp.htm or
http://www.gmayor.com/merge_labels_with_word_2007.htm

You would insert the following on the label, where Code is the name of the
field in your data source that contains the code you wish to barcode. The
barcode requires a stop and start digit, which in Word would be an
exclamation mark thus:

{ IF { Mergefield Code } "" "!{ MERGEFIELD Code \*Charformat }!" }

To confirm that this works, merge to a new document and you should see
!yourcode!. If that works lose that document and return to the merge
document.

Apply the barcode font to the part - !{ MERGEFIELD Code \*Charformat }!
You will now not be able to read the text. Propagate the labels to apply the
change to the rest of the labels.
Now complete the merge. You should get a bar code on each label.
