Hi Edwin, I guess that you have used a 3rd party library designed to create barcode. I have liked Clipper on DOS programming because of its ability to interact with 3rd party libraries like Grumpfish, Funcky and others. And arguably I can say Clipper is the strongest, easiest and fastest xbase DOS programming language I have ever used.

But eventually we moved up to VFP right? And here in VFP, the easiest way to approach your problem is to use a barcode font like Free 3 of 9 font. That font will do the conversion and like what Koen says, your printer or any other printers will print it.
