I got this spreadsheet set-up to when I write the number on a cell (H3) it will change it to a barcode in another cell (D1), but when I input the numbers it only shows the number instead of the bardcode, and when I click in the cell where the barcode is suppose to be (D1) it shows 3 of 9 barcode as font.

Please help.

Thanks

Welcome to the board!

At a guess, I would say that the sheet was created on a different computer that had the 3 of 9 font installed. Now you're trying to view it on a computer that doesn't have the font installed so it is reverting to the default system font.

You might have a similar, but not identical font installed, in which case you would need to apply the correct font to the relevant cells.

3 of 9 could also be called code39 or something similar.
