    Default MS Word Bar Codes

    Hello,

    Could you please point to why my MS Word 2016 cannot view (and save) bar codes. Upon opening (or saving) a document that already has a bar code my MS Word converts the bar codes to text.

    Do you know how to fix this behavior?

    Regards,
    Rajesh

    Default Re: MS Word Bar Codes

    If you're seeing something like:
    {DisplayBarcode “490123456789” EAN13 \t}
    all that means is that you have the field code display toggles on. Pressing Alt-F9 toggles the field code display on/off.
    Cheers
