Envelope Bar Codes in MS Word 2007

Dennis Faas's picture

A reader recently wrote to inquire: "Does Word 2007 provide a destination barcode for printing envelopes? If not, is it available from elsewhere?"

My reply:

You cannot simply check the barcode box in the Envelope dialog any longer, but you can still manually insert the { BARCODE } field on your envelope.

Having said that, please know that the option has been removed from Word 2007 because the POSTNET codes produced by the BARCODE field were no longer compliant with USPS regulations.



There are other software add-ins out there both free and paid versions that are compatible with MS Word 2007 that will do the trick for you. As an example, there is one available Tec-It online.
