You could use the column named ID on your barcode.

If the barcode text is held in the list column, you may want to consider generating a URL in another column that points to a site like https://www.barcodesinc.com/generator/index.php and concatenate your text to it.


Something like this:

https://www.barcodesinc.com/generator/image.php?code=Your Text&style=197&type=C128B&width=167&height...

This allows you to build the URL with a  query string from your column and all that is needed is to click the link.

Hope this helps!

This is pretty straightforward, but requires a bit of setup beforehand.

First, you need to determine if the website can provide you with a proper barcode that you can use.

I have use https://www.barcodesinc.com/generator/index.php  before, but confirm that your specific format is there. If not, you could swap out this for another site.

Once you have confirmed that the site can generate something for you, create a one manually and save the link (you'll need it later!). Make sure you put in something that you can easily identify what you entered (use XXXXXX or INSERTHERE see my example below).

Setup the list in SharePoint.

Create a list and you'll need 3 columns:

1. Barcode - single line text

2. Barcode Link - Hyperlink

3. Barcode Image - Picture

Workflow:

Create a workflow and have it start on NEW.

You will want to drag in an Update Item action (that is all you need!) and update Barcode Image and Barcode Picture.

Click on the Insert Reference and then Item Properties. Paste in the saved link. Replace your placeholder text with the item property {Barcode}:

Do this for both the Link and Image columns.

See it in action!

Create a new item in your list and let the workflow do it's magic!

Hope this helps!

Yo - this was a great post. You've helped me: Present Rhia. Past Rhia had no clue what this would be all about, but Present Rhia now knows that it is required in a project and Future Rhia is thankful for how well this is written out.
