Perfect Fit 7 has the ability to print barcodes on various forms.
(This function is not available in Perfect Fit 5).
You will need:
– UPC module
– Form Editor module
– UPC Tools file (aka Azalea Bar Code Fonts)
– UPC ID (optional)
A UPC ID is purchased from http://www.uc-council.org.
A company needs a unique UPC identifier which is purchased from the UC Council.
You can print bar codes from any text data, so if you wanted to print bar codes from your Stock#, that can be done and you do not need the UPC ID.
When you have installed the above files you can print barcodes on an invoice through the FormEditor via the following steps:
1) Run the UPC Tools file. It will install UPC Fonts on your computer, which are needed to print barcodes.
2) Install the UPCTall font in Perfect Fit via Menus > Maintenance > Prog > Library Configuration > Report Fonts.
In the right column highlight a font you rarely use (we recommend choosing a font between #5 and #9). In the left column, find and double click the UPCTall font. Answer Yes when asked to assign the new font.
NOTE: You can also install the UPCHalf font, which will print barcodes at half the normal height. This is useful when you want to save space on the form or label.
3) Insert your UPC ID in the required field via Menus > Maintenance > Maintenance > Company Information.
4) Assign UPC codes to your inventory items via Menus > Inventory > Other Data > UPC .

The first field should have a dataname of: INVENT_UPC.IUPC_CODE

Select the second field and choose the Text tab. Set the font size to 48, or larger, and font name to UPCTall.
