3.1.3.2.8 MERGEBARCODE

NOTE: This section is not applicable to Word 2010.

Syntax:

MERGEBARCODE field-argument-1 field-argument-2 [ switches ]

field-argument-1:

field-argument

field-argument-2:

field-argument

Description:

This field is analogous to the field code, MERGEFIELD. The main difference is that MERGEBARCODE generates a DISPLAYBARCODE field based on the merge result instead of showing it directly. The syntax of field instruction and supported switches is also different.

The use of field-argument-1 is the same as the data field in the MERGEFIELD field.

field-argument-2 is a text string containing the type of barcode (barcode-type) that will be generated. The valid values (case-insenstive) are: UPCA|UPCE|JAN13|JAN8|EAN13|EAN8|CASE|ITF14|NW7|CODE39|CODE128|JPPOST|QR

The meanings of these values are described in the following table:

Switches: Zero or more of the following field-specific-switches.

Field Switch

Description

\h field-argument

The text in this switch's field-argument is an integer that specifies the height of the symbol. The units are in TWIPS (1/1440 inch).

\s field-argument

The text in this switch's field-argument is an integer that specifies a scaling factor for the symbol. The value is in whole percentage points and the valid values are [10, 1000]

\q field-argument

The text in this switch's field-argument is an integer that specifies the error correction level of QR Code. Valid values are [0, 3]

\p field-argument

The text in this switch's field-argument specifies the style of a POS barcode (barcode types UPCA|UPCE|EAN13|EAN8). The valid values are [STD|SUP2|SUP5|CASE].

\x

Fixes the check digit if it’s invalid.

\d

Adds Start/Stop characters for barcode types NW7 and CODE39

\c field-argument

The text in this switch's field-argument specifies the style of a Case Code for barcode type ITF14. The valid values are [STD|EXT|ADD]

\r field-argument

The text in this switch's field-argument is an integer that specifies the rotation of the barcode symbol. Valid values are [0, 3]

\f field-argument

The text in this switch's field-argument is an integer that specifies the foreground color of the barcode symbol. Valid values are in the range [0, 0xFFFFFF]

\b field-argument

The text in this switch's field-argument is an integer that specifies the background color of the barcode symbol. Valid values are in the range [0, 0xFFFFFF]

\t

Display barcode data (text) along with image

\a

Concatenate all mapped address fields to generate a Japanese Postal Customer Barcode. The field-argument and Barcode-Type arguments and all other switches are ignored when this switch is used.

[Example: The following field uses the data in BarcodeData to generate an EAN-13 barcode with default style:

MERGEBARCODE BarcodeData EAN13

end example]

[Example: The following field uses the data in URL to generate a QR Code with highest error correction level:

MERGEBARCODE URL QR \q 4

end example]

[Example: The following field concatenates all mapped address fields and uses that data to generate a Japanese Postal Customer Barcode:

MERGEBARCODE PLACEHOLDER JPPOST \a

end example]
