  • Fixed if you enter the value directly into the formula. The bar code will always be the same, unless you edit the value.
  • Variable if you enter a reference to another cell into the formula. The bar code is automatically updated to the value of the referenced cell.

  • Width: sets the width of the bar code symbol in points. If missing, width of the Position parameter cell (or range) is assumed.
  • Height: sets the height of the bar code symbol in points. If missing, height of the Position parameter cell (or range) is assumed.
