    Hey Guys,

    I am looking for an app that would import from an Excel (or Numbers) file a column of fields containing text into a bunch (batch mode) of JPG (any image format really). The ideal solution would grab each field of text convert it to a 2D barcode (Data Matrix) JPG file starting with the first row as say 1.JPG. The column could have 10 or 100s of fields of text (making 10s or 100s of JPG files).

    Only thing I found with Google seems to be web based tools but that will not work as the data is in Excel and I really dont want to type in 100s of text fields in one by one :)

    Is there anything out there that would do this?

    Thanks,

    Now, it is very convenient to generate Data Matrix barcodes. You can generate Data Matrix in many platforms, such as Java, .NET, etc. If you want to generate Data Matrix in .NET, you can use a .NET Data Matrix barcode generator SDK. You can put this in Google, and you can find much useful information like this.
