The EAN-8 code is the same as the EAN-13 code, the difference is that the EAN-13 code is the standard code, while the EAN-8 code is the shortened code. If the outer packaging area of the product is less than 120 square centimeters, it can apply for the EAN-8 commodity bar code to the national article coding center. The EAN-8 commodity bar code supports a total of 8 digits, of which the last digit belongs to the verification code, which is automatically generated by the barcode software, so you only need to enter 7 digits when making the EAN-8 commodity bar code. Below we introduce the batch generation of the EAN-8 commodity bar code through the database.

Open the barcode software and create a label. The size of the label should be consistent with the size of the label paper in the printer. Click "Set data source" above the software, the data source type is selected according to the type of database in the interface that pops up. We use Excel file, so select Excel data table file here, and click "Select File" to import the file with the EAN-8 barcode data into the software.

 

Click the [Barcode] button on the left side of the software, draw a barcode on the label, select the barcode type as "EAN-8" in the pop-up editing interface, and then insert the data source field.

 

After the bar code is created, you can set the font and size of the bar code text on the right side of the software.

 

Click Print Preview, select the paper and set the label layout. By clicking on the next page to view the bar code generation situation, no problem can start to print.

 

To sum up, it is the method of batch generation of EAN-8 bar code through the database. The generated bar code can also be exported into PDF files or pictures, which is very convenient.
