I just installed Kutool program to make QR code from Excel. I will test this program and if it works then I will purchaSE IT.
I didn't have "Microsoft Barcode Control 16.0" so I down loaded per instruction. And open Excel with Admin mode. Then try to "Register Custom" . But I opened Barcode control folder and select MSBCODE964,OCX. Then there is error message came out. It said "The selected file does not contain self-registrating ActiveX control". What it means? What is the problem. And how can I install that?
Please let me know how to solve the problem.

- To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 7 months agoDoes anyone know how to print the generated QR codes once they are created? After creating said code you aren't able to select them unless you switch to "designer mode" and even then you are only able to get into properties or format object. There is a checkbox for a "print object" under the format object selection but haven't been able to actually print the code itself. Any help would be appreciated.

Is it possible to link a QR Code to the value of a cell in an online Excel spreadsheet ? Meaning that if one would edit the value of the cell, the QR Code would give the edited value of the cell ?
