How to Generate Barcodes and QR Codes in Google Spreadsheet

Barcodes and QR Codes

Barcodes and QR codes are now widely used in various products around us such as in supermarkets, bookstores, libraries, etc. With today's tutorial, you'll easily be able to "create barcodes for your inventory" management. And not only barcodes but also QR codes as well.

While a barcode does only holds data in the horizontal direction, a QR code on the other hand can hold information in both horizontal and vertical directions. Due to this, a QR code holds hundreds of times more information than a barcode.

A conventional barcode can also take up to ten times more print space than a QR code containing the same amount of information. A QR code can be read 360 degrees, in any direction, eliminating interference and negative effects from backgrounds.

But enough of this general information, let's dig into "how you can create your own barcodes and QR codes in a Google spreadsheet". To do this, just follow the steps below steps.
