  2. Point to the document you want, click the arrow that appears, and then click Edit in Microsoft Office Program Name, where Program Name is the name of the program in which the document can be edited, for example, Edit in Microsoft Office Word.

  3. Place your cursor in the location in the document where you want to insert the barcode.

  4. On the Insert tab, in the Barcode group, click Barcode.

    Note: The Barcode command appears on the Insert tab only if a Barcode policy is in effect for a server document.

  5. Click the Microsoft Office Button Office button image , and then click Save to save your changes.
