I'm creating a label that requires a barcode for every item on the label. The objects on this label are being read in from some embedded data. Is it possible to have multiple barcodes similar to a textbox that is of type Paragraph?

 

For example I have a Paragraph that contains 10 lines for item #s. Can I have a something similar for barcodes that are held in by a single object? Or do I have to manually use some independent amount of barcodes?

I guess you could use a 2d barcode like a data matrix, PDF-417 or QR code, and then use multiple data sources in the barcode separated by a separator value like a semi-colon.

Is this possible with UPC-A? I was reading the white papers and was going to explore the use of VB scripting.

UPC-A is a specific barcode symbology used in the US for barcoding retail products.  If this is not the use you have, then you shouldn't use it.

Yes, the client I'm working with is in the US and would like to be able to scan individual items in with UPC-A. But these labels can have anywhere from 1-10 items on them with their respective UPC barcodes so I'm looking possible routes to implement this.

A UPC-A barcode is for a single item and contains the product code for that item.  Are you sure you're not wanting to produce a GS1-128 barcode for a logistics label, so that a goods in/out department can easily scan barcodes to books goos in/out of their warehouse?

This old PDF on Getting Barcoding right might well be helpful to you.
