Mail Merge QR Code

I was recently tasked with finding if it was possible to merge Bar codes or print QR Codes during the Mail merge process in Microsoft office. After searching the internet I eventually found the solution. The ability to Merge QR codes during a Mail merge has been added in Microsoft office 2013. By adding the following code to your Template document you can turn any merge field into a QR code.

Example of Merging a QR code

This functionality also supports other bar code types.
