System Requirements

The original template,, was written in WordBasic and will work with either Microsoft Word 6 or Word '95.  If you load the template into Word '97, Word 2000, Word XP, or Word 2003, it will translate correctly and operate without error. The original template does not have the bar code options or the numbering order option

The new version, BatesXP.doc, is designed only for Word 2000, Word XP, and Word 2003. The bar code font is embedded in the document, so there is no need to purchase a separate bar code font.
