postnet.mdb is a set of Access
functions that can be used to generate Postnet barcodes. The functions
take a ZIP or ZIP+9 and remove extraneous characters (such as the '-'
that may be in a ZIP+9, e.g., 12345-6789). A checksum is computed and
added to the string, and the framing bar characters are added to the
beginning and the end. Two of the functions can also add the delivery
point code. The delivery point code is computed from the street address,
and will allow the Postal Service's equipment to sort the letter directly
into carrier walk sequence for most addresses. The resulting string
can be printed using a Postnet font. For more information visit the Kevin
