Display QR Codes in your Microsoft Access Forms

In this video, I will show you how to use the Google Charts API and the WebBrowser Control to display QR Codes (2D barcodes) in your Microsoft Access Forms. QR Codes are great for detailed product info, employee name badges, whole web page URLs, or any time you want to display an image for someone to scan with their phone to get detailed information.

Anna from Madison, Wisconsin (a Platinum Member) inquires: I watched your previous videos on scanning and printing barcodes. They've been very helpful for my business. Thanks! I would love to be able to print employee ID badges with QR codes on them containing their Employee ID number, first and last names, and some other information. Is this possible with Microsoft Access?


  • As of April 2024, Google's QR code API is no longer working. Use this one instead.
  • In May 2023, Microsoft released the Edge Browser Control which doesn't have the limitation of the old browser control where it cannot display multiple items in continuous forms or reports. I demonstrate how to use this new control to generate QR Codes in my Edge Browser Part 2 video. The technique I show below in the extended cut, however, is still good if you want to be able to download the QR codes (or any image files, for that matter) to store them in your local database folder.


Members will learn how to download the QR code from the web and save it as a local file on their hard drive, in a folder under their current database folder. Then, you will see how to display that file as an image in a report so we can print employee name badges.

Silver Members and up get access to view Extended Cut videos, when available. Gold Members can download the files from class plus get access to the Code Vault. If you're not a member, Join Today!
