Barcode formulas in Excel

I'm trying to create a Spreadsheet template that will have daily Inventory Receipts dumped into it.
I want to list the Item number and have a formula in the next column to display the barcode of that item.  I've tried a few ways but none are working.  Does anyone know the exact syntax for a formula and which font would be best to use for a numeric field?
