Technically ACT! could print the bar codes, they are simply a font. There are several problem. ACT! would have to have the correct ZIP + 4 data available Then a calculation would need to be made to convert the ZIP numbers into the bar code numbers which include check numbers to make sure the bar code is read correctly and that information stored in a separate field  for addition to the label.
