I am a new user to Adobe Acrobat and have learned how to create fields, but now I am looking to create barcodes in Acrobat.  Where would I begin to learn that?  Also, I did try to create a barcode with an existing form, and when I tried editing all the possible form fields showed up, and it was at that point that I attempted to enter a barcode, but a window came up to say I needed to purchase another license to be able to do this

Please advise!!!
