OleDbConnection aConnection = new OleDbConnection(
"Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:/Demo/BarcodeDemoData.mdb");
OleDbDataAdapter dataAdapter = new OleDbDataAdapter("select * from Customer"

Linear Barcode = new Linear ();
Barcode. LinearBarcode = Linear Barcode. Ean8;
foreach (DataRow dr in ds.Tables[0].Rows)
Barcode.BarcodeData = (int)dr["CustomerId"] + "";
byte[] imageData = Barcode.drawBarcodeAsBytes();
dr["Barcode"] = imageData;
CrystalReport1 rpt = new CrystalReport1();
this.crystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = rpt;
