Add "barcode" as a format to Autonumber?

I need a way to generate asset tracking tags for the barcode input. Autonumber doesn’t allow any formatting so I can not create a valid 8 digit barcode.

Does anyone have any creative solutions?

You could use a formula in conjunction with the Autonumber field to produce an 8 digit number:

10000000 + {Autonumber Field}

That should return an 8 digit number starting with 10000001 for the first field and incrementing up from there.
