How to filter for items with missing barcodes?

When we were first setting up our shop, we missed putting barcodes for a lot of items an especially variants. I was able to sort for products with missing barcodes entirely by using " -barcode:* " in the product search, but it doesn't bring up items that have a barcode on one variant but not the rest. I need to find a way to bring up all products that are missing a barcode on any variant, and I was wondering if there was a search filter or app to help me out with that. Thank you for the help.

From my experience, GMC is better to check the missing product information.

Our company has more then 10,000 product barcode and sku. We can't filtering them in Shopify.

So I would like to recommend to use the GMC to check the product information.

Even if you put the wrong barcode, they let you know which product's barcode is wrong.

I'm sorry, I have no idea what GMC is. Could you direct me to whatever that is?

Hi. So its Google Merchant Center. 
And they provide free product listing in Google Shopping as well. There is many benefits for online stores such as Google Organic Search, Google Ads. So I recommend to use both for your business. You can check the ranking of the products and product information and price as well. There is no charge if you don’t run Ads. So Good luck!
