MS Access & Barcode Reader

  Dustin Cook 16:49 27 May 2008

Hello all.

I have a problem with a barcode reader, and apparently this can be done - I just don't know how to set it up.

I am doing a stock take.

I have an access database set up with details of products (barcode, name, supplier, RRP, no, in box, etc).

Now, what I want to do, is scan a barcode, which will then bring up all the details for that item, and then add an extra field of quantity.

How can I do this? I'm just using a standard USB barcode scanner, and Windows XP with Microsoft 2000.

Many thanks in advance.
