Scanning Barcodes to Lookup Products
In this video, we'll discuss the types of barcode scanners, the different types of barcodes, 1D and 2D barcode symbologies, using your cell phone as a barcode reader, creating a product table with a barcode field, creating a form to scan a barcode and look up a product.
Coleman from Honolulu, Hawaii (a Platinum Member) asks: I would love to be able to use a barcode scanner with my Access database. At first, it would be nice to be able to just scan a product and have the details appear on the screen while I'm talking to a customer, but eventually I'd like to be able to tie it in to my order entry system. I know nothing about scanners. Can you help?
Members will learn how to scan a product and have it automatically added to an invoice. We'll also check to see if the product is already on the order, and if so, increment the value by one instead of adding lots of line items. We will also learn how to scan a product and perform a Google search on it to display details. Great for books or any product with a UPC barcode.
