Unanswered: Integrating barcode scanning with Microsoft Access
Bear with me on this explanation. We are a company that makes silk screened heat transfers for the imprinted apparel market. We sell transfers as is to retailers and wholesalers, plus we also sell blank, wholesale pre-printed, and pre print retail garments, as well as various gift items. We are currently utilizing an inventory management system and are converting this over to the Microsoft Retail Management System.
We also want to be able to track other things, utilizing a Microsoft Access database and barcode scanner. For example, we want a way for an invoice to be checked off at a certain manufacturing process., etc. A CSR could barcode the invoice with her own personal barcode after the order's credit card has been cleared and it flags the invoices record field as T (or a similar letter or code), and then tags her name as the person who scanned it with her barcode scanner.
There are more ways I could list, but suffice it to say, we're wanting to streamline things (pulling transfers, t-shirts printed, inventory overall, tracking numbers of shirts with tags sewn, transfers printed, etc) and get our system more automated than by pencil and paper records. Any help you can be will be greatly appreciated. If you need for me to list any other particulars to this project, please let me know.
the aim is store once, not store multiple times
