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.

Most barcode scran just plug into the keybord plug and the Scaner will read the bar code and type that number in on the screen where the cursors is
The Scanner I used had a scanning sheet I just had to scan the Bar code type I want to read then I had it add the TAB key Press and the End of Each Scan So it would Jump to the Next feild
