    Unanswered: Please help for Barcode Scanner with Access 2007


    I want to add the function in my existing Access 2007, but I don't know how to do it.

    I want to read the barcode from the bill, instead of entering the number of the code into the Access.

    Attached here is the sample of the electric bill.

    1. Barcode number 1, will be read into "ElectricUserID" field.
    2. Barcode number 2, will be read into "ElectricCharge" field.

    I also attach the Access file.

    I really hope there will be someone can help me.

    Thank you very much in advance and very much appreciate for your help.

    Best regards,

    There are several devices on the market that connect to a keyboard or USB input and that can read various kind of barcodes ( EAN 8, EAN 13, 2Of5, 39, 128, etc.).
    Have a nice day!

    I don't know this brand nor this model but many codebar readers can send the transcription of what they read to any control that can receive characters from the keyboard (textbox control, wordpad, etc.).

    See (for instance): Cabled Scanners
    Have a nice day!

    you may need to set the focus to a text control before scanning
    check what the scanner transmits. some require setting up to send a lf/cr to indicate a scan is complete
    read the documentation for the scanner
    if that faisl contact the application support for the scanner
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton
