Guest Hi, I am using the database Dataease to keep track of sales and inventory levels. I do this with UPC codes, and since I manage everything manually, it has become hard due to the inventory volume. I want to know if Dataease can integrate the use of bar code readers and scanners. I am using the old version of Dataease 4.53.

All bar code scanners output their scanned data as a basic text string via a USB port. As the scanner is sending data as an emulated keyboard you can send the text information to any text field in any application. A unit like the Motorola LS2208 is pretty much plug-and-play and as long as you have an available text field in your application selected you can scan into it.
