 Guest We have a lending library of app. 2000 items which is currently set up in MS Access for cataloging and lending. We currently type in the information. We would like to add a bar code scanner to streamline these tasks. Can you recommend the items we would need to integrate a bar code scanner with our current Access program?

Since you are using a standard Windows based system in an Access database most any scanner will work for you. With a unit like the Honeywell 1200g the scanner connects through a USB cable and will transmit all scanned data as a keyboard. You would not have to change anything about your process as all you would have to do is put the cursor where you normally type into and when you scan a code it will populate that field as if you typed it in.
