How to use barcode scanner from ms access.



I have find a solution for you. You may helped by it.


Install the driver of your scanner onto your computer 1st.some computer  may automatically install the drivers.


Plug your USB barcode scanner into your USB port and give some time to system for recognize it. Reboot your computer if necessary .


 Then program your USB scanner ,the process depends on the scanner model, but you will most likely have to scan a series of barcodes on the printed device manual in a certain order to get the scanner working properly for your other items. The scanner acts as sort of a keyboard input device, reading the information from the bracode and  typing it into a blank field on your program , such as MS access.


Lode the program and scan your any item  with the device ,place the red light directly over the middle of the barcode  and wait . Product name, UPC  number, price manufacturer data will be displayed.
