RE: Can MSAccess interpret barcodes

Integrating barcodes in Access applications demands:

1.) a barcode font for output (reports)
2.) a scanner for input

Generally, Barcodes are numbers or strings and can be stored as such in a table field.

Practical approach:

Position the cursor in the form control where you want to store the barcode information.
Scan the barcode
The number or string will appear in the form control.
