    I am scanning barcodes as a means of registering volunteers in and out from a
    project - I have a barcode scanner which attaches to a serial port - how do I
    set this up in access.

    Look at
    http://www.granite.ab.ca/access/serialport.htm
    you will need an Active X control or some third party software.

    I would suggest buying a barcode reader that you can use with a keyboard
    wedge. It will make life a little easier in my opinion.
