    I will be setting up a database for an organization here at my University. I
    wanted to use magnetic or bar code id cards to, not only help enter data
    initially, but to use them to keep attendance in an Access Database on a
    weekly bases. If there are better, fairly economical, alternatives please
    tell.
    Thank you.

    -Beginner in Access, the simpler the better please.

    I can't discuss magnetic coded ID cards, but my user group used a small
    hand-scanner attached to a PC to scan the bar code on membership cards for
    checkin.
    Initially, the success rate was low, but as they learned about it and were
    careful in the preparation of bar codes, success improved. Even so, the
    (backup) ability to check in by searching for name or typing in membership
    number was necessary, because it never was able to read every card
    presented.
