I currently own a WASP bar code scanner. I am trying to create a library database for a check-out ,check-in system. Very simple. We want the user to just get a book scan it, and scan their employee ID card and record that information. When returning it, we want them to scan the book and their ID and it to check the book in. Since all library software is so complex I was going to create on myself in Access. But don't know how to incorporate the bar scanner information to talk with the Access database. Anyone know how? D.
