making art collection archive - barcoded
My case is the following:
I have created an archive of a art collection in Bento 3. Due to it`s limits, I decided to switch to Filemaker pro.
I would Like to create a barcode for each work. And I would like to have filemaker be able to search on barcode.
I don`t have a barcode-scanner (yet) but I found The Cocoa barcoding app that works with any firewire webcam. So I was planning to use my isight as reader.
So my questions are:
- is this possible with filemaker
- Is it necessary to buy a barcode scanner? Anyone experiences with the cocoa app?
- are there any good online tutorials for creating and reading barcodes in filemaker
- would it be possible to do this with Bento? (just checking ;-) )
