      Scanning Barcodes to Populate Text Fields to Create DVD Database

      Post

           I have a rather extensive DVD/Blue Ray collection, and now that I can scan bar codes directly with FM 13, I would like to create a data base where I scan the bar code on the movie covers and the movie information (title, actors, genre, year, director, rating, etc) is populated into their respective fields.

           I've gotten as far as getting the actual bar code number into a field on my Mac using my iPhone, but I am stuck after that.  I have no idea how to to get the information that I want from the barcode or how to populate the fields with it once I get it.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

           Thanks,

           Rob
