    Barcode scanner and Filemaker

    marcx

      Hi, need some help

       

      So I can use FIlemaker Go to scan barcodes on ipad, using the" insert from device" into a global field and then carry out scripts using the data in the global field to achieve what I need on a record by record basis.

       

      I am looking to now move on to start using a wireless barcode scanner because it's faster.

      Not sure how I can do this.

      Using the layout script triggers wouldn't work because the scanner is wireless and I am not linked to the computer/layout.

       

      Also if we can capture barcodes in a scanner as batches, how do we then batch process in filemaker thereafter.

       

      Any help would be welcome
