Hi all,


I am developing an Asset tracking and management database and would like to include barcodes in my database. I want my client to be able to search for assets by just scanning a barcode.

I know several people have worked with barcodes in filemaker databases that is why I am turning to you for help. Is there a way I can attach a barcode to an assets' unique number without using third party plugins?. Will this barcode be scanned by any scanner or do I have to buy a specific barcode scanner? If I have to use a plugin, which one would you reccommend?.


Thank you.
