    incorporating scanning into a database


      I would like to create an entry into my database that allows a person to scan an already defined barcode then have that entry move onto and record a date and time? Can anyone assist?

          You can incorporate my barcode custom functions so that you read the barcode, then have a field trigger do the timestamp. Other barcode solutions should work similarly. You can see my barcode custom functions by searching for the tag "ron smith md" also. No barcode fonts required.


          We use the barcode custom functions in my office to mange vaccine administration for children and schedule II prescriptions (which require each piece of copyproof paper to be serialized). Its an easy, free solution.


          I use scanners and swipers from here:
