Barcodes and Scanning Help
My program currently uses FilerMaker Pro 12 to organize out lending library. We are trying to swtich from a card and pocket system to barcode scanning. I'm pretty confused and I have a few questions:
1. Am I correct in assuming that a barcode plug-in will create a barcode for my assets and store it with the asset, perhaps in the image section?
(such as this one by IDAutomation http://developer.filemaker.com/solutions/detail/?item=solution.10000000488
2. After creating and printing a barcode for a book, I can hook up a USB barcode scanner and scan the barcode. Then the asset should come up in FileMaker?
3. Will I be able to print the barcodes onto labels?
I'm sorry for the silly questions. This is all a little hard to visualize, and since you have to purchase everything, I don't really have the opportunity for hands-on exploration. I'm thankful for any help.
