I have not tested in Dbase but bar code scanners should enter the read
text into the field that has focus. The problem will be proceeding to
next field i.e. pressing enter through program.
There was some discussion on this issue but I do not remember when and
As for printing Bar Code you can use labels. Design them just like as if
you were printing text and change the font of the bar code line to bar
You may have to add * at the beginning and the end for the code to be
readable by scanner. I do not remember the exact sequence had worked on
it long ago.
