What does James say about support for that database? Does he provide some?
If so, try to contact him.

It'd only be a matter of chance to find someone here that has used it. If
you had mentioned where you obtained it, if there was someone _that_
interested, he/she could go take a look. As it is, they'd have to Google for
it.

Speaking of which, did you Google at http://groups.google.com to see if you
could find posts on the subject. I believe this newsgroup's archive starts
about 1995...

I don't know what James' mdb does, but barcoding is actually a very
simple matter of using the correct font with delimiters.

Yes, you can set the font of a text control in a form to barcode. Make
sure you have proper delimiters. In code 39 barcode, the common
delimiter is a *, though some barcode readers can be customized to
recognize other delimiters which I wouldn't recommend as * is pretty
universal.

So if you had a field MySerial for which you wanted to show the data in
a text box in a form (or report) called myTextBox, you would enter the
control source for myTextBox as:

= "*" & [MySerial] & "*"

Scanners won't be able to scan from the computer screen, but if you
print the form, you'll have no problem scanning it. For the barcodes I
use, I prefer at least a 10 point font size and 12 is ideal.

I've switch browsers and lost all my links rto barcode pages, but if you
google, you'll find some common fonts.
