need to find a cost effective inventory system

P: n/a
I am look to find information regarding barcode scanners and the
programs to upload to a database. I want to be able to scan an item
and see if it is in inventory. I also need to checkin items and print
part numbe, location and $$ on labels.
I have access and I can make my inventory but I can not seem to have
the scanner input to search the database. Is that done with a query I
setup? I am very much a newbie. I am reading a book on Access but it
does not get into details. I dont need anything fancy just basic
inventory updates and inventory searches.

Sorry for the poorly writen message.

Any direction would be apreciated.

RVB Systems Group has an Access based system called Track'Em that
would work for you. It's priced at $395 with a corded USB scanner or
$895 with a portable scanner. You can download a demo at
