When you have an item like a pair of pants for example does the bar-code on the label actually contain any information about the product like size, color etc. or does it only relate to a record you already have in a database.
In other words if you have 100 items of different types would a bar-code scanner help put that info in a data base or does it only help if you create a record first and associate it with the code number and then scan many of the same items?
Would something like MS Access be able to be used with a bar-code scanner?
Thanks for any help.
