I am looking for a scanner that would allow me to receive a truck full of cargo.  I'd like to scan Model and Serial Number of the box when I receive it.   Ideally I can scan the contents of the whole truck then dump the output to a spreadsheet where I can correct errors.   This spreadsheet will be used to import the information directly to my financial program.

Does anyone make scanners like this?

Opticon OPN 2001. It costs about $100.00

The USB OPN2001 Companion Scanner makes barcode data collection simple. Scan a barcode and it is automatically stored. This small form factor USB Companion Scanner is perfect for data-capture applications in healthcare, inventory control and retail. For easy data transfer, the device is equipped with a standard USB port, which is also used to charge the internal battery.  The OPN2001 stores up to 15,000 barcodes. OPN2001 product highlights include:

You can check de 2002 too (It features 1 MB memory, enough to accommodate over 20,000 scans with timestamps. )

It's been a few years, but I used to work at a company that partnered with Intermec whenever handheld bar code scanners were needed:

Our customers were always pleased with the Intermec products and people. Although I don't have current experience with them, I feel very good about recommending them based on my past very positive experiences. They're definitely worth putting on your short list. Regards, Joe

Thank you both.  The Opticon 2002 looks like it's about what we want.  I'm going to try it.
