    Use 3 of 9 if for internal use, simply download the font from internet and
    put astirisk in front and at end of number.

    Almost any barcode reader which can send either a Return or Tab
    character will work fine with Filemaker. Fonts for Mac or Windows are
    sold all over, but basically a bar code is just a alphanumeric string
    which is read into a field. A bar code scanner is just another input
    device, like a keypad.

    With some thought, it isn't hard to integrate bar codes and readers at
    all. Some expertise at user interface and scripting is going to make
    this smoother. Think things through. Design for lowest common
    denominator, and error check the heck out of things at every step.

    Start here:

    And do a little web research yourself on hardware. It's out there. We
    are not really hardware vendors. ;)

    Default Thank You

    Thanks Lynn and Howard.......

    I am off and running towards www.lifesuccess.org

    I am not sure about scripting for barcoding but maybe this answer will be
    forth coming as I move closer to this type of solution for my customer.

    If you are searching for a barcode solution, you need to determine
    what information you are wanting a barcode to carry. If you are simply
    looking to encode a serial number that contains only 1-10 characters,
    you may consider finding a font online. There are free barcode
    True-type fonts online at various sites. The task is finding them.

    When you get the font, you install it to the Fonts folder of your
    Windows system. You can then use the font on your layouts. Remember
    though that most barcode readers require start/stop charactes at the
    beginning and end of the barcode. These characters are usually
    asterisks (*) in type fonts. You type *1234567890* and then change the
    font to the barcode font. "3 0f 9" is good for all standard ascii
    characters, 2 of 5 is only good for numbers. (I think.)

    Happy hunting!

    Thanks Greg...

    With each person responding, I am learning more in what appears alien to me
    right now.

    I appreciate your feedback as well.

    It is not difficult at all, just go find a quality barcode font. You
    will be disappointed on free ones.

    I recommend one good barcode font source -
