Comm port access using ACCESS 97

By dennis ·
I have a system running Windows 98 with Office 97 Professional. I am wondering if anyone has the answer on how to access com1 or com2 for use with a external bar code reader. I have a routine already written for sending data to a modem, however I need to be able to retrieve the data from the bar code reader. Any solutions? maybe even some 3rd party software?

Comm port access using ACCESS 97

Dennis,

This is relatively simple using the COMM control that comes with either VB or Access. It's very easy to use. If your interested in using it, send me an EMail [ranger@oceanfree.net] and I'll send you some sample code. I have created a program that reads information from a barcode scanner via the comm port. Not hard at all.
