[access-uk] Re: bar code readers

Hi Carol,

The other point to note with any scanner like Scanacan, is that you are 
tied to your computer.  So if your kitchin larder is downstairs, and your 
computer is up, and you have no wireless bar code scanner, then it won't be 
much fun lugging tins upstairs, just to find out what's in them 
<Smile>.  And before anyone asks, I haven't seen a wireless bar code 
scanner yet for a computer.  The only portable scanner, i.e. not tied to 
any type of computer, as far as I know, is the ID Mate, which is 
distributed by Force Ten (http://www.forcetenco.co.uk).

Hope this helps.

All the best
