That's a good point, and a quick search got me here.You can scan barcodes with a phones camera, wonder what is the difference.
I know I don't, but I am wondering now if someone else does. Here's a couple more links I found during my quick search.anyone of you 2 guys have a Solid MSA VBA example?

Right. I am starting to think it may be possible.maybe there is a simpler (not using .Net) after all, just need to google harder.
there is a COM interface here (as mentioned in the txt file it can be used in Word, but i have yet to test).
I thought about the idea and I have a program that I wanted to ask if there is room for that@SalmanZeiad
Since there are a myriad of mobile apps that "use" the camera in conjunction with their scanning software, I would think that you could install software on the laptop that utilizes the camera and creates a barcode scan, without purchasing a Scanner or any hardware.
In fact a quick Google "laptop camera barcode scanner software" search tells me that seems to be the case.
Furthermore, many scanning devices offer options to automatically 'place' the scanned barcode number into, for example: Appending it to the last line of a text file, the next row in Excel, etc ... (and I assume the laptop camera scanning softwares would have similar capabilities). Once you installed something like that, your database could be programmed to ingest the information from wherever it was placed, I would think.
