Excel/excel 2007 inventory increment
i am using excel and a handheld barcode scanner to try and keep up with my tshirt sales inventory for work. i need to be able to just scan the barcodes and add and subtract them according maybe using a barcode for adding and a different one for subtracting. i saw some of your earlier posts and i really need help. can you help me?
The methods I am familiar with working with an barcode reader and excel use the barcode readers ability to simulate keyboard entry. So using a different barcode reader would not be detected by excel. So the input method is going to input to the activecell. You could change the active cell to have one for additions and one for subtractions.
I assume you are scanning in some type of ID/sku and all the work is being done with vba code. Then you would need to modify the VBA code to make the correct interpretation based on the cell where the barcode was entered.
