Question
Hello
Can i use bar code scanner and finger print scanner in ms access.

Answer
A scanner is just an alternate input device. you need to find out how the scanner transmits what it reads to your PC. Once you know that you can read it. I suggest you contact the manufacturer of the device to see how its reading is stored.

Hope this helps,
