Barcode reading for Books

Recommended Posts

Guest KM354

I just started the trial version. My biggest issue is with making an inventory of my books. Apparently this software is not set-up for it. I get the correct image and info from the barcode for the book, however, title, author, publishing date are not set-up. I used the "Preference-column set-up" and got user-defined fields, but now have to either type or cut/paste all the info from the barcode reading. This takes as long as if I would go back using a spreadsheet.  What am I missing?????

Yes, that would require we basically hard code "book related" fields into the program so that scanning book barcodes would populate those fields.  Or change the program so that a designated user defined field would receive certain scanned input.

To be honest, HomeManage is not ideal for book collectors, just someone who needs to inventory a few books in their house as part of a home inventory.
