    Hi

    Presuming your devlopment environment is Java

    http://www-128.ibm.com/developerwork...d/?dwzone=java

    you can store your bar code as a string in the database or varchar in db speak

    html is a markup language, it doesnt actually do anything, dont you have any software with your barcode reader than can write to a database?

    Hi

    I dont know what is apex.

    I also know of barbecue java library that can produce barcodes if thats what you are looking for in svg format for the web.which you can embed in HTML page

    But on the server side you need to use java or ASP to read barcode and fire a database query.
    HTML would not serve the purpose.

    sorry i havent heard of apex language.Can apex call servlets or java ?

    regards
