How do I get my PDA to scan bar codes into pocket excel while I'm scanning into another program?

I use a Dell Axim x5 with a scanner attached to scan the bar codes of books in order to find out their prices on the net. I would like to get a listing of each bar code scanned in pocket excel without having to scan each bar code twice.


Answer

Usually scan bar devices got the scanned bar info into one application
So you need to have any book scanned twice in order to make it in both applications

If you want it to read the bars into Excel only, then just open Excel, and start read the books

You might need to press enter after each read

Shopping List software for Pocket PC Windows Mobile with POS style interface?

I would like to get a shopping list software for my smartphone, but all of the ones i've seen are either overly complicated or just simple checklists.

I would like to have a program that functions similar to a point-of-sale, when you search for an item in a database, it adds it to a "cart", you specify the quantity, and it adds the total cost as it goes. I would also like the ability to alter a line's quantity or price, as well as add a one time MISC item that is not in the database. I also have Pocket Excel; I'm not sure if there is a clever way to setup something like this with the limitations of Office Mobile.

I've searched freewarepocketpc.net and haven't found anything I like. Any ideas?

If I were you, I would do it in Pocket Excel, step by step using functions

It is true that it is limited Excel, but even though you can do a lot with it
