Card entry type setup
Not school-related, but hoping you can help.
I've got a client who wants a very basic system, supply a card to a member, containing name and last date paid info.
Then, upon swiping, said information is displayed on the monitor. No more features than that required.
I've never dealt with any of these things before, can anyone point me in the right direction?
You can get swipe card / RFID proximity card readers that will act as USB keyboards when plugged into a computer, they just "type" the serial number of the card into the computer for you. They don't read any other data off the card, just the serial number, so you use that serial number as a record key for a database containing the actual data you want to record.

Could you make something in Access using a CMS-type template? Then use the serial number that the card reader picks up to search?
