    try this

    Are you using an SQLite database to store them? Or are you just putting them into the table?

    In SQL you'd use
    cmd is a Command object, reader is a DataReader object

    If IsNull(reader.Value)=false Then reader.close
    sqlText="Select Count(BarCode) as BarCodeCount Where BarCode=yourbarcodevalue"

    the result comes back in reader.GetValue(0)

    The 1st line makes sure the reader is closed. If it isn't closed you get a runtime error when you try to use the command object.

    I hope this helps.

    If you're doing it from the table then set a filter and get the rowcount

    Table1.Filter("BarCode='" & yourbarcode & "'")
    Table1.Filter("") clears the filter
