No one here will guide you step by step. You have google for it. If you have specific error or issue in code that you are unable to solve after many efforts,post it here.

For barcode scanner you don't have to write any code. It is an inbuilt functionality of the barcode scanner that when you scan the item, it will write scanned code on the cursor's position.

For example : On your page load, if default focus has been set to the some particular textbox and when you scan the code, it will write scanned code on that text box and based on scanned code you can retrieve price and all those information of the scanned item.

Simple , see i want to computerise all purchases and sales for my store.. for example i am buying a shampoo bottle , what i want is to make its bill using barcode scanner .., do i have to store the details of shampoo in my data base say SQL i.e, its price per unit , vendor name , total quantity ... and now when i m to sale it ... now what ??

for generating bills you don't have to store it in database. Just write the code which can retrieve the price of scanned item, vendor name and accept quantity from user (this can be manual process by user. so user has to enter quantity manually) and generate report and print that report.
