I am trying to scan images into an Access database. This seems like it would be fairly common task but I can't seem to find much information on it. Here is what I am trying to do.....

I would like to have a user place a document on/in a scanner, press a button on an access form, have the image scanned, store the image file in a predefined folder on the computer and store the file path and name in a text filed in the access database.

I am hoping there are some controls/forms already written to assist with this one....

Does anyone have any thoughts on this one?
