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?

It is not free but support is excellent and you will need it.
An Access demo is for download.
