TWAIN compatible scanners
Posted on 2012-04-09
I’ve developed an application in Access 2007 that store documents and images. Currently, documents/images have to be scanned then imported into the DB which will store the file on a server with the name of the document/image in the DB. I would like to code a button that will start the appreciate device scanning capabilities. There were no standards when the scanners were purchased so therefore, there are several different scanners, but all are TWAIN compatible devices. I would have thought this to be an easy problem to overcome, but I have searched and found similar problems were solved by purchasing some other software. Hasn’t anyone written or know of a way to start a scanning device and import the scan into a DB?
