Hello all.

Don't have any idea if this can be done or not.

I have a scanner that I would like to employ in my db app to scan docs.  I don't want the doc itself to be added to the db, just a String of the location of the scanned doc.  I envision creating a table to store the file name as a String into that table.

My question is on a Control Button how do you Launch the particular Scanner's scan function.

The particular Scanner being used is a Canon All in One which has it's own "Toolbox" which auto launches when you select the actual scan function on the All in One.

I've scanned around trying to find other threads and read about OCX and DLL files that I'll have to use but not sure how to go about.
