You should try the example database from csXImage:

The Access Demo link is near the bottom.

The control is not free but fair, and the support is excellent. Scanners are beasts and you can waste a lot of time fighting without the right tools.

Yes, it is free to use.
But you probably wish to modify it a lot. It shows just the basics.

No, but it will work with the scanner.

If you see an error, write detailed info to support. They probably know your scanner and its quirks.

This is an Access related issue.

Try to download again. If same issue, report it to support.

Also, I can see, this is the original demo, still in Access 97(!).
Ask if not Simon could provide a newer format, like Access 2007.

It certainly can:

but you may have to study the documention to learn how.

With scanners, nothing comes easy ...
