[archive] Interacting with a Scanner application
[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 14 March 2003]I would like to be able to interact with a scanner from an acucobol program using active-x, dll, etc. In short what I would like is have my program allow the scanning in of a document and then let the operator enter key words, location, file name so this information could be captured to a field and then later searched and retrieved and the document displayed to the screen via a call from another acucobol program. In summary, a simplied imaging application. I have an equipment management program and I would like to give the operator the opportunity to scan in repair work orders, etc and associate them with a given piece of equipment.
