    Using VBA to Control MS Document Imaging Features (Office XP/Access XP)

    I am trying to create an Access database that will allow a user to click a button a form which will then scan in an image from the scanner and place the result in a field on the form. I had originally been looking at the Kodak Imaging controls, but as yet I have not figured out how to make them work.

    But during my experimentation, I stumbled across the Microsoft Document Imaging feature of Office XP and I was wondering if there is a way to use this feature from an Access form. Ideally, the user would place the item on the scanner, click a button on the form and Access would scan the image and place it directly into the field without the user having to do anything else.

    If anyone has any ideas, suggestions and/or examples of using either approach, I certainly would appreciate the help! Thanks.

    I played with the Kodak controls that are in Win98SE, and seemed to get them working; at least to the point where I felt I was starting to understand them. I don't know if same controls are still XP, and I don't know anything about the XP document controls you mentioned. If I can dig it out, I'd be glad to send you the Access97 imaging database I had created. Understand that it is merely a test database that I was playing with, and not any sort of finished product.

    The Kodak controls were part of Windows, not Office. I understand that they've been dropped from WinXP, since it has its own approach to this.
