HI Hamed
Welcome to the forum, I've never heard of anybody trying to do this, however the simple answer would be, does the scanner you have,a memory chip, if so you could import to excel though a macro (every 15 minutes or so), if no, I'm not sure its possible, the reason is that the scanner will work like a keyboard, which gives you the exact same problem you are having, or just use any old PC or laptop with any version of office, to record your data & use the macro to import the data to your sheet.
