Hi, I'm working with several freelancers to develop a simple excel based inventory system with fingerprint authentication.
The general workflow of this app is :

1. Assuming there are 3 shifts per day, A, B, C
2. Employee A inputs data for Shift A in Sheet A
3. When changing shifts from Shift A to Shift B, excel calls fingerprint app, and authenticate employee A and B's fingerprints.
4. Once the prints are accepted. Sheet A will be locked, and Employee B continue with Sheet B for Shift B for inputting data.
5. And same procedure for Shift B to Shift C to Shift A and so on

We are using excel to simplify the project and it's already installed on users machine..

But before moving forward,
we are trying to figure out whether it is possible or not for excel to call fingerprint app using Digital Persona's SDK,
and also accept and send input from the app.
The SDK documentations says it supports .NET ActiveX,
On the documents, these are all i could find related to activeX
