    Default Adding Excel data to a scanner type system

    Hi there,

    Im inquiring about someway I can have excel scan data in a website one at a time. I may need a program to do do this but here is the premise.

    I would like Column A full of data such as phone numbers. Then proceed to an external website and have excel send each cell of data as text into the "scanner"(copy and paste from excel into the site scanner area) then submit the data(pressing enter) and continuing until all data in column A has been scanned

    I cant go into this now

    Excel can receive scans i.e. barcode scanners data, and you can scan a4 images into excel as am image

    This is all a bit like EPOS, not direct to outside world (internet site)

    To do that your need to scan the letter or what ever in a desktop scanner, and fragment into excels cells (formatting will go straight out the windows here), threes no guarantee each scan can be fully controlled at this point thus theres going to be pain here

    You will require a powerful API to like the session together live on the internet via access at architect or administrator levels and all the rest depending on set up


    The first thing to solve is scanning from excel additional software will be required
    Excel needs to push that data to the API
    The API translates and either holds for request or pushes that data to the web site

    or

    The API holds the data
    The web site pulls the data in
    Free Excel based Web Toolbar available here.
