> We have started scanning personnel photo's onto our employee database, I am

> works but is a bit clumsy i.e. when we scan a phto the user clicks a button
> which runs a macro to represent the keystrokes etc required by the CardScan
> software to process & save the employee's photo.  The macro works by firing
> events/keystrokes depending on the name of the currently open CardScan
> window, however we now want our European divisions in Belgium & Netherlands
> to do this as well, the problem being that the macro will not recognise the
> window name as it will not be in English.
> Has anyone ever worked with CardScan scanning devices, so that perhaps I

> control the resolution etc of the photos.
> Any help on this will be appreciated, and thank you in advance for any help
