Can I identify a Telephone number to use it in a query for information

P: n/a
Hello Everyone
Nice to be back here, well all u guys have helped in past & now I would
like a favor again.
first what i want to develop is as follows:
An application for rescue station, where there is a Telephone & a
Computer System . the telephone is also connected with the computer
system, so when the telphone rings, the Computer can act as a CLI &
could identify, which number the call is coming from. it gets that
number, matches it with the Database..& returns the name & address to
whom the number is subscribed with..thats it..
Please can any one of u help me in this.. as I have very little
knowledge in VC & VB.. can any one give me a running application with
source code please.. I'll be most thankful to him..

waiting for ur reply..
Thank you

A few (from my perspective) years ago Scientific American published an
article which suggested that some systems are of such importance that they
should not be trusted to a technology so prone to error and malfunction as
a computer program.

I don't have any source code and have not tried this but try GOOGLE.COM.
They have a system that if you type phone number into there search engine,
it returns the name and address for that number. It also supplies a link to
Yahoo maps. They may have a download to allow you to use VB to access this
service.

Please can any one of u help me in this.. as I have very little

source code please.. I'll be most thankful to him.. It depends very much on the type of telephone system you have is it a
standard bt line or through P.A.B.X or proprietry exchange system?
Im sure it can be done through the TAPI interface but I have no
experience of this.

The only experience I have with call popping is through a Toshiba
Stratalink dk280 system with comms enabled handsets. In this system
the computers are connected directly to the phones and a program that
listens to the phone thro the comm port is run. The program is
configured to react to certain telephony events. It passed the CLI on
a "ringing" event and then fires off a lookup. This way, the computer
would have details onscreen before the phone was even answered.

There are other "Server" based systems that achieve the same thing but
another way.

You will have to be more specific I think before anyone here can make
really usefull suggestions.
