up thier information into access. i beleive this will save alot of time

Yes, there is a whole industry around this. Its not illegal to do as far as I know but few
people will willing turn over their drivers license without a good reason! Each state
may have slightly different methods of encoding info on the drivers license.

Check out Positive Access. There are other companies as well.

Most of these type companies supply a DLL or other code solution that works with serial
port connected scanner like the type offered by E-Seek, Inc (www.e-seekinc.com). Some are
now connected via USB but accessed using RS-232 access (MSCOMM32.OCX) with the proper USB
drivers.
