Hi, I suggest you look for the SDK (software development kit) that comes with the card reader. If you are lucky it will be in VB :)

You install the SDK and reference it in your project. You will also need some documentation to be able to use it.

Good luck

I have to do this very same thing. Can you give me any words of wisdom or advice before I attempt this myself. I want to create a modular component that drops data into a access database. The index page must be able to be exchanged on a per client bases. The interface must be able to take information from credit cards and drop it in the database from a magnetic card reader and be touch screen enabled. Any tips or pointers would be appreciated.
