i am not sure what do you mean by scan here. is it uploading a file ? or is it scanning using scanner ?

for saving files to the database:-
ther are many ways to achieve that but what i used when i was working on vb6 was that

save the image file (renamed image file uniquely) to specific directory and then save the name of the file to the database table field.


This depends on the scanner’s driver that you want to use. If the scanner has a standard Twain driver, you can use the basic Twain functions from Twain Working group, but this somewhat low-level. You can find more information here:

If you don’t want to deal with the low-level interface, you can find some samples on the internet that use SDKs such as this project which uses leadtools.

Hope this help & good luck.
