Title

Scan to field possible?

Post

I use Filemaker Pro 9.x on Mac OS X. I am looking for a way to allow a user to scan directly from an attached scanner (i.e., snap scanner or other similar) into a database field. I don't really care if a file is created in the filesystem and linked/placed/imported into the field, but if so, it must be invisible to the user, immediate, and require no action on behalf of the user. Is something like that possible with Filemaker Pro (or even Bento), without add-ons? With add-ons? If so, how might one create such a field?
