Has anyone tried scanning & storing the MICR codes on checks, much like they would a bar code, then using that as the key to access records?


Back in the pre Windows days of DOS we developed a program in IBM Business Basic, scanned the MICR codes on a check scanner, and then used that has the key to access a person financial activity.    


Surely, 20+ years later our modern technology will allow us to do that again, say off an iPhone?
