Using MS Access/connect fingerprint device and Access 2010 Database

Question
Hi Scott,
I'm using Access 2010 database for employee attendance, it contains a working table with starting time and ending time for the employee so we can use it for calculating worked hours and over time
Now we are going to use a fingerprint device, how can I connect (or transfer or import) the data from the device to this table in the database

thank you

Answer
That depends on the device. A fingerprint reader is basically an alternative input device. So you need to see how the fingerprint scan is stored on the PC And then read it from Access.

Hope this helps,
Scott<>
