Hi .....
I have a form with a button called btnScan. When i click on this button
i want to scan a file and save it in the database at once.
Any hints ?? ideas ??? solutions ???

I mean by scanning the actual scanning of a document using the Scanner.
When i click on the Scan button, i need some kind of functionality that
allows me to scan and save it in the database.

This is not a good question - we cannot work out from that little what you are trying to do.
Remember that we can't see your screen, access your HDD, or read your mind.
Do you mean you need to access a TWAIN scanner? Or read a file from your HDD? Or what?

Try Like This

1)Save the file as a blob in a field in a row
2)Put the file on a server filesystem that clients can access, and put the filename in the database
