I'm using a a vidcam to take pictures of applicants and pop them into their application form. (I'm actually putting the filename of the picture into a field in a table and using MyControl.Picture = MyTable!FileName to do this.)

However, the process now requires that I haul up the vidcam software, click on Capture, Save, and key in a filename. I haven't found a way of automating that. Ideally, a piece of software would take a filename as a parameter, tell the vidcam to take a snapshot, and save it with the filename supplied.

Anyone know of anything that does that?
