FMPro for document management via TWAIN image acquisition

FMPro for document management via TWAIN image acquisition

Post by jgfaughna » Sat, 16 Oct 1999 04:00:00

I'm interested in using FileMaker Pro as a personal (home, SOHO) image
management system. I'd scan images and insert them into containers. The
result with FM Pro 5 should be accessible via the home intranet to any
web browser. I can then create my own metadata, search forms, etc.

Quick searches found no FMPro newsgroup postings on TWAIN scanner image
acquisition and insertion in recent archives, and very little on the
web. One small vendor has an image acquisition plug-in (Windows version
beta, Mac version 1.x) that handles TWAIN sources:

Anyone with experience? Any interest in this project? As I learn more
I'll add it to this web page:

there's very little there yet.)

1. Document Management or Image Management

I am wondering if Oracle supports any kind of document management
capability.  What I would like to be able to do is store about 50,000
documents in a database in an agreed upon format say PDF or Word 97 and be
able to search INSIDE of those documents.  Or what about just scanning them
in as a Image and doing the same thing.
