Use MSComm32.ocx Control

by Mohammad Oweis In reply to How To Get Data From any ...

You can use mscomm32.ocx control to read the data from weigh bridge to the DB using the MSAccess software.
Actually, we already have the same scenario.
We use weigh bridge machine to weight the trucks and connecting the machine via serial cable to the PC to COM1, then use the MSAccess application to read the weight from the indicator.

Unfortunately i can't help you very much, as i am not a developer. but i know that we use the mscomm32.ocx inside the application to read the weight.

But make sure that the following windows update is not installed on the PC MS09-055, because after installing this update mscomm32.ocx will no longer be able to read data from COM port. i experienced that
