Displaying value from digital scales in MSAccess form

    Hi,
    I have just purchased some digital scales that have a serial connection.
    I can successfully connect to the scales using hyperterminal and they print
    the current weight to the screen about twice a second.

    I now need to get this value into MSAccess in a form so I can record and use
    it.

    I have played around with MSCOMM32.OCX, but I cant figure out how to use it.

    I placed the control on the form, then a text box and then a button.

    In the button code I put the following

    TEXT1.value = ActiveXCtl0.value

    but it just displays a "1".

    I have read previous posts that link to sites such as

    http://mvps.org/rgrier/

    and

    http://www.granite.ab.ca/access/serialport.htm


    but neither have helped me.

    I have also installed the NetCommOCX and tried to use that but it gives me
    the same results.

    I'm stuck, any help however small, appreciated.

    Thanks

    Paul

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
