You mean you wish to read the drug name and other details from the scanned picture using C#? In that case you will have to check for OCR(Optical Character Recognition). Microsoft has OCR capabilities built in to Office 2007 system and you can make use of it, I suggest you check out this article Using The Office 2007 OCR Component in C# also there are many 3rd party APIs which you can check such as
Asprise OCR for C#.net

Good luck and happy new year :)

Thanks for Help !

What I really want to do is just to compare the new scanned picture with the saved one in the table. ( With the scanner or web cam )

Oh now I get what you mean, there is this code snippet in C# http://www.dreaminco...snippet2859.htm it should be helpful for what you are trying to do although both images have to be exactly the same for the matching to work. You can find a more detailed tutorial here http://www.codeproje...ringimages.aspx Good luck :)
