The sample shows instructions and algorithm of how to search barcodes in documents and write results to file with barcode reader sdk and how to make it run in your VBScript application. ByteScout Barcode Suite is the bundle that privides 3 SDK products to generate barcodes (Barcode SDK), read barcodes (Barcode Reaer SDK) and read and write spreadsheets (Spreadsheet SDK) and you can use it to search barcodes in documents and write results to file with barcode reader sdk with VBScript.
These VBScript code samples for VBScript guide developers to speed up coding of the application when using ByteScout Barcode Suite. This VBScript sample code is all you need for your app. Just copy and paste the code, add references (if needs to) and you are all set! Further improvement of the code will make it more robust.
ByteScout provides the free trial version of ByteScout Barcode Suite along with the documentation and source code samples.
