Would like to know if anyone has used a usb tablet to put a signature in a database? If so, how?

There are several companies that offer the required ActiveX controls... such as https://www.topazsystems.com/access.html but it can be costly.

If you have a little bit of HTML and JavaScript experience, this can be done relatively easily. There's quite a few nice JS libraries out there for taking signatures (if you're interested, I can check and see which it is that we use), which can then be sent to a database in various formats for storage.

Also have a look at this example app Signature Capture. It was designed for use with a Windows tablet
