I was curious if there was any software out there, that you can have it scan the screen, and copy all the text. And of course it's not that simple, but to copy the text, with the same formatting....preferably into an access table...?

No, not if it is just an image. OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software can read the text and then translate it to text format, but the formatting is lost because there is no format information contained in an image of a document.

It is text. It is from a VB based "form" and I am just trying to prevent manually copying and pasting the text. It is all text, no picture. Really I want to get the text from this VB form from the form, into an access table automatically, or pretty close to that!
