Error Messages:

I am trying to scan a document into Word 2002.  My document is called patient information and has lines on it to fill in medical information.  I have tried several different ways to get this done and I always run into a problem trying to get it done.  I can get the document scanned in but I am just having problems getting my text entered into it.  If I scan it into a program and then open it in Word 2002 it says something about encoding options and I do not know which one to choose.  It comes up like this. (Example: nnvjkuohwrnfsnfuvfjj)It looks nothing like I scanned it in at.  I have also tried scanning it in directly to Word 2002 but it does not look like my original and I also cannot get the curser to work so that I can click and fill in the information.  I would appreciate it if anyone knows how to do this to e-mail me at and tell me step by step how to do this.  I have been trying to figure this out all week and it is about to drive me crazy!!!  Thanks so much for your help. Here is a example of the document below.

Child's Name_________________________ Phone_______________________

Address_________________________________  School____________________

Mother's Name__________________________  Father's Name______________

Scanning a document with a scanner actually creates a digital copy in an image format. Therefore you cannot directly edit the text unless you convert the image to text using an OCR software like OmniPage

You can scan the document into Word as an image.

Check to see if your scanner has an OCR software that came with it, sometimes they do.
