Preferred Solution: Converting scanned document from image to a word/excel document

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

URGENT!! (Isn't it always?) I need to convert a multiple tab excel document to a word document. I read that I can save as a pdf, then convert to word but I have only Adobe Reader. If this can be done, is there a way to conserve the original format and the links in the excel doc?I would prefer leaving in excel but the customer needs a word document. Also, just in case I can convince to leave in excel -- is there a way to print the excel file as one document without printing each tab separately? If so, how do I ensure the formatting looks good to print as a regular 8.5 x 11 document?Thanks for any help.

You can use OCR, i.e text recognition. I'm not 100% sure if Adobe Reader does it, but Adobe Acrobat Pro definitely does. There's probably a few other free alternatives out there as well.

Try opening it as a file type "Extract text from any file" - this often gives you at least the main part of the text so that you can read it or make a new Word doc out of it.

We have two older computers, both with Microsoft Works - as well as Word. Our newer laptop has stand alone Word 2013. I would like to know how to copy a WDB document on flash drive and put it on the laptop with Word 2013.
Thanks

Answer:Converting a Microsoft WDB to a Word document

If you can save the file on the older computer as a .csv file it will open in Excel if you have that on the laptop. As far as I'm aware .wdb files are database documents so you'll probably struggle to open it in any word processing program without the use of a third party file converting program. I could well be wrong there though.

a few things.
1. CTRL + Click usually opens links from office docs
2. it may not be a link, rather, just a pleasantly blue underlined formatted text string.
3. if the url is not embedded in the text, then you can't convert text to an (unknown) url unless that text string is a wellformed HTTP anchor that resolves to a valid domain. The sort of quantum mechanics to predict where a word(s) should be hyperlinked to has yet to be developed

Answer:converting PDF file to Word Document formant

If its been scanned in as a PDF, then its just a "photo" of the page.

You need to use OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software to convert a scanned image to a document. Such software (Textbridge, Iris etc) usually comes with the scanner, but do not expext miricles with it.

Having the PC decide exactly what part of the scanned image is text, what is an image and correctly decode it to the relevant parts is complex and "consumer variety" OCR is usually less than perfect.

If the PDF is in electronic format (prior to being printed and scanned) software exists that will convert it directly to text (I use Solid Converter PDF) but this approach only works where the person creating the PDF has allowed such activities.

When saving a Word 2007 document as a webpage (htm, html), an extra folder is automatically created besides the hmtl document itself. This folder contains background information like pictures, wallpaper etc. Is there a way to prevent that folder from being created in the first place? I've got Word 2000 on another computer, and when I save my word documents as html files over there, that extra folder is not generated. The only time that folder is created in 2000 is if my documents contain pictures, wallpaper etc. In Word 2007, it is created all the time, even though my documents are just plain text.
 

Answer:Solved: Word 2007, saving document as html document: how to get rid of extra folder?

Managed to find the solution, it was very simple after all. One has to save the document as a filtered webpage and click "yes" when a box pops up warning you that you will use certain featuers which are specific to Office2007, such as the background. Then the document will save without that extra folder and files.

I am running XP and Word 2000 and Nortons. Word will crash if you leave the document open for a while (there is no specific time frame) and then select close (icon). The error - Microsoft Word for Windows has encountered a problem and needs to close. The details are: AppName: winword.exe
appver 9.0.0.3822
Modname: kernel32.dll
modvers: 5.1.26002180
offset 0001eb33

This has pretty much happened since I got this laptop. I have reformatted and reinstalled everything (due to another problem) and still have the same problem with word. I have used the same CD on other computers to install word and they do not have the same problem.

I use a variety of templates and plain documents in my work and can not pin point it to one template.

If you leave Word open with a document (no matter what size) and come back to it later this is when the problem happens. I started to get around it my saving first then closing, but this no longer works. The save completes and then I select Close and this is when it happens - you get the dreaded pause and then you hear the whirl of the computer and then you get the Microsoft Word for Windows has encountered a problem and needs to close. Firstly I could put up with it but is now just a nusiance.

I have two questions regarding documents created in Word 2007...

1) Can links be created within a Word document? For example, can I click on and item my table of contents and have the document jump to that particular section of the document?

2) Also, is there a way to make sections of the document hidden until the user clicks a specific word or graphic in the document?

I'd like to specify a particular instruction and include a "Show example" link that would make a detailed example appear for those who needed the extra help.

Thanks everyone!

Answer:Word 2007 - Links within a document? Hide/Show sections of a document?

If you created table of contents through References - Table of Contents, you can hold Ctrl and click on the item in that table, word will take you there. This feature is standard.

Also, to navigate inside document you can use bookmark option.
Insert bookmarks. Word 2010 Bookmarks
Then insert Hyperlink - in the window select second tab "Place in This Document" and choose your bookmark.

As for hiding parts of document, I do not think that is possible.
You can create that in HTML document with javascript, but not in Word document.

I open an older (saved) Word document, by clicking on the saved file, not by using the "Open" function in Word.3. The New (empty) document disappears, only the older document is open.

This might be kind of tricky.

We're trying to streamline our RFQ-to-Quote process, which currently utilizes a combination of digital forms and hand-written forms passed among several departments. My boss asked me to modify the RFQ form to save him some typing (because he has to retype all the information in the final Quote), and I--not understanding the complexity of the process--very stupidly told him that it could be done fairly simply using form fields and bookmarks. He's been kind enough to grant me a lot of leniency because for him anything would be better than the current situation, so as long as I can improve on what we use now, he'll be happy.

I thought about creating form templates for each of the departments, then as the original RFQ circulated from one department to the next subsequent forms would be appended to it to create a rolling document. I'm not too happy with the that idea; there's all sorts of room for user error. I thought about creating a single document template containing every department's form, but a) I don't want any single department to be able to modify information gathered during another department's process, and b) certain departments must generate a variable number of copies of their form.

I told my boss the best way to accomplish a secure and low-maintenance RFQ-to-Quote would be to create a stand-alone Quote Generator application, but we both agree the effort is not condusive to the timeframe by whic... Read more

Hi all.

The other day whilst in the throws of fixing another unrelated problem I came across a strange and annoying Word Document problem.

When I bought this word document up it present a very unusual icon. It was grayed out and part of the title contained a ~$ then the name of the document.

When I tried to open it, the word document only opened up to the gray page just before it should turn white displaying the text, and there it froze.

Nothing worked after that! The freeze was so bad that the only way to close the window was to turn the computer off at the tower.

After rebooting I tried it again 2 more times with the same problem freeze occurring in the Word document.

Today I again found another document that caused the same problem, this time the icon for that document was normal but right beside this icon was another malformed grayed out ~$(name) icon.

When I tried to open either of the 2 icons I got the same freezing up problem, just as before.

I tried a previously suggested step in that I opened "Word" and from there navigated to where the bad files were located.

In turn I only hi-lighted each, and at the bottom of that window clicked on the arrow for the drop down box.

I was advised that one of the presented options was to repair the file. No such option was present.

So there you have it. Any advice on this problem please?

I ascertained that all the aforementioned "defective " Word documents originated in the same folder. After performing several search functions with the criteria as ~$.doc no other such files were found on my computer, other that the already mentioned.

All tests suggested would not repair the said documents.

I have now deleted the offenders and I will monitor the situation. If I run into problems again I will re-post.

On my previous computer with Windows 2000, I was able to make incremental backups of a Microsoft Word document while it was being created by me. The advantage of this was that if an "accident" happened and the document was lost or corrupted before it was completed or saved to a folder, the partially completed document could be retrieved from a special folder somewhere in C-drive. I was able to specify how often a new backup was created (ex.: every 3 minutes, ex.; every 10 minutes, etc.). It is possible that this special folder also contained backups of all previously saved Word documents, which were also being re-backed up every few minutes. -- I cannot find any reference to this on my new computer (Windows XP and Microsoft Word 2002) in the Windows search engine, or in the Word user interface "Help".

I was working on a Word document that someone sent me by email in form of rar and saved the document. I now can't find the revised file and I have lost about 8 hours of work. Any ideas on where I can find this file? I looked in the email that was originally sent, but it is still the old file. I have also done searching on my computer with no luck. Help, I'm desperate!!! I have Word 2007. Please give me reply as soon as possible.
 

Answer:Cannot find the saved revised document in Word document

If you were only hitting "Save" and not "Save As" the document is likely, unfortunately, gone. You can try opening Word by itself and going through recent documents to see if it shows up. If you opened it directly from the email and the email was in Outlook, you might be able to find it in the Outlook Secure Temp Folder. To get to this folder, the easiest way is to send yourself a PDF file, open the PDF from the email then go to File | Properties and on the General tab (this is from memory, so I might be off a little bit) you'll find a location that you can click on. In this folder, you have a slight chance of finding the modified file. The only other option you have, that I can think of, would be digging through your temp folders hoping to find a .tmp or .doc file in there that has the content, but I give that about a .01% chance of happening. Good Luck!

Hi,

I work at a small non-profit and we have updated two computers with new computers running Windows 7. We use MS Word 2003. I have checked all threads on forum related to this issue, but nothing seems to correct our problem. I would be grateful for any help.

Hi There

I'm not sure if this is possible to do using VBA. Here is an example only.

In an Excel spread sheet, suppose that I have the following in Column A starting in Cell A2 with the coresponding Numbers in Column B starting in cell B2 :

Revenues $100,000
NOI $50,000
Costs $10,000
I also have an MS Word document minimized that has the following words: The words obviously could change.

I have been working for this company for 1 year and have made revenues of $XXXXXX. My NOI are only $XXXXXX and I also know form my accounting department that my costs are now down to $XXXXX.
What I want to do now is the following. Instead of copying and pasting from the Excel to the word document the dollar amounts, I want to create a macro that picks the dollar amounts from the Excel worksheet an places them in the proper places in the word document where the XXXXX are. To create your workbook and the MS Word Doc, use the generic default names (book1 and document1)

I believe that I have expalained myself on what I want to do. keep in mind that the text in the MS Word document is not fixed. The XXXX can be anywhere. You can use the words revenues, NOI and costs as identifiers in the word document. Also, in the Excel workbook, the information need not be specifically in Columns A or B. But once again the identifiers are the same, Revenues, NOI and Costs.

Thanks,

Mario

I have a word document with 6 pages of content, no tables just text. I need to import this into an excel spreed sheet. However I need everything to have its own cell. For example if my word document says:

Cows cannot jump high and cost $400
However Frogs can jump very high an $2
But cats can kind of jump high and cost $10

then I would need the cells to be filled like this

[Cows] [cannot] [jump] [high] [and] [cost] [$400]
[However] [Frogs] [can] [jump] [very] [high] [an] [$2]
[But] [cats] [can] [kind] [of] [jump] [high] [and] [cost] [$10]

Is there a way to quickly do this? I have word and excel 2010.

Answer:Excel to Word document

Hey,
I have just the thing!

I am a Macro novice so please don't expect me to be able to explain how this works.

If you create a button and assign this macro to it, when clicking the button it will export everything between two cells into a word document (as an image).

The important bits you've got to worry about are:

Set wd = wdApp.Documents.Open("C:\test.doc") - c:\test.doc is the location of a word document (you have to set this up).

Range("A1:G22").CopyPicture xlScreen, xlPicture - The Range between cells is what is coppied.


Sub PasteToWord()

Dim wdApp As Object
Dim wd As Object

On Error Resume Next
Set wdApp = GetObject(, "Word.Application")
If Err.Number <> 0 Then
Set wdApp = CreateObject("Word.Application")
End If
On Error GoTo 0

Set wd = wdApp.Documents.Open("C:\test.doc")

wdApp.Visible = True

Range("A1:G22").CopyPicture xlScreen, xlPicture
wd.Range.Paste

End Sub

Hope this helps!

Answer:Printing a mirror image of a document in Word.

I don't know of any way to do this directly in Word. You can flip objects but not text. You could print the page and then scan it as a picture and open this in an image program to reverse it or even just insert it back into Word where it will now be an object and can be flipped. Alternatively you could print the page on a transparency and photocopy or scan it from the wrong side.

2) The word document file name automatically created(using the issue title in the user form) and inserted into the excel sheet under issues for it to be reopen and viewed in Microsoft word.

First, welcome to the forum!!!

The best way for one of the Excel gurus to work on your problem would be to post your file, after you have removed any confidential data (make a copy and do the editing in it). If it is too large, zip it first (and zip is preferred to rar).
If you are unable to post the file (there seems to be a problem at times with people who don't have very many posts being able to attach files) just send me an email via my profile (include the URL link to this thread). I will respond to you and then you can send it to me, after which I will post it for you.

Hi all,

I'm looking for a way in either Excel or Word 2010 to add text to a line before the text. So, for example I have something like this:

Name1
Name2
Name2
etc..

And then I want to add "1 " before each line in a way that is copy pastable, so it looks like so:

1 Name1
1 Name2
1 Name3
etc..

Is there anyway to do this. it's mostly just to help with copying text from Word/Excel documents onto forums so it formats correctly. Any help at all is much appreciated

Cheers,
Matt
 

Answer:Solved: Word/Excel 2010 Adding text before each line in a Document

Hi Matt,
It's probably a little cleaner to do it in Excel than in Word, but also a few extra steps. In Word:

You can run a find a replace. Without including the quotes, find "^p" (the paragraph symbol) and replace with "^p1 " (there's a space after the 1). This replaces the paragraph break at the end of each line with another paragraph break and then "1 " at the beginning of the next line. The problem with this method is that the first line won't have a 1 in front of it (because there's no paragraph break before that line) and the last line will have a stray 1 after it. But this should be relatively minor cleanup.

Alternatively, in Excel:

Insert a column to the left of your names. Without including the quotes, enter "1" in the first cell and copy it down your spreadsheet. Insert a column to the right of your names and enter this formula (assuming your names are now in column B):

=A1&" "&B1

This should give you the result you're looking for in column C. Hope that helps.

Welcome to TSG
The utility program sometimes does that.

if it was an AV scan. try running a system scan with
AdwCleaner
and MalwareBytes

but if the scanned document was saved to word as a doc file. right click the document to open. if the document was saved as pdf open with a program like sumatra.

I scanned a document for the first time and tried to send as an email attachment but get an adobe message saying " Acrobat is unable to connect to your email programme". I have mail accounts with Google and Yahoo. Can you help?

Answer:Emailing a scanned document

Just attach your scanned document as you would any other image, as a scan is nothing more than a photograph of the document.There is no need to use Adobe. If using Gmail just click on attach file, go to where you have saved your scanned image and click on open.

Is there a programme which I could use to correct/change/add to/and/or delete a part of/ of a scanned text with a picture on it. I would want to edit the text and delete the picture. Thanks for any help I can get.

Answer:How to edit a scanned document

What you need is OCR software. It generally comes as part of the software package with a scanner/multifunction printer. Alternatively check for free downloads . It can be a bit hit and miss though.

I'm trying to convert a scanned document to a pdf file so I can type to it. I have downloaded a free program called Primo but it is not working.HELP!!

Answer:how can i print to a scanned document

PrimoPDF, like many other free PDF converters, installs as a printer and creates a PDF file when you "print" to it from another application.These utilities do not allow for editing of the PDF file.In most cases, what you need to is scan the document into a word processing application, such as MS Word, edit it and then print it to a PDF converter - assuming PDF is the final format you are going for.In addition, your scanner software needs to have OCR (Optical Character Recognition) capabilities in order to create a file that can be edited. If your scanner/scanner software is only capable of creating images from a scanned document, you won't be able to edit any text in the scanned file.It is my understanding that there are free PDF creation utilities that allow for editing of the document, but I am not familiar with any of them so I can't make a recommendation. (Maybe somebody else will step up.) I just noticed that the PrimoPDF site offers a free trial of utility called nitroPDF, but it's $99 to purchase it.My main point here is that utilities such as PrimoPDF, CutePDF and PDFcamp Printer are not going to allow you edit the PDF's that they create.

A friend has scanned a document and sent it to me but I cant open it. I am using windows 98SE and have Kodak Imaging for Windows and Epson PhotoQuick 3.4. The error message is "the documents format is invalid or not supported" any ideas?

Answer:Scanned document problem

You need to find out what file format the document has been sent to you in, (jpeg,tiff,bmp etc), right click it and select properties that should tell you what it it, next you need to download and install a viewer program that will open that particular file, (and others) members on the forum seem to favour Irfan view but there are plenty of other free ones about, some are available from click hereHope this helps...alB
