how do I change the accepted resolution(DPI settings) that word 7 will accept? Trying to link into it with my scanner software at around 600 DPI, and message tells me that word 7 won't accept higher than 300 DPI.   Thanks

It depends on your scanner software how you can change the settings. Start your scanner-software and set them to the position you want and save them. If you scan directly from word and your scanner-software-window does not pop up by itself, WORD will read the standard-settings from your scan-software and work as you whish.
