How do I scan a form into Word?  I can save the document into Word but none of the formatting is correct.  All the text boxes are removed.  This is my first use with a scanner so I'm new at this.

In order to do this you need some special software designed to handle forms.  Caere makes Omniform - see at http://www.caere.com/products/omniform/.

Try also this site: http://www.principiaproducts.com/

Both are applications designed to scan and fill out forms.  You can even design forms.

johlari-the information was very helpful.  The web addresses were great and provided me valuable information.  For future reference, the Principia Remark Office OMR does not currently appear to support the HP ScanJet 3300C.  The Caere OmniForm 4.0 is exactly what I was after and does support my HP scanner.  I was also able to download an updated scanmanager.  Thank you
