OCR software - reports into spreadsheet data
Posted on 2001-08-29
Can anyone recommend a program that will take the old, fan-sheet type printed reports (page by page) and scan them accurately into an Excel spreadsheet?
I've tried demos of FineReader, Presto, WinOCR and Imaging Professional - can't find demos of Omnipage or Textbridge. The ones I've tried recognize text fine, but can't handle currency figures that use commas (eg: $1,200). They export to Excel, but Excel doesn't recognize them, even when you format the cells manually.
