First thing to try would be swapping the scanner for a known working unit.

If the problem persists, then it is probably a software issue, and uninstalling and reinstalling the scanning software would be the next thing to try.

If that also fails, perhaps a different OCR program such as OmniPage would address the issue.

Scanning into word directly is usually for inserting pictures, since each page from the ADF is then considered a picture it is just placing them on the first page of the word document, word is the problem, not the scanner.

I would suggest that multiple pages be scanned into PDF or TIF files with the scanners software (I don't know that specific scanner), or with Acrobat, or with (depends on what windows you have) Fax and Scanner tool/Windows Imaging.

JermTheWorm: yes you are rite. I have changed from word to PDF. There were option on the scanner software which was causing this to save into single page. Thanks for your help.
