Export selected text from Omnipage 18 to Excel 2010

I would like to use OmniPage 18 to scan a page from a document that will be either a Xerox copy or a PDF or JPEG taken by my camera and use that output to extract any email addresses on the page or image. I don't know whether this is possible, but I have been led to believe that it was. I would like to export those email addresses to an Excel 2010 spreadsheet, preferably one email address to a cell/line. I would like to use an automatic document feeder send a stream pages to OmniPage. It would be nice if this can be done in a single stream process, without dealing with the massive text output and additional coding in another external process or language. Can this be done? Any help offered will be greatly appreciated and appropriate points awarded. Thanks.

I don't know a way to do this strictly within OP18. My approach would be to create Searchable PDF files. OP18 can do this in both ways that you mentioned, i.e., via a scanner with an ADF or a camera. That's the good news. The bad news is that I would then do what you do not want to do, i.e., call an external program (coded in another language) that would analyze the text in the PDF file created by OP18's OCR. Regards, Joe
