    Hello.

    I have Windows Vista Business 2006 with Excel 2003. I have been going back and forth between Windows Tech Support and Brother Printer Support to figure out a solution to a problem.

    I am trying to find out if there is any to way to scan a document and save it in excel spreadsheet format. So far, I have only been able to save it as a .tiff, which won't work for me. Now, I am trying to convert the .tiff to a .xls. I also tried to convert a .pdf to .xls, but that didn't work either.

    I have a huge amount of data entry work to do and am just trying to make it go by faster. Does anyone have any suggestions? :confused:

    You need a OCR program to scan the data into "Text" not a image. Most scanners come with one.
