Non-Compatability with MS Office v2003

Non-Compatability with MS Office v2003

Postby » Mon Sep 28, 2009 5:31 pm

I am a new evaluator of Desktop and now understand that Desktop does not work with Office v2003 only v2007. My current scanner will scan into Outlook, will copy, and receive and send faxes. What it does not do will is to scan into MS Word (v2003), where characters come all jumbled up. Is it possible to direct Desktop to scan into that application and if so how??? dsc

You are correct that Kofax Desktop is designed to work with Microsoft Office 2007, not 2003.

As a workaround, you can use Kofax Desktop to scan and save the image as .tif. You can then import the file (drag and drop or Insert | Picture | From File) into Word. However, this only worked if the .tif is black and white. Color .tif files would not import.

When scanning with Kofax Desktop you of course can perform a Fast Scan to the Desktop or other folder, or you can open the Kofax Desktop window and scan in there.
