Hi Carrie, Would you mind alerting me also of your results? I've been 
encountering trouble with Fine-Reader 8 also. I don't know if it's me but I've 
been getting too much junk. Went back to omni-page 15 and almost perfect scans, 
even though much slower. Thanks Tom

  Hi Monica,

  Sorry to hear about the problems with my scans.  I was about to say that 
nothing changed at the office 3-4 months ago, but I'm not sure that's true.  I 
started using version 8 of Finereader instead of version 7 several months ago, 
but I'd guess it's 6 months or so.  I wonder if that's what has caused the 
difference.  If you give me the name of a book with the problem, I'll run the 
.tif file through Finereader 7 and see if I can spot any differences in the 
output between the 2 versions of Finereader.  Or I can find a short book at the 
office and run a check myself.  Will let you know what I find out. Maybe I will 
have to go back to using Finereader 7...

  Sorry!   Carrie

    Hi. I'm writing to ask for help. Lately when I take one of Carrie's 
    scans, I keep running into the same problem. When I get the rtf 
    file, it has section breaks as always. However, when I use the find 
    and replace feature and replace ^b with ^m it makes 2 page breaks for 
    every section break that used to be there, and column breaks start 
    showing up where there were none before I do this replacement. This 
    only happens with Carrie's recent scans. I tried an older scan done 
    by Carrie, and it worked perfectly. This didn't start happening till 
    about 2 or 3 months ago. Before that, this find and replace thing 
    worked just fine, and I validated 30 or 40 of Carrie's books. Does 
    anyone know what I'm dealing with and what I can do to fix it? I 
    haven't applied any updates to Office XP. Am I doing something wrong 
    and just don't know it? Once I change the section breaks to page 
    breaks, sometimes the page number and header will have a page break 
    above it and then right below it so that a book of 500 pages ends up 
    being over 900 pages with these breaks. I am seriously stumped. Can 
    any of you help?
