One thing I have noticed with many books I have scanned is that the headers 
will have tabs associated with them--either after the page number and before 
the header on the left page, or after the header and before the page number on 
the right side of the page. That is why I do not remove all tabs and replace 
them with spaces until I check the headers and see if they have tabs with them. 
If they do, then you can search for that along with the header, tab followed by 
the header on the left page, and the header followed by a tab on the right 
page. This not only removes the tab, but removes the header as well, while 
making it very unlikely that you will remove, say the author's name, in places 
where you don't want to.

One other thing that can facilitate the automated removal of headers is to 
remove all extra space in the book before trying any Search and Replaces to 
take them out, because if there are no tabs associated with the headers, the 
amount of white space in headers can vary quite a bit, even if the headers scan 
consistently. So removing all extraneous spaces will make the headers more 
uniform, causing any Search and Replace operations to remove more of them at 
one blow.

  You got it, Denise.  The only thing is that you have to go back and check, 
putting the author's name back in the prelim pages, or if it appears after the 
text of the book, such as in acknowledgments, about the author, etc., because 
good ol' Word will take all of them out.

  Is there any quick way to get rid of the authors name at the top of each page 
or bottom where ever it appears without going through and deleting it 
individually? The problem is at least in the books I've done the page number is 
there also and I don't want to get rid of that, but I guess I could renumber 
the pages after the other is done. This would be in word. Maybe I just answered 
my own question. Get rid of the authors name with find and replace with nothing 
then number the pages again if they get messed up. Actually I just realized 
that if I only write in the authors name it won't bother the numbers. Duh. Well 
thanks for helping me figure this out by listening to me ramble.

    Hey Folks,
    I seem to recall reading somewhere, quite a long time ago, that there was a 
feature in MS Word that would allow you to select a portion of text and make it 
all upper-case. Now it may be that I'm just wishful thinking here, and that my 
memory is playing tricks on me; but I would really like this feature if it is 
    Sometimes, it seems that my K1000, using the FineReader OCR engine, which I 
otherwise prefer generally over the ScanSoft engine, will recognize text that 
is in all caps, but only capitalize the first letter of each word, or none of 
it at all. Rather than have to retype the text in all caps, which I have had to 
do, it would be nice to just be able to select it and make it all caps.
    Anyone know if this capability actually exists, or did I just make it up 
because I really want it?
    Thanks for any help with this.
