Sue, Yes, you left out that important little piece of info about not being able to delete it. Well, if the pages are consistent, and from what you've said I gather they aren't, then the Stripper will probably leave that text in the book. So, if you can't figure out how to delete it, then maybe you should release the book and let someone else tackle it. Sorry because I know that's not much help. But without seeing an example page with the problem, there's probably not much someone can do. Maybe you can release it, let someone take a look at it and tell you how to solve the problem, then they can release it for you to continue validation.

Theregular page numbers are there and I know what to do with them. But sometimes at the tops of pages, I see sts Page 4 sts Page 5 without a cursor. If I right arrow, it brings up text and these notations are covered up. However, they are still there. I believe it is something to do with the scanning machine, because I am seeing the "torn" for Tom, and "cornpany" for company error. My concern is what the stripper or system equipment will do with the sts page 4, sts page 5 error because I cannot delete it manually with Word. I hope this makes my problem clearer to you.

You should do the same.

For page numbers, it looks like this: sts page 2 or whatever page it happens to be. Is the sts important, and what does it stand for? I am wondering if I could just delete "sts page" and leave the number only. Thanks, Sue S.
