Scanning to Microsoft Excel
The Scan to Microsoft Excel task in the New Task window lets you create Microsoft Excel documents from images obtained from a scanner or a digital camera.
- Open the New Task window, click the Scan tab, and then click the Scan to Microsoft Excel task.
- Select a device and specify scanning settings.
- Click the Preview button or click anywhere inside the image.
- Review the image. If you are not satisfied with the quality of the image, change the scanning settings and click the Preview button again.
- Specify conversion settings. These settings determine the appearance and properties of the output document.
- Preserve formatting.
Select the appropriate setting depending on how you plan to use the output document.
- Formatted text
The font types, font sizes, and paragraph formatting will be retained.
- Plain text
Only the paragraphs will be retained. A single font will be used throughout.
Select the language(s) of your document. See also: OCR languages.
- Keep pictures
Select this option if you want to preserve the pictures in the output document.
- Create a separate sheet for each page
Select this option if you want to create a separate Microsoft Excel spreadsheet from each page of the original document(s).
Use this option to specify image preprocessing settings, such as detection of page orientation and automatic preprocessing settings. These settings can significantly improve source images, resulting in greater OCR accuracy. See also: Image processing options.
Opens the XLS(X) section of the Format Settings tab of the Options dialog box, where you can specify additional settings (you can also open this dialog box by clicking Options... on the Tools menu).
Click Scan Again to scan more pages using the current settings or click Finish Scanning to close the dialog box.
When the task is completed, a Microsoft Excel document will be created in the folder that you specified. All of the document's pages will also be opened in the OCR Editor.
