Re: after scanning will not bring up on ms office word
Most ikely your scanned document is a GIF, JPG, BMP or even PDF document and not a word document, as for scanning it into word requires special software (OCR software). Try this: right click on your scanned document and select properties. It should tell you which file type it concerns, which is probably one the options i gave above. If it is an image. try opening the document with a picture viewingprogram such as paint, microsoft pictureviewer or any other picture viewing software. If it is adobe document, you should open it with adobe reader (free availav\ble on the web).

Nearly all version of Microsoft Office need to pay for the code to activate your downloaded office.
Microsoft Office Starter 2010 is a cut-down version of the package which displays ads, and only contains limited functions. But by way of compensation you can use it free of charge and without a code.
You can also try Kingsoft Office which does the same work as MS Office, and supports most MS file formats. The word processor in this suite can open, edit and save as(doc, docx and etc) files, and the similar MS interface to you.
I am sure your word processor, ie, MS Word has all these features. I am using the free Office suite Open Office available from www.openoffice.org. It has all these capabilities. You even have a fax wizard that guides you throughout. Also, it has facilities to insert scanned documents/pictures in your document.
I have been asking all to switch to Open Office from MS Office as OO is fully compatible with MS O. And it is free. No restrictions what so ever. You have it for MS Windows, Mac and all versions of Linux. Try it.
Here's a link from where you can buy and download MS Office 2010. Here is a link to the trial version. After download just run the installer to install MS Office suite, and follow the steps in the installer.
Alternatively, you can use Open Office, it's free and as good as MS Office.
If your are not very particular in using MS office there is a very easy answer. Forget this MS office thing. Download openoffice.org. Click the link below
It is absoultely free. And works way better than MS office in my opinion. You don't need to search around for a product key. However, it saves a doucment in .odt format instead of your regular .doc format. But there is no need for worry. If you need to send a file to anyone who can only read a .doc file open office provides you the option to save it in .doc format. Which solves the problem if any. Try it once an you may never think of MS office ever. Open office also gives you the option of saving a document directly into PDF format. So any one who recieves it cannot edit it, if you want uneditable documents to be sent to somebody. With MS office you need to buy a new software to achieve this. More money wasted.
Like wise XL/ presentations/database type documents are saved in the open document formats, but open office gives you the option to save all of these in the MS office default formats. It has much better selection of fonts and clipart/galleries too.Good luck and have fun.
If you have MS Word 2007, by default, the file extension is .docx and it can't be open by previous versions of MS Word unless conversion packs are installed. To make your scanned documents accessible to others, save it using .doc extension. You can do so by following these steps:
Click on file (round button) then Save As
Save your document with compatibility with Microsoft Office '97 to 2003.
The file extension will be .doc and you should be good to go.
It is absoultely free. And works way better than MS office in my opinion. Honestly,( MS will have to pay me to use it. Not the other way around.)

Openoffice can read anything that MS office can make. Openoffice can also save files in MS office's .doc format. So, if you are sending documents to people that don't have Openofice, and that need to edit the documents you should send them in .doc/.xls/etcetera. If they don't need to edit the document it's best to use .pdf since that guarantees that they will see the document as you intended.
Please can i ask that you leave feedback and vote if this has been useful
unfortunately the following is from MS Word 2007 Help:
The From Scanner or Camera option for scanning documents and pictures is not available in Microsoft Office Word 2007. Instead, you can use your scanner to scan the document, and then you can save the file to your computer.
After you scan the document, you can use Microsoft Office Document Imaging to create a version of the document that you can edit. Important The first step is to install Microsoft Office Document Imaging, which is not installed by default.
