A PDF file can be placed in any folder on your computer and opened with a PDF viewer like Adobe Reader. You can convert a PDF to a document (DOC) file but you cannot open a PDF file with a document editor like Microsoft Word. You may want to scan your document as an image file like TIFF or JPG then use the Insert Picture function to get it into a DOC file. I hope this helps.
You are going to want to find any OCR software that works for your printer. OCR is 'Optical Character Recognition'. It will take the scan and convert it into a text document, which is either already compatible for MS Word, or easily converted itself.
I was trying to figure out how to scan multi-page documents to a single file and found this on the Brother website:
Double-click on the ControlCenter3 icon located in the Task Tray to launch the program window.
Click on CONFIGURATION -> SCAN.
Choose the type of scan you require. The choices are: IMAGE, E-MAIL, and FILE.
The Scan to configuration window will appear.
The SOFTWARE BUTTON tab configures the Scan to button within theControlCenter3 software interface. The DEVICE BUTTON tab configures the Scan to key on the Brother machine. Choose the tab you want to configure.
Under FILE TYPE select an option that allows multi-page documents:
a) PDF (*.PDF) b) Tiff Multi-Page # Uncompressed (*.tif) c) Tiff Multi-Page # Compressed (*.tif)
