The "squiggle" is a tilde. This along with the $ indicates it's a temporary file, not meant to be opened with a word processor. You need to find the original file which does not have these symbols at the front. You computer will open files based on the extension (e.g. the .doc, .xls, etc) at the end.
To force these files to open, you might try renaming them to take out the symbols.

Which is the best PDF converter?


In word you when you go to save the document go to File>Save As and you should be able to save in .pdf format. Another option which many of the users I have worked with use a free version of CutePDF writer. This software acts as a printer so you open the document you wish to convert. Click Print, and select Cute PDF as the printer. It will then ask you where you would like to save the document and Boom! There is your PDF!

How to convert older Office documents to Office 2007 format


<span> <p><span>The Office 2007 applications such as Word and Excel can open a spreadsheet or a document which is in an older edition of Office. They can open such older version documents in Compatibility Mode. However, if you need to make use of various newer features available in Office 2007, you will have to convert older Office documents to Office 2007 format. The feature to covert older Office documents to Office 2007 format is very useful. For example, you can now utilize 1.1 million rows in the 2007 version of Excel. In the older versions you could only use sixty-five thousand rows. The method to convert older Office documents to Office 2007 format is the same for all applications. Here we are using the example of a Word document of previous version.

I scanned to pdf but how do I get document to my document file?


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.

How do I add text to a scanned document?


Hello,

Below instruction might be helpful to you.

With the PDF document open in Acrobat 7 Standard or Professional, choose File > Save As. In the Save As dialog box, choose Microsoft Word Document from the Format (Mac) or Type (Windows) pop-up menu. Then simply click the Save button, and open the document in Word for editing. The conversion may not be perfect, depending on factors such as the complexity of the layout, and whether you have the document's fonts on your system. For simple business documents, Acrobat's Save As command does a decent job of converting to Word.

Thank you.
