I believe that Adobe Acrobat would be the only program that would allow you to save as a .pdf. You would need the full version, not just the reader. This would allow you to scan a document and then PRINT it to the Acrobat PDF Writer which converts it to .pdf. If you have a few documents that you need done I can convert them here at work and e-mail them back to you.

Adobe Acrobat does it. It is a different program than the free Adobe Reader that is available on millions of sites. I use it almost every day

If you’ve got a BestBuy nearby, look for a copy of OmniPage Pro 11, upgrade edition, for $99. You need to have some form of OCR software on your computer to begin with (and it sounds like you do). Read the package before buying. Here’s a link, but they don’t have it mailorder right now. [url]http://www.bestbuy.com/Software/Detail.asp?e=11077121&m=1023&Cat=1040[/url] This software will let you save scanned documents in many formats, including PDF, Word, and WordPerfect. (I’ve only used it for Word personally). For particulars on the software, see [url]http://www.scansoft.com/products/omnipage/pro/[/url] Full list price is almost $500. Edited to note that this generic upgrade is no longer available on ScanSoft's website. You still might be able to find it on somebody's shelves. The retail for the generic update was $150 - I think BestBuy has it mismarked (but I did get a copy from a local store for $99.)
