    OCR with Lexmark X5470
    I've been using PC's since about 1990. My kids grew up on them. My daughter-in-law needed a Mac for school and got this one about 3 years ago. My son insists his next computer will be a Mac. With that in mind, I decided to try one out so my daughter-in-law lent this to me.

    The "Switchers Forum" is fantastic! I've learned a lot going through it the past few days. Thanks to everyone who contributed!

    On to my problem....

    I'm trying to scan using my Lexmark X5470. On my WinXP system I use FineReader, but it's not compatible with anything past Mac OS X 10.3. I need to scan documents into Excel. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks. I did find that before. It's already downloaded and installed.
    I guess I should have been a little more specific. I need a good OCR program that will let me put the data into Excel.

    This probably won't help you but I bought a Lexmark X4850 in January and on the install disc it includes Abbyy FineReader 5 SprintX which works fine under Leopard.

    I guess what I should have said is the install disk has Version 5 for Mac on it and Version 6 for Windows.

    Good luck
