Thanks for the welcome. I already have an OCR package, but the proofing/reformatting necessary for a 2,500-page file is unacceptably time-consuming. The scan-to-pdf, clearly, is producing a graphic file, because in addition to being unusable for text-search, Adobe 5 cannot convert one of these files to rtf. Sure hope something can be done to solve this or I may just break down and sob.
Thanks again for the help and good wishes.
