How to alter text in a Bitmap Image

I have Win XP Home.I have been given a printed sheet containing quiz questions and consists of a flower border with text in the centre and I assume has been compiled using Paint.I have scanned the document to my hard drive and the icon shows a Bitmap Image with a paintbrush icon.I wish to change some of the text and re-save.I haven`t a clue how to do this so any advice would be most welcome.

To be able to edit the text you would need to put this through an OCR. The second alternative, and possibly quicker, is to forget the border and just retype the questions (and alter them as you want) in a word processor!

It's most likely been created using word, you can start afresh and knock one together yourself, including flower border.

Would it look similar to click here ???

Looks like an ms publisher file to me.

Yes!it does look similar to the `click here` bit from De Marcus but will do as pj123 suggests and type it out in a Word document to save the aggro.
Thank you all for your ideas.

If you want to, you can add the border in word, it's all I did in my 'click here'. Very easy to do.
