My granddaughter wishes to scan in a copy of a piece of work she has done into work she has prepared in Microsoft Office 2007. However, when scanned in & pasted she is unable to alter or adjust the work scanned in. Is there anyway of getting over this? I run Vista Home Premium. Thank you Kind regards

is that your granddaughter's scanner simply photocopies the original and creates a graphic file. The work becomes an image as far as Microsoft Office is concerned.

Is the original work created on a computer?

In the software that comes with the scanner you should have a "scan as text" option. Not "scan as image" as FE has pointed out.
