I have a hard copy of a document and would like to get a file that I can read/write.Is this posible and what format would the file be?

you need a scanner and an optical character recognition software then the file can be saved as text or into your normal wordprocessor.

If you have a MFD priter/scanner/copier most of them come with OCR on disk. Mine will scan to Notepad, Word or ODF - dont do it to PDF or you wont be able to edit it easily.
