Scanning and data import question

Hi. I have a number of records from conferences and meetings that are essentially in a mailing label format. There are about 20 of these individual address blocks per page. I want to be able to scan them and then map them into the ACT db. I haven't found a simple way to map these address blocks into a one line listing for a csv import. Are there any suggestions out there for how to do this?


This is a terrific forum. Thank you for considering my question.


Very best regards,

Re: Scanning and data import question

I would suggest that you scan the sheets with a conventional flat bed scanner and and then one of the egrabber range of products might do the job.
