[size=7] I am thinking of upgrading to Word 2003 if it will transcribe data uploaded from a digital pen into text. I know from the microsoft site that it will transcribe data from a tablet PC into text but I am not clear whether it will work for a digital pen.

[size=7][font=Arial]Hi
Thanks for the reply and the welcome.

I decided to go ahead and get the pen which I have tried out this afternoon. I am happy with the first results on the handwriting recognition. What I didn't realise though is that in Word 2000 the lines end as they did in the notebook and each paragrah is put in separate text boxes. I really want the text to fit the margins of the page and not be in text boxes. Have you any suggestions?
