With Office 2010 is it possible to scan a document to your computer and then covert it to an Excel file?

You need OCR (optical character recognition) software, such as ABBYY FineReader.

That is an expensive one. I have purchased PDF Converter Pro 7. I hope that it will do the trick.

I use Adobe Acrobat (version IX)for OCR.

Here is the link for the latest version XI from Adobe with pricing information.

Good luck.
