Rocky, would MS Word convert the copy and paste, or the document itself, into a basic html file? A conversion is necessary, correct? Both Libre and Open Office Suites can do that also, if I understand the OP desires correctly.

No, Word does not convert directly to HTML. I might have misunderstood the OP. I thought as a simple copy and paste question, that the OP might have a word document that just needed to be copied to something like a forum page or some other kind of simple copy and paste page.

I have Word 2013. I believe the problem lies in PaperPort, which I'm going through the instructions step by step. Just haven't found a solution. At 1 point (don't remember where) it appeared to me PP thinks the doc is a pic even though the doc itself shows it's pdf.
Anyway I can post a screen shot here?

Can you re-scan the document and save it as a Word document? PDF files are notoriously hard to edit and convert. Yes, post a screen shot on this thread, it will help everybody.

Rocky, I tried your suggestion but when go to scan I only have 4 choices. They are TIF (TIF File); BMP (BMP File); JPG (HP connected photos) and PNG (PNG image). I have tried all 4 with the same ^&%$&^%$ results.
I have 2 screen shots I would like to post but, to support the theory that my technical skills are very poor, I can't figure how to post the shots. Any help?

I have a Canon scanner, an old Canoscan 8800F. I think that your choices pretty much describe what mine are. I am using Office 2016 which allows me to open a PDF in Word and edit, I can't remember how the old Microsoft Office editions worked. I just upgraded from Office 2010 Professional which I could use to import a PDF into publisher and edit. I don't know much more than that.

I'm sorry for the quick turn around on my post. I just opened up a PDF on my computer and edited it real quick and saved it as a word doc. I clicked on the PDF, an Intel whitepaper about 22nm Haswell technology, and I right clicked on the file, dropped down to open with Word, opened up the file, enabled editing on the top of the page, and added a few words then closed. I saved it as an experiement to keep the original intact. I re-opened it as a word doc. and checked to see if the words that I enetered were there, and sure enough they were there. I deleted the word doc. of the Intel paper. Which edition of Word are you using, and do you have Publisher?
