    FInd Feature with scanned documents

    camc11

      Hope someone can help. I have some documents that I am trying to scan so I can find specific numbers on the documents. I am scanning using a CanoSacan Lide 100 and it is capable of scanning in OCR and PDF files. Once the documents are scanned and I open up Adobe reader, the find feature cannot find the numerical text I am trying to locate. I have read that the find feature does not work on scanned images so how can I get this to work? Funny thing, when I scanned my test document, saved it and used the find feature the first time it worked - now I am having no luck.

       

      Also, I came across a document referring to Adobe Acrobat 5 and picture capture. Does Adode reader have this feature - can't seem to find it.

      Thanks for any help you give me.
