Word 97 and scanner

#1
I have a P4 2.4GHz laptop running XP Pro and Word 97. I also have a Canon 1220U USB scanner.

Everything seems to be running correctly (I shouldn't say that and tempt providence, should I?) except for one annoying omission.

The scanner works fine through its own software and through programs such as PSP and Photoshop. Word works fine except that it does not see the scanner. When I try to Insert a picture the scanner is not there.

How do I get Word to "see" the scanner and allow me directly to import a scan?

I have solved the problem. After several hours searching MS data base I hit on the correct search string and was informed that I needed to add MS Photo Editor to MS Office.

Everything OK now.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
