If you have Adobe Acrobat Pro (available as a free download from http://www.techspot.com/downloads/46...at-8-free.html - note the serial# mentioned there), you can use it to both OCR and save the file to Word. The resulting Word file may still have the page images, but it's a simple matter to use a macro to delete them (though if you have graphics you want to keep, that may not be such a good idea for the pages concerned), leaving behind the text - probably not in frames. In any event, once OCRd by Acrobat, the text and graphics (some cropping may be needed) can be copied/pasted into Word.
