Default Inserting different pages in word document

I scanned 75 pages into Paperport and saved these pages as pdf files. I converted the pdf files into Word files. As I am looking at the different pages in word , I see that many pages didn't come out good and I need to rescan about 15 pages and would like to insert them in the numerical sequence so when I save them as doc files, I can read them on my laptop.

Please tell me how I can remove individual pages and insert the correct page to finish up this project.

I don't know how to do this in Word (I've never used it), but if you use Acrobat, you can just use the Document/Pages/Replace command. Did you use Acrobat to convert the pages to Word? If so, and if you kept the Acrobat pdf version, the Replace command will do the trick. Open the "old" pdf version, then select Replace, and navigate to the "new" pages you wish to insert. Follow the steps in the Replace dialog.

You can't, exactly. Word doesn't "think" in pages; text simply flows from page to page.

But you could convert the new scans to Word then select and copy/paste the text from the new documents into the original one. If you select the same text in the original doc before pasting, the newly pasted text will simply replace it.

How did you do the conversion? Using something that did OCR on the scans and recreated the layout in Word, or just dropped scanned images in each page? And why do you want Word files rather than PDFs? Hard to advise unless we know.

If you have ended up with a set of Word documents each with a scan rather than text in them - that is rather less useful than a single PDF file for most applications, I would think. Word files including bitmaps are much bigger than the corresponding PDFs in most circumstances
