OCR Software??

I'm looking for some OCR software (preferably freeware) that recognizes separate columns. Anybody tried anything they'd recommend?

I see you got shiite for feedback here. The only experience I have with OCR is vendor-supplied stuff and usually in relation to a scanner, so no feedback. However, an org I volunteer with suspects they'll have to be looking into this soon since someone lost a disk so I'll let you know if we end up with something good and open source.

Well, we didn't go the OS route since we have an excellent deal on MS Office software. Here's what one of the support guys just wrote me.

I've got office basic 2007. I might have to see if it's part of that

A little digging, and I found it. Now, to put it to the test. Thanks for the tip, kanwisch
