All the receipts have the same layout (i.e. their order list, transaction dates). I was wondering if my OCR program (Omnipage 17) could go to a certain co-ordinate and recognize the data, then some how produce a csv, or even better an excel file?

Anyone have ideas on how to get these done? I have about 900 receipts (don't ask how I scanned them :D) and I want a quick method on how to do this.

Mac: I don't know if you can get the Windows version without also buying a scanner. There was a company similar to this who seemed to lean more towards the Windows side, but I haven't been able to find/remember them.

Yes, they have a windows version: Unfortunately, on the Windows version, you can't buy the software by itself. You have to buy one of their scanners with it. Stupid policy. – BBlake Dec 9 '10 at 13:26
