    What application do you use to scan the document? What Mac OS X and Microsoft Word version do you use?

    Not sure, but it may depend on the software you use to scan. I have a Lexmark printer/scanner in my classroom and it opened a document in Word once I scanned it.

    Even if you can't open in word, can't you place the image in the header as a permanent letterhead?

    From your description, it is hard to determine what you are actually trying to do

    However, as suggested above, depending on what the scan actually IS... I would scan it as a graphic, open in Preview and crop it, and then place it in a Word doc as the header and then save it as a template.
