    I have several documents that are too long to fit onto my scanner. I
    would like to scan in two parts and then join them like panoramas are
    made from several overlapping photographs. Anyone know how to do this
    and what software is needed?

    Usually any 'picture' type software, often supplied with the scanner

    When I was a child, I remember my Mom telling me, "Son, when you grow
    up, you can marry any girl you please." When I became a young man, I
    learned the sad fact was that I could not please any of them.

    Been there, done that, been ripped by the K-Man ;o)

    Anyway, I know what the OP is talking about, although I've never tried it.
    One program I saw called it a "stitch" utility. But that was a long time
    ago.
