Scanning Multi-Page Documents Such as Receipts

Multi-page documents such as receipts can be scanned with the ScanSnap and saved as a single scanned image.

When [Name files automatically] is specified in the [File naming rule] Screen, each page is saved separately as a scanned image.

For details about documents that can be scanned, refer to Documents That Can Be Loaded Directly into the ScanSnap.


In some cloud storage services, multi-page documents such as receipts cannot be saved as a single scanned image.

If this is the case, save each document as a separate scanned image.

For details about how to perform scanning, refer to Scanning Documents, Business Cards, or Receipts.

    Inserting the Document

    The document is pulled in until it is set inside the ScanSnap.

    • When you perform scanning with the output guide closed, leave enough space at the back of the ScanSnap to allow the document to be completely ejected.

      Make sure that the area where the document exits the scanner is clear of any obstacles. Otherwise, a paper jam may occur.

    • If you scan the following documents with the output guide open, a paper jam may occur and damage the documents. Scan the following documents with the output guide closed.

      • Thick paper (80 g/m2 [20 lb] or heavier)
