Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Edit Help?

Ok I have some documents on a 3.5 floppy that I need to edit for work. Now I need to edit some dates and whatnot. The files are in Adobe Acrobat 7.0 and I have no clue how to edit them. I have tried to use PhotoShop 7.0, but I dont how to add text. Can someone tell me how to go about doing this? I need bring this in on Monday and help would be great. Thanks in advance Matt

Do you have access to Acrobat 7.0 or just Acrobat Reader?

Do you have Adobe Acrobat? Not Acrobat Reader, but the full version? I don;t know of anything else that will allow you read and then edit Acrobat files

Adobe 7 Professional what? Adobe makes many programs, the only one you can edit your PDF files with is Acrobat, not Photoshop, not Pagemaker, not Premier, just Acrobat.

I still cant seem to figure this out. I went into Adobe Acrobat 7.0, used the OCR feature, and I still cant change the text. I can get as far as adding notes, but I cant actually change the text over. Now I have changed the file formats to tiff, JPEG, BIP, Word, and still no luck

Im using OCR, because Im pretty sure iti s just an imagine and Adobe cant read it, so I used the OCR to convert it. Now since I used the OCR I can Highly text, where as before I couldnt even do that, but I still cant change the dates I need to. Should I not use OCR?

OCR is Optical Character Recognition. It is used to scan a text document and make it editable, you should not be using it. If you in fact have an actual pdf document, you should have no trouble just opening it and editing.

That is where I think the problem maybe, because the files were scanned to a floppy at Staples and it seems like they are just photos as opposed to a real deal document. How could I tell it is just a photo scan or a real document, what do and where should I look? By the way thank you guys for all help, I I greatly appreciate it

Check the document properties. PDF files can be locked or have other security features enabled. I have an older version of Acrobat; in it I would go File > Document Security, and click Display Settings. I'm not sure if the path would be the same in version 7, you might have to look in Help to find it.
