I have a canon 9900F acanner and the scanning tools software with it can be
set to scan directly to various programs. I want to set it to scan directly
to OneNote

Many scanners have a "copier" utility or an option to scan directly to
the printer. Simply set the OneNote printer as the printer for this
utility or feature. Keep in mind that this will simply insert a picture
of the page just like any other time you print to OneNote. You can not
select or rearrange anything on that "page" because it is just a picture
of a page. If you are scanning text then you might be better off to use
the OCR software that comes with most scanners and copy and paste the
recognized text from the OCR software into OneNote. It may not look
exactly like the original document but it will be more useful in the end
and it won't consume so darn much hard drive space.

A hint: If you use the OneNote printer, then you can copy the text from the
image easily. Once the page/pages are in OneNote, right click them and
select either "Copy text from this page of the printout" or "Copy text from
all pages of the printout" - Paste on a new page and you have the OCRed
content. IMHO, the results are better than most of the OCR software that
comes with scanners anyway.
