Dear forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

Linear feet to Pages

The Government uses the term "linear feet" to talk about how much filing they have. Is there an accepted conversion of "linear feet" to pages. I'm trying to get an idea on the time it would take to copy and scan a bunch of files.

Thanks for your help.

I don't know about "accepted factor;" it will vary with paper weight.

When I buy 20 lb computer paper, 5000 sheets per box, it is two 9" stacks, so roughly 5000 sheets = 18".

(there are wrappers so that may be very slightly off)
