Epson Rapid Receipt scanner, does it work with Quicken for Mac?

Has anyone tried to use a device called Epson Rapid receipt scanner RR-600w to input their receipts into Quicken for Mac? The Epson manual says that it works with Quicken, but my Q-Mac says "the 'cash account' can only import gif files into empty documents". That does not make any sense to me....
Any ideas on what to do?

    In Quicken Mac, the only way to add a receipt document is to drag an attachment file onto a transaction, or use the Add Attachment menu command for a selected transaction. I doubt the Epson software can interact with Quicken Mac to automate that. I think you'd have to use the scanner to bring the attachment to your Desktop or Documents folder, and then add it to your selected Quicken transaction.

    Thank you. I did the drag and drop into QM and it worked.
