Data Format Information

This is explanatory article on Data Formation Information.

Data Format Information is the area of Management Studio where you can view the document types supported by DataStore®DSX (for example: PDF, Plain text, MS Word, MS Excel, JPEG, PNG and GIF) their Mime* type and whether Page Specific support and Page Manipulation support is available along with support for Style Sheets which can modify content. It is also the area where you can view assigned default Style Sheets.

Note: *Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (Mime) is an Internet standard that extends the format of e-mail to support:

Text in character sets other than ASCII 
Non-text attachments 
Message bodies with multiple parts 
Header information in non-ASCII character sets

  1. In the tree view, expand Configuration Options and select Data Format Information.
  2. All supported document types are displayed in the Data Format Information Options table along with the support that's available.
    • Data Format Information – Shows the application name or the file extension defining the file type.
    • Mime Type – Shows the Mime type – for example, text, image or application followed by more information about the entry.
    • Last Modified – Shows the last time the format information for the selected entry was modified. This is often the installation date of the application.
    • Supports Page Specific Yes indicates the format can support multiple pages.
    • Supports Page Manipulation Yes indicates the pages can be manipulated (merged together, reordered, individually deleted, etc.) from within Indexing Studio (such as TIFF and PDF files). If you have a text document in Indexing Studio, you can see its pages, apply index values to them, but not move them around. A TIFF image, however, can have its pages dragged and dropped.
    • Style Sheets Can Modify Content Yes indicates that when a Style Sheet is configured, it can change the look of the actual data itself. For example, if the Style Sheets changes the font of a text page to be very large, the actual data looks different. However, if you do this for an archived TIFF, the image does not change.
    • Default Style Sheet – When a Style Sheet is configured, all files of the selected file type which are imported into Indexing Studio have that Style Sheet applied as default. However, if the Data Definition has one or more Style Sheets associated with it, then one of those Style Sheets will be used according to the Style Sheet configuration in the Data Definition.
      • To configure a Style Sheet, select one from the drop-down list.
      • To clear a Style Sheet, select the first (blank) entry at the top of the drop-down list.
