Field Value Extraction

Field Value Extraction can be used on PDF and text documents to extract the values from the selected text.

When Field Value Extraction is used on image files, OCR is used to extract the values from the defined region. OCR can be used on the following image formats:

  • BMP
  • JPG
  • PNG
  • TIF

Note: OCR is more accurate on high-quality graphics which have not been converted from another format.

Extract Field Values

Select Extract Field Values (the button is highlighted) if you want to use the mouse pointer to define a region of the page from which the selected field value will be extracted. When Show Extraction Options is also selected, the button Automatically Extract Field values is selected (the button is highlighted).

With Extract Field Values selected, select the field you want to obtain the Index Value for. Use the mouse pointer to select the text in either a text or PDF document. Alternatively, to use OCR, select a region around the text in an image. OCR is used to extract the text and put it in the selected Index Field.

Select a different Index Field and a new region of the document to extract another value and add it to a different Index Field.

Show Extraction Options

Select Show Extraction Options (the button is highlighted) to display the Automatically Extract Field Values button below the Index Fields pane.
