Index File Sub-Tab

The following table provides a description of the fields in the Capture > Index File sub-tab.

Field Description
File Name If the indexes are contained in an external text file, then this field specifies the name of the text file. Note, a location is not required as the lifecycle will look for the index file in the Address field specified in the Source sub-tab.
Row Format Determines the format of the index file. To map the index values to the cabinet indexes, enclose the cabinet index in {…}. For example, if the text file contains three values separated by a comma. The first value needs to be mapped to the cabinet index called Invoice No, the second to Invoice Date, and the third specified the pointer to the associated file. The row format would be:
{Invoice No}.{Invoice Date},{ofdocname}
Key Name This is used for file capture that is driven from the content and the index values are contained in an external text file. This Key Name is the fields that is used to retrieve the index values. A typical Key Name field is the file name ({odocname}, or {ofdocname}).
Validate If selected, then the file is pre-validated to confirm that all the files references in the index file exist.
