Add a database search mask

A database search mask defines which database fields are expected to be found on a document. A Database Locator can have one or more search masks, each defining a possible combination of field data found on a document.

You can add a database search mask by following these steps:

  1. Open the locator properties.
  2. Click the Search Masks tab.
  3. Click Add.

    A search mask is added to the list, with each field selected.

  4. Clear any fields to exclude from the search mask.
  5. Optionally, select All fields mandatory if you expect each field in the selected search mask on a document.
  6. Optionally, repeat the previous steps and add search masks as required.
  7. Open a test document and click Test to test your settings.
  8. Optionally, click Close to close the locator properties window.
  9. Save the changes to your project.
