Configure a keyword or phrase to match exactly

If you select this option, at least one word in the phrase must exactly match words on the document.

The confidence level of an alternative is linked to how many words in a phrase the search matches. For example, the phrase "customer order number" is added with a weight of 100. When extraction runs, it finds "customer number" on a document. Since this is not the exact keyword phrase, extraction assigns the phrase a lower level of confidence by approximately a third.

The following example shows how the confidence level of a keyword is calculated. If the keyword is not found, a confidence level of zero is applied. If part of the phrase is found, a percentage of the total available confidence level is applied.
