Define the company code input

Use the company code to modify the confidence levels in the list of vendor alternatives. Typically, medium and large enterprises have multiple company codes depending on their subsidiaries. Often the same vendor appears multiple times in a vendor database, once for each company code. The Database Locator finds multiple matches with identical confidence levels. The Vendor Locator distinguishes the company codes and uses the input from a Script Locator to evaluate the best alternative with a higher confidence level.

Use a Script Locator to extract the company code information.

You can define the company code input by following these steps:

  1. Open the locator properties.
  2. On the General tab, in the Company Code Detection group, select the appropriate Input Locator (Script Locator) in the list.
  3. Optionally, in the Formatter list for the field data, select a script formatter.
  4. Optionally, adjust the Minimum confidence required to use input locator results value. This value defines the confidence level for the best alternatives that are used for evaluation.

    The value for this option is set to 70% by default.

  5. Optionally, adjust the Add this confidence reward if the company code matches value.

    The value for this option is set to0by default.

  6. Optionally, adjust the Subtract this confidence penalty if the company code does not match value.

    The value for this option is set to 20% by default.

  7. Optionally, adjust the other locator settings.
  8. Open a test document and click Test to test your settings.
  9. Optionally, click Close to close the locator properties window.
  10. Save the changes to your project.
