- You want to manually type data for this field when it is filled in.
- You want to set the value of the field externally using an event handler.
No interpretation means that Interpret will not look for the field. In the other modules, the field is shown and you can work with it as follows:
|Optimize||You can change the field format and specification. You can set the field to Inactive or Optional.|
|Verify||You can type a value for the field.|
|Transfer||You can transfer the field value.|
This setting also is useful when you want to set the value of the field externally using an event handler.
Example of setting the field value in an external program
If invoices contain a sales tax field, you can use an external program to calculate the sales tax and insert it in the field value. Use the No interpretation setting for this field in the field profile.
You must specify the format and specification of the field even if you select No interpretation, because Transfer needs this information.
