The Configure image file source and destinations dialog

To access this dialog:

If you interpret image files, you need to indicate where the image files are located and how you want Kofax ReadSoft Invoices to process them.

  1. Using Manager, select Import invoice image files in the Source settings of the Interpret job description.
  2. Click Configure.
    Note If a file to be deleted or moved is write-protected or if the target folder contains a file with the same name as a file to be moved, an error message is displayed.
    Files of type The type of files to be imported.

    You can also specify a full file name or use the wild cards * and ? in accordance with Windows standards. For example, 6fb2*.tif causes Kofax ReadSoft Invoices to interpret all files with file names beginning with 6fb2 and ending with the extension .tif. Other files are not interpreted and therefore remain in the directory after interpretation.

    Advanced Displays Multi-image options and Import from subdirectories.
    Scanner description If the images are produced using Scan, and the scanner description you use is listed here, select the scanner description. This can improve the interpretation rate.

    Leave this box empty if you are not sure of the scanner description to use or if the image files were not produced using Scan.

    Image scanning DPI Use this setting when you leave Scanner description empty. If you know the DPI (dots per inch) setting that was used when scanning the invoice images, type it in this box. For example, type 200 for 200 DPI.

    This setting is used when an image file does not contain DPI information. TIFF files always contain DPI information. Other image file types can contain DPI information.

    If the image file does not contain DPI information and the value of Image scanning DPI is not correct, Interpret cannot capture the data.

    Always show configuration dialog Determines whether to display a dialog containing the current settings when you start the Interpret.
    Source directory The directory that contains the files to be interpreted. Click the open folder symbol to select the source directory.
    Move files
    Identified Where to save image files that have entered the system. Click the open folder symbol to select the destination folder. The default directory is the source directory plus \ident.
    temp The directory that Interpret will use for temporary files. The default directory is the source directory plus \temp.
    Error Where to move files that cannot be interpreted. The default directory is the source directory plus \error. Files that Kofax ReadSoft Invoices moves to this directory either do not have a supported format or are damaged.
    Log file
    Save log file Saves log files when you run the job. (This also enables the other settings in the group.)
    Log file name Click the browse button to specify a directory and file name for the log file. The default is the source directory plus \log. If the specified directory does not exist, the program creates it.

    Log files must not be saved directly to the directory indicated as the source of the invoices to be interpreted. If you try this, the program moves the log file to the \error directory and stops the job.

    If log exists Append – Appends a new log at the end of any existing log file with the specified name. You can see which session the log information is from because the job name, index, date, and time are written there.

    New name – If a file with the specified name already exists at the time the log is to be written, the user is prompted to specify a new file name.

    Overwrite – Any existing file with the specified name is overwritten by the new log file.

    Auto name – Uses the specified file name, but with a unique extension*, namely .mii, where:

    • m indicates the day of the month (1 to 9 for the first nine days of the month or A for 10, B for 11, C for 12, etc.).
    • ii is a two-digit index (01 to 99) that is incremented for each run.

    * Any extension you specify in the Log file name box is ignored.
