Active validation is a way of enhancing field validation. To use it, select Active validation in the Table validation settings of the Field profile dialog when you specify a validation table.
If there is an interpretation error, and Active validation is selected, Kofax ReadSoft Invoices finds the closest match in the table based on the characters it could identify. That item is then applied to the field, and the interpretation error is removed automatically.
The table contains a list of car manufacturers, and the result of the interpretation for the field is Vo*vo. Kofax ReadSoft Invoices finds Volvo in the table and applies it to the field.
If there is no interpretation error, but the result of the interpretation is not found in the table, Kofax ReadSoft Invoices finds the best match in the table and, if it is similar enough, applies it to the field.
The result of the interpretation for the field is Volmo. Kofax ReadSoft Invoices again finds Volvo in the table and applies it to the field.
If both of these scenarios occur, Kofax ReadSoft Invoices automatically makes corrections based on the table, improving the interpretation of the field.
The result of the interpretation for the field is Vo*mo. Kofax ReadSoft Invoices still finds Volvo in the table and applies it to the field.
If active validation is selected:
- Kofax ReadSoft Invoices does not try to compress extra spaces in the interpreted data.
- The interpretation of characters is not case sensitive.
- Active validation is applied directly after a field is interpreted, and only to fields that have a fixed position and that are learned.
