Specification of Amount fields

Use the amount type for fields on the invoice that contain a monetary amount.

Kofax ReadSoft Invoices handles amount fields in a special way when interpreting them and capturing the field value.

A predefined field format and format specification are used. That is why Type and Specification are disabled in the General settings of the field profile when you select Amount as your format type.

Kofax ReadSoft Invoices interprets the value in an amount field correctly even when the value is written in different ways, like this:






Kofax ReadSoft Invoices displays amount fields in Optimize and Verify, and transfers the field value, in a standard way regardless of how the value is written on the invoices. Values where the decimal 00 is missing on the invoice have 00 added. The thousands separator and decimal separator are standardized. This is controlled by settings in the [Interpret] sections of Eiglobal.ini and Eiglobalextra.ini.

Amount fields can have any number of decimal places between 0 and 7. Kofax ReadSoft Invoices displays the actual number of decimal places in Verify and Optimize. You can specify the number of decimal places for a field in Optimize. The number of decimal places to transfer for an amount field is set to 2 by default, but you can change this in the transaction description.
