The Currency field

Every invoice profile created using Kofax ReadSoft Invoices 5-4 or later contains a Currency field. (In invoice profiles created using an earlier version of Kofax ReadSoft Invoices, this field is handled a bit differently.)

Kofax ReadSoft Invoices uses this field to determine the currency of the invoice.

  • It looks for a three-letter abbreviation (such as USD, GBP, or EUR) or currency notation on the invoice. What it looks for is determined by your country profile.
  • If found, it sets the value of the Currency field to the three-letter abbreviation defined to signify that currency. Example.
Found on an invoice   Currency notation extracted   Abbreviation assigned to Currency field
$500.00 ð $ ð USD
€ 300,00 ð ð EUR
750.00SEK ð SEK ð SEK


  • In Verify, the Currency field is displayed along with other fields.

If the currency is not found, the invoice definition's currency is used. If there is no invoice definition, the invoice profile's currency is used. In either case, the Currency field is marked (Field status), so you know it needs your attention, and you can change to a different currency in Verify.


Note Future invoices that are verified using the same invoice profile—and where the position of the currency has not been learned in Optimize—will automatically use the currency you selected for the first invoice. The Currency field is then set to Complete.

In Verify you can adjust the value of the Currency field, if necessary.

The Currency field is different from other fields
