Field type

Field types contain basic characteristics that describe a particular kind of field. Some example field types include TotalAmount and InvoiceDate.

The settings of the field types vary by country profile. Advanced users can configure them in Eiglobalextra.ini, where they are listed by their global names.

Kofax ReadSoft Invoices comes with nearly ninety system field types that cover most kinds of invoices. They make business logic possible. You can edit them or add your own field types.

Field types form the basis for field profiles: Each field profile must be associated with a field type.
