Transaction descriptions: Overview

A transaction is a package of data resulting from a processed invoice that Kofax ReadSoft Invoices transfers to another system after the invoice is processed. A transaction consists of one record.

A transaction description, which you create using Manager, is a template for the output data. It specifies:

  • Which data is transferred (usually not its actual contents), such as:
  • The format of the data:
    • Whether the data is text, digits or other characters
    • The length of each record
    • How data is justified and signed
  • The layout of the data:
    • Where the data appears in the record (in a new line?)
    • How the different data items are separated (by commas? tabs? not at all?)
Note Transaction descriptions are not used when you use XML output.
