Creating a table

ABBYY FlexiCapture lets you create Document Definitions for documents containing tables. Creating Table fields can considerably simplify configuration, data extraction, and data export from tables. A Table field is a set of same-type columns and recurring lines.

Table columns can be of the following type:

  • text
  • checkmarks
  • barcodes
  • pictures

To create a table:

  1. Select the tool and frame the table region with a rectangle. The table header must not be included in the selected region. An additional table processing tool for deleting a separator will appear on the toolbar:
Delete Separator
  1. Mark off table cells by drawing the required number of separators. To create separators, click where the separator should be placed. To create vertical separators, place the cursor into the table area, press the Shift key and click once. To create a horizontal separator, perform the same operation holding down the Alt key. You can also detect separators automatically: select the created table and then select the items Autodetect Vertical Separators and Autodetect Horizontal Separators from the local menu.
  2. Create table columns. To create a column, click in the column region and select a column type from the drop-down list.
