Columns in the BusinessUnits data set

This data set contains information about business units. It is used to automatically detect the business unit (i.e. the division of the company that received the invoice) and check information about the business unit against a database.

Note: If no information about the business unit is found in the data set, or if you are not using business unit databases, ABBYY FlexiCapture will use neural networks for field detection, unless neural networks are disabled in the program settings. For more information, see Detecting the main fields.

Name Type Description
Id Text, without normalization Required field. The program selects values from these fields when determining the Business Unit and identifier in an external database. Ids are not used for finding the business unit on the image. Unique key of the entry in the data set.
VATID Text, normalization: Alphanumeric code Optional field. The unique identifier assigned to a company for tax purposes. This field is used to detect business units on images and greatly affects detection.
Name Text, normalization: Text Optional field. The name of the business unit. This field is used to detect business units on images.
ZIP Text, normalization: Alphanumeric code Optional field. Part of the address of the business unit. This field is used to detect business units on images.
Street Text, normalization: Text Optional field. Part of the address of the business unit. This field is used to detect business units on images.
City Text, normalization: Text Optional field. Part of the address of the business unit. This field is used to detect business units on images.
State Text, without normalization Optional field. The state component of the business unit's address. This field is not used for detecting the business unit on the invoice image, it is displayed to the Operator during verification.
CountryCode Text, normalization: Alphanumeric code

Required field. Part of the address of the business unit. Used to find the business unit on the image.

Note: The program does not use the CountryCode when searching for the business unit. CountryCodes are ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 two-letter codes. This field is required because the program uses the country of the business unit to determine the way the FlexiLayout is applied to invoices and the way fields are checked.
