Columns in the Vendors data set

This data set contains information about the vendors and is used to detect the issuer of the invoice and to check vendor details against a database.

Note: If no information about the vendor is found in the data set, or if you are not using vendor 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. This is the result of detecting the vendor. It also serves to identify the vendor in an external information system. This field is not used for detecting the vendor on an invoice image.

Note: If the BusinessUnitId field is not used, the Id field is the unique key of the record in the data set.

BusinessUnitId Text, without normalization

Optional field. The identifier of the business unit of the company that received the invoice. This field is not used for detecting the vendor on an invoice image.

Note: If this field is specified, the Id field is not treated as unique and is deemed to be dependent on the BusinessUnitId field. The idea is that each business unit (BusinessUnitId) of a company has its own unique list of vendors (Id). The pair BusinessUnitId + Id is the unique key of the vendor's record in the data set.
