Transferring training results into another project

In ABBYY FlexiCapture for Invoices, you can re-use training results in multiple projects.

To be able to use your training results in another project, you need to import the training batches into that project.

A training batch is created for invoices issued by one particular vendor. For this reason, when importing training batches into a new project, it is important to match the training batches with their respective vendors in the Vendors data set of the new project.


Importing training batches into a new project

  1. Open a new project in the Project Setup Station of ABBYY FlexiCapture Distributed or the Administrator Station of ABBYY FlexiCapture Standalone.
  2. On the main menu, click Fields Training → Import Training Batches....
  3. Depending on how the training batches should be matched with their vendors, either select or clear the Preserve Variant ID option in the Import Training Batches dialog box.
  4. Specify the path to the project that contains the training batches to be imported.
  5. If the project from which the training batches are being imported (the old project) has more than one Document Definition, select the Document Definition from which you want to import training batches.
  6. If a project to which batches are being exported (the new project) has more than one Document Definition, select the Document Definition for which you want to import training batches.
    Note: After it has been imported, a training batch can be assigned to a Document Definition manually. To do this, right-click the training batch and click Change Document Definition... on the shortcut menu. You can also change the vendor of a training batch by clicking Change Vendor... on the shortcut menu.

As a result, the training batches will be imported into the new project, together with

  • the FlexiLayout variants, which are the result of training
  • the sample images on which the program was trained. You will be able to do some additional training of imported FlexiLayout variants by adding new invoice images to those imported into the new project.

Note: If you attempt to import a training batch for a vendor for a which a training batch already exists in the new project, the program will select the best training batch: the documents in each batch will be matched with the trained FlexiLayout variant from the given batch and the batch with the greater number of correctly detected fields will win.
