Editing invoice processing settings in XML files

Invoice processing settings can be exported to an XML file, edited, and imported back into the program, or used in another project.

Contents of an XML configuration file

An XML configuration file contains:

  • Keywords and other language- and country-specific settings enclosed in the following tags:
    <Countries><Country></Countries> and <Languages> <Language></Languages>
  • Regular expressions for order numbers enclosed in the following tags:
    <OrderNumber><Value><RegularExpression></RegularExpression></Value></OrderNumber>;
  • A list of additional Document Definition features for processing invoices (see Additional fields and Enabling additional program features for Operators for details) and their status (enabled/disabled) in the AdditionalFeatures tag.
  • A list of invoice recognition languages in the PrimaryLanguages tag.
  • Settings for the invoice status additional feature (see The status of documents in ABBYY FlexiCapture for Invoices projects for details) in the DocumentStatus tag.

How to save current settings to an XML file

  1. In the Document Definition Editor, click Document Definition Properties... on the Document Definition menu.
  2. Click the Document Definition Settings tab.
  3. Click the Export Settings... button.
  4. Save the file.

The resulting file can be edited in a text editor.

How to import settings from an XML configuration file

  1. In the Document Definition Editor, click Document Definition Properties... on the Document Definition menu.
  2. Click the Document Definition Settings tab.
  3. Click the Export Settings... button.
  4. Open the file with invoice settings.

Important! If an XML file contains an error in a tag, contains an invalid value, or has an incorrect structure, a notification containing the number of the line with the error will be displayed when you import settings from this file. Any unknown file sections or parameters will be ignored.
