Sample 4. Step 5: Document header and InvoiceHeader group

In the InvoiceHeader group, we will describe the elements that will help us identify the first page of the document.

  1. To find the keywords contained in the names of the Invoice Number, Delivery Address, and Invoice Date fields, create the following elements of type Static Text:

    • kwDeliveryAddress element. See Step 5.2 for detailed instructions.
    • kwInvoiceDate element. See Step 5.3 for detailed instructions.
