Text to XML Reference

By using the Text to XML pre-processing feature, text can be “parsed” into XML for subsequent processing. This is especially useful when source data spans multiple pages. After conversion, the page structure is left behind so that the final output can include more or less pages than the source. The Text to XML conversion occurs when the Text to XML preprocessor is configured for a form template. The configuration includes a set of rules and definitions for locating, extracting and naming data elements from the original print output. It uses a collection of Lines, Parameters, States and EndStates to define how the source data is parsed into the XML output.
