Abstract

Disclosed is a method for providing subsequent rework iterations in support of balancing of financial items using document images and images of supporting assist data. Output from balancing all iterations can be added together to provide an accurate representation of the final result. The method described following allows the users to make the same type of corrections and adjustments through all balancing iterations using the original set of related images.

Balancing Rework

      Disclosed is a method for providing subsequent rework
iterations in support of balancing of financial items using document
images and images of supporting assist data.  Output from balancing
all iterations can be added together to provide an accurate
representation of the final result.  The method described following
allows the users to make the same type of corrections and adjustments
through all balancing iterations using the original set of related
images.

The following adjustment types are supported for all balancing
iterations within the product:
  o  Insert
  o  Change
  o  Delete
  o  Move

      For the first iteration, the adjustments for each item are
merged with the input items and output along with the items as a
complete string.  For subsequent rework iterations, adjustments made
to each item are converted during the output process to one or more
balancing insert adjustments, which represent the net change to the
item during that iteration.  Only these net insert adjustments are
output during rework iterations.

      The items, adjustments, and retrieval keys for all images are
preserved such that the user sees no difference in the balancing
process from one iteration to the next.  The user will have access to
the same document images and assist images regardless of the
balancing iteration.

      The underpinning of this technique is the conversion of the
change, delete, and move adjustment types to insert adjustments
