Abstract

Disclosed is a method to read Document level data from TLEs (Tag Logical Element, a type of structured field) in an AFP* (Advanced Function Presentation) file and import that data into a table for use within Workflow processing. This method allows potentially different names for TLEs, different table formats and different length and validation requirements for the data fields. This method converts the common function of Indexing into something autonomic and easily adaptable. Code changes are not required to implement changes.
