Exporting to XML

To export the processed documents to XML format, press the drop down arrow of Export button at the lower left corner of the program and choose XML. Once a format has been chosen its name will appear into the Export button.

Export settings for XML

Go to Tools->Settings->XML Export in order to set export settings.

Export mode: The user can either export all files into a single XML file (All files in single XML) or export each file from their session into a separate XML file (Separate XML for each document);

XML Export folder: The user can set where all exported XML files will be stored. Once this folder is set the software will remember it until it’s changed by the user.

XML Path Expression: The user can use different macros in order to name exported files after values assigned into fields and columns. This option is very useful for grouping files too. For example, the user can have a separate folder for each vendor, then group files by month inside that folder and use the invoice number for a file name. To achieve this, the Export Path Expression must be set as:


Date Format: Can be used to set what kind of date format to be used in the CSV, no matter of how it looks like on the invoice.

  • Don’t browse and use the default folder when exporting – When checked the software will never ask where to export the XML files to. It will always store them in the default location.
  • Remove exported documents from the current session – When checked all documents will be removed from the program’s interface. Please note that the original source files will not be deleted.
  • Validate documents before exit – Check if all validation rules are correct. If not, the software will not export the documents to XML format.
  • Add tag with all recognized text – Adds a tag in the XML which contains an unformatted text string with all the recognized text from the page/document.
  • Include archive file path - If checked this option will include an additional column with the archive file path for each document in the session view. Works only if the Archive feature is active.
