Converting Files into Sections
Once you have set the conversion options, click Next to go to the Convert Files and
Finish window. See Finishing a Conversion on page 490 for more information.
Field Name Offset
This field is only applicable if your extract file is not in XML format.
Here you can specify the offset at which the system can expect (or test for) a
particular value. You specify the value the system should test for in the Field
Name Value field. The default is 10.
Field Name Value
This field is applicable for both types of extract file.
If your extract file is not in XML format, the Field Name Value field lets you
specify the value to test for at the offset specified in the Field Name Offset field.
For example, if the Field Name Offset field contains 10 and the Field Name
Value field contains MYFIELD, the Data field in the XDD is set to 10,MYFIELD.
When Documaker processes this field, it looks at offset 10 in the record in the
extract file and tests for the string MYFIELD at that offset. If the test is
successful, Documaker goes to the offset specified in the Data Offset field and
copies the data at that offset into the field.
If your extract file is in XML format, the Field Name Value field lets you specify
the XPath to use to search for data for the field.
For example, if the Field Name Value field contains /MYFIELD, the Data field in
the XDD is set to /MYFIELD. When Documaker processes this field, it would use
this XPath (/MYFIELD) to locate data to copy into the field being processed.
This field is only applicable when your extract file is not in XML format.
Use this field to indicate the offset in the record in the extract file at which to
expect field data.
For example, if you enter 58 here, the Field Name Offset field contains 10, and
the Field Name Value field contains $FIELDNAME, during conversion, an XDD
record would be created whose Data portion contains 10,fieldname, where
fieldname is the actual field name (since the $FIELDNAME keyword parameter
was used) and the whose Offset portion contains 58.
Documaker would process the field named ADDRESS1 by reading the contents
of the XDD record for that field (ADDRESS1), then looking in the extract file at
offset 10 for the value ADDRESS1. If the string ADDRESS1 is found at offset
10, Documaker would look at offset 58 and copy the data at that offset to the
field on the section.
Use these boxes when you are performing a Documerge to Documaker conversion and you are using the
VRF2EXP utility to generate a Documaker extract file from a Documerge VRF file.
Adjust Field Name
Values for Block Tag
Check this box if you want the system to update the Data field in the XDD with
the field's root name (for example, ADDRESS) rather than with the unique field
name (ADDRESS #001_01) that Documaker uses. The extract file produced by
the VRF2EXP utility generates records that contain the root field name for the
field at offset 10, then multiple data values concatenated one after the other
beginning at offset 58.
Adjust Data Offset
Values for Block Tag
Check this box if you want the system to increment the Offset field in the XDD
to the next portion of the block tag's data.
