The Administration Module
Kofax Capture Administrator's Guide
If you are using the Standard option, your user tracking data is stored in several database
tables. You may access these tables using the
file that Kofax Capture creates
during installation. The
file does not actually contain any data. Instead, it contains
pre-defined links to tables stored in the Kofax Capture system database.
You can use Microsoft Access or any number of other compatible reporting applications to
view the user tracking data.
Regardless of the location of
, you must open it from the workstation with the
Kofax Capture installation. If you attempt to open it from another workstation you will
receive an error, or if there is another Kofax Capture installation on the other workstation,
will point to the data on that workstation.
If you upgraded to Kofax Capture from an earlier version, any merged statistics data from
your prior export is carried over to the new version. However, any macros or queries that
may have had in
will not be brought over.
If you wish to recover such items, you can locate them in
in the appropriate
archive folder corresponding to their old export. For example, this is usually a subfolder in
the Kofax Capture server files folder with a name similar to
to the version number of your previous installation.
, when opened with Access, has a custom menu selection, “Statistics”, with a
Delete item. The Delete menu item allows you to delete accumulated statistics from the
database. You should periodically delete the statistics data. The total size of all statistics,
administration, and batch catalog information is limited to 2GB. This is a large limit, but could
be exceeded over a long period of time on a heavily used system.
You may delete statistics from the database directly from
, as described above,
but you may also delete them through the Report Viewer. The Report Viewer lets you decide
which statistics to delete. When editing
directly, you cannot select which statistics
to delete; instead, all statistics records is deleted. Additionally when editing
utilities are provided to selectively backup or copy specific statistics. If you want to do this,
you must implement such capabilities yourself.
Note Kofax suggests that you archive these records to a safe location prior to deleting them.
Other Database Options
If you are using the SQL Server, Oracle, or IBM DB2 database option, your user tracking data
is stored in tables in your selected database.
If you elect to use Kofax Capture with any of the above mentioned databases, you should be
familiar with that database system and how to access it from your client tools. If necessary,
contact your system administrator for details.
The user tracking statistics are stored in the server and database you specified when
switching to or setting up your database (SQL Server, Oracle, or IBM DB2) for use with Kofax
Capture. The structures for these tables are identical to those used with the standard Kofax
Capture database. To delete unwanted statistics records, create your own SQL statements or
execute the predefined stored procedure called “ClearStats”.
Note When using SQL Server, Oracle, or IBM DB2, the Kofax-provided Access interface is not
