Bulk Document Exporter: Class II - Resurgent Document Request

Class II exporters are custom modules written for specific customers and specific Image-Master database layouts, and have limited error recovery and reporting. They are documented, but any use outside the original intended purpose is at the sole risk of the user. Most Class II exporters can be found in the Import/Export Module.

The Resurgent Document Request exporter generates PDF files conforming to the Resurgent Media Requirements. This exporter requires a specifically structured query file and a fixed match expression. Each matching document and the static match expression is exported to a PDF file as JDG_FWREFNO_JMTDATE.PDF

  1. Open the Import/Export Module.

  2. Select the desired Image-Master database.

  3. Select the Resurgent Doc Request bulk document export option.


Select Query File: Click to select the query file to use for determining the files that will be queried for matching documents to be exported.

Query File Layout:

TAB delimited text file contains three fields per record.

Field 1: ForwarderFileNumber Character 20 characters max.

Field 2: ForwarderReferenceNumber Character 10 characters max.

Field 3: Judgment Date (mm/dd/yyyy) Character 10 characters max.

Document Filter Expression: Click to open the expression builder. Construct a match expression that will be evaluated for each document filed under the respective Forwarder File Number specified in the query file. Only documents from each Forwarder File Number that match the match expression will be exported.

Select Output Folder: Click to change the output folder that will contain the exported documents. The default is the Export folder inside the Image-Master network folder.

Output Document File Format: Choose from TIF or PDF. the default is PDF.

Output: Documents are each exported to individual PDF files named by the Resurgent Document Export Specification: JDG_forwarderref#_yyyymmdd.PDF

forwarderref# is the Forwarder Reference Number from the Query File.

yyyymmdd is the year, month, day derived from the Judgment Date field in the Query File.

NOTE: If more than one distinct document in Image-Master shares this common criteria, the documents will be appended into a single file in the order they were entered in Image-Master.

A processing log file is also created or appended if it already exists. The log file is named the same as the QueryFile, with a file extension of .LOG. It is a text file that can be inspected to view detailed information regarding the processing of individual records.
