File to Image-Master - Formatting for Automatic Recognition
File to Image-Master uses a specially formatted comment block (using the WordPerfect Insert Comment feature) to identify the start of a document and the filing information that should be used when it is filed in Image-Master. In order for File to Image-Master to be able to distinguish the end of one document and the start of the next document, the File to Image-Master comment block must be placed somewhere on the first page of each document.
Comment Block Structure
The first line of the comment block must contain the text: "File to Image-Master" to identify the comment block as containing File to Image-Master commands and filing information.
Comment Block Example 1 (for use with the SAMPLE Database included with Image-Master)
NOTE: Collection-Master Users: See Comment Block Example 2 for an example that is appropriate for the CLS000 Database.
In this first example, the FDATE field value is not preceded by a literal slash. In this case, the FDATE field is an Image-Master date field that gets its actual value from an Image-Master internal function at the time the document is filed.
Comment Block Example 2 (for use with the Collection-Master (CLS000) Database included with Image-Master)
Merge to ImageMaster
The MTI-FLDS.FRM form document is a nestable WordPerfect form that contains a preconfigured template for merging with Collection-Master Databases. Place a WordPerfect NESTFORM(MTIFLDS.FRM) merge command in either LHEAD.60, in PLEADDAT.60, or in individual forms in the forms library as desired. WordPerfect comment blocks were chosen because they are saved with the document but do not print on paper, and they do not affect the formatting of the underlying forms.
NOTE: The MTI-FLDS.FRM uses Collection-Master field code #500 for the Document Description field. This field code is new and is supported in Collection-Master 6.0 and higher. Field code #500 exposes the document description defined under [1-7] in Collection-Master.
NOTE: The previous Comment Block example and the MTI-FLDS.FRM template is one approach for meeting the requirements for File to Image-Master. There are many other approaches that would achieve the same goals. In particular, the NESTFORM(MTI-FLDS.FRM) could be performed at the form level rather than the wrapper level, and MTIFLDS.FRM could be enhanced with conditionals using the extensive WordPerfect macro and merge language.
