Helpful Tricks and Fixes to Recognition project development

Auto add \ \ in a date format Ex. 06\09\2015 from a 8 digit field (Fuzzy Regular Expression)

This example places two \\ in the proper place so an Indexer will see the proper value and pass the proper AI value to the next step.

In Recognition the Template Field to Recognize looks like this!

Enter the Fuzzy Expression to fix the recognized text! and make sure you select the “Automatically fix value” checkbox

(([0-9]{2})/([0-9]{2})/([0-9]{4}))

The expression can be entered in the bottom right of the recognition project where the OCR Engine is specified.  Scroll to the last tab on the right.

In this example the OCR engine will add spaces becuae there are spaces on the for that was scanned so make sure you specifiy a custom OCR engine and  check the box to remove spaces automatically.

See how the field was automatically filled out correctly despite the value recognized!
