Applicable Ephesoft versions: 4.1 onwards

When you extract a field of checkboxes, you end up with a result of OOOXO or similar. Using this method, you can change that to anything you want without the need for a script.

More Info:

In 4.1, we introduced Format Conversion (more info). Using the replace function here, we can figure out what RecoStar will provide us and what we want to change it to.

For example, if I have a document with 5 checkboxes, numbered 1 to 5, the possible results that RecoStar would give if only 1 box was checked are as follows:

 

Result Checkbox ID
XOOOO 1
OXOOO 2
OOXOO 3
OOOXO 4
OOOOX 5

We can then open Ephesoft, go into the Index field, down to Format conversion and use the following settings:

FormatConversion

 

You will also have to go into the Modules and add the Format Conversion plugin to Automated Validation.

 

When we get to Validation, rather than having OOOXO we would have a 4 in the field.
