1) How are documents scanned and indexed?

Documents are indexed automatically as they are scanned or “dropped” into the ImageLink repository.

  • Documents are scanned from a workstation where Sage 100 ERP is active.
  • When a document is scanned, the contents of the fields of the Sage 100 ERP screen are used as index keys.
  • The automated indexing also applies to non-scanned documents that are dropped into ImageLink’s Drop Zone.
  • The index keys for a document are stored in the table “xIMIndex” within the Microsoft Dynamics SL application database.
