FlexiCapture for Invoices: the Field Extraction Training for "Total Amount" field is not working

Symptoms

Can not train the Total Amount field's extraction in FlexiCapture for Invoices.

Cause

By default, the training for Total and Amount fields is blocked. 

Resolution

To enable training for Total and Amounts section fields make the following change to the Windows Registry:

  1. Open the Windows Registry Editor (regedit).
  2. Open the following key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ABBYY\FlexiCapture\12.0\DAForms

  1. Add the following value:

UseTrainedInvoiceAmounts = true

 

You need to enable the registry key under every user that can possibly run recognition tasks: 

  • accounts that run Processing Station service (for scenarios with the background recognition, e.g. when files are going throw the workflow).
  • accounts that launch Project Setup Station/Verification Stations (for scenarios when a user re-recognizes documents on stations). 

E.g. if the Processing Station service is run under NETWORK SERVICE account, then the registry key needs to be created here:
HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-20\SOFTWARE\ABBYY\FlexiCapture\12.0\DAForms 

If it is the service account then you need it to be created for that specific user.

The server needs to be rebooted after adding registry keys.

    I did add the value UseTrainedInvoiceAmounts = true in the regedit but still couldn't get the trained data

    The steps I followed in Abby Flexicapture for Invoices
    1) First I created a training batch in the "Field Extraction Training Batch, then loaded the sample pdfs
    2) I showed the software where each of the fields are located for all samples, then click the train button and it showed successfully trained
    3)Then opened the working batch tried the sample but I didn't get the trained output.


    Could you pls check anything I missed?

    First of all, please restart the Processing Server and Station after Regedit key adding. In step 3 please clear previous analysis results and recognize the document from the scratch
