Field to Tag


The Field To Tag feature copies the unique values from a selected field and uses those values to create tags in the Tags pane.

Creating Tags From Data Within a Specified Field

2.Click the Field To Tag tab.

3.In the Select Field list, select the field whose values you want to convert to tags.


When selecting a field to create a tag from, ensure that you select a field that is listed before your OCR numbered fields.

5.Optionally you can click the Prescan button to scan the data in the specified field for unsupported characters, tag name size (limited to 199 characters), and delimiter issues.  Any resulting errors are displayed in the Prescan dialog.  Close the Prescan dialog after verifying any errors.
