I'm trying to train Decipher to read information from remit slips (tabular data). However, the remit slips may differ in their format slightly basis the bank. I want exactly the same column data from each remit slip irrespective of format (header name, column positioning vary).
So should i create multiple document types like remit slip-bank A, remit slip--bank B; or should i create just one document type - calling it remit Slip and then classify all remit slips as one document type?

Hi Sid,

If you're looking to extract the same values, then you should only need 1 DFD and Document Type. This is the main benefit of using Decipher that only need to configure it once and the training will then manage itself by layout.

Hi Sid.

To add onto Ben's answer, you can have multiple sample headers for a particular field so if doc A has a different header than doc B, include them both for the field.
