Docuware forms should have a table field that indexes a table index field
In docuware 7.1 there is a new index field type of table. This is great except it isn't all that useful without being able to automatically enter data into the table. Our purchase order requests for example have to index a quantity, price, description, and 2 accounting codes for each line item. So currently, I have a spreadsheet that I print into docuware with a print configuration and it indexes each of those items so it can be used to import into our accounting system. I can't index the table items with the print configuration. According to your documentation page at, https://developer.docuware.com/dotNet_CodeExamples/workWithTableFields.html
Tables are only supported for Store dialogs, Index dialogs and in Workflows.
Tables cannot be added to search dialogs and content in tables can only be found through fulltext search."
That makes it pretty useless. If I could use the table field, I could replace 220 index fields (5 indexes a piece for 44 line items) with 1 table field. It would cut my sql code to export the data from 3740 lines down to 102, eliminate the empty index fields for line items that are not used and eliminate the limit of line items on a PO.
If I could use a docuware form to populate the table field I could eliminate the need for the excel spreadsheet. I would think adding the table field to the form should be relatively easy. Make it either definable like a dropdown list or defined by a table field in a file cabinet. Then there would be the added complexity of populating fields in it with a select list that would also be needed in my case.
Thank you for your idea. We added it to our collection of ideas and features and will further investigate it. We currently cannot say exactly when this idea will be implemented. As soon as we have more information we will update its status.
