Field Types cannot be populated dynamically from a database

QAID # 923 Published

Question / Problem:

Can I populate the 'Values' of a Field Type from a database?

Answer / Solution:

There is no way to populate a Field Type's data values dynamically from a database.

The only two ways to populate an Index Field with only those values that exist in a specific database are:

  1. Use Kofax Capture's Database Lookup feature to perform a lookup on a database based upon an entered value.
  2. Use dialog boxes and database access through SBL scripting in a Validation Script to perform queries that you construct.

Examples of how to use dialog boxes in SBL can be found on the Kofax Web site under Kofax Capture downloads, "Softbridge Index Scripts".
