How to Hide the Color and Black and White Count Fields in an Export Using the Split Color Flag

Article # 3015973 - Page views: 173

With Equitrac Professional 5, when using the split color flag in an export file, you must include the bwcount, colorcount and totalcount fields in the export or you receive an error message. Is it possible to hide these fields?

There are two options.

Option 1:

Create a transform to replace the contents of each field with a blank string.  However, this option still leaves an empty field in the export for each field. 

Option 2:

To completely hide the fields in the export file, use the following PERL script transform to completely hide each field.  This eliminates the field and the delimiter so that nothing shows up in the export.

sub EQTransform {

  $input_field = $_[0]; # source field

  $input_delim = $_[1]; # source delimiter


  $output = '';
