We have a file dump from Wausau Financial Systems containing metadata and check image files. The header is IHWFSIMAGE<date>

File has separators "BH" at the top of file.  "BT" and "FT" at the bottom.
Separators for the images look like  "IH" then .dd and the account number.

Any ideas what this could be and how these files can be extracted?
Looking to export them to pdf and ocr them eventually.

Thanks,
Max

I'm guessing that you'll have to write a custom application to do this, unless someone has already written it.  Since it sounds like you've already deciphered the file layout, would be a simple matter to write an app to extract it, but you'll need the services of an app developer...
