Document Management

A Document Management System (DMS) is a system (both hardware and software) used to track, manage and store documents and reduce paper. Most are capable of keeping a record of the various versions created and modified by different users (history tracking). It is often viewed as a component of enterprise content management (ECM) systems and related to digital asset management, document imaging, workflow systems and records management systems.

I have a client that has no electronic backup files for hard copies of booklets that require periodic changes. In fact, the problem is we don't know what format the original was created in. Some of these books have been around for years. We have a an old xerox scanner utilizing 'Document and Scan MakeReady' version 3.0.0.16 software. We don't have the CD. It doesn't appear to be available - I assume it's really old. It is running on a Windows 2000 Pro PC. The value of this existing software, is it's ability to allow edits from a received  scan document without changing the original format. At this point - after edits, it can be printed prior to having to save it to a file format , like PDF or DOC. In other words, it allows you to cut/paste changes without altering the original format.

Does anybody have a low cost solution providing the above functionality? Is there an OCR out there that will allow you to make changes prior to committing to a file format.

Hello, whenever I scan a large document using Paperport it has a small window that says "Nuance WIA" and it doesn't allow me to use other programs without jumping to the top. Very irritating when trying to process a word document. I have looked through many settings and can't seem to find a way to remove it. Any ideas? Thank you in advance.

Hello, I am wondering if anyone has had any luck converting PDF documents to clean HTML. By clean HTML I mean HTML that is easily readable by programmers and would pass  (or come close to passing) a W3C validation. Also it would be nice if the document was already mobile-friendly and styled/formatted the same way as the original document.

I have tried multiple products likes JPDF2HTML, Zamzar, and ABle2Extract to convert PDF to HTML but they all do not produce 'clean' HTML.

Does anyone know of software that can do this?

 I also have .docx formats of the same files, so if there is software that can do this for docx, than that may work as well.

I've created a very basic fillable pdf form out of an excel sheet.  I am having trouble with two different columns of fields. Other columns of fields with the exact same properties do not have these problems.  Here is the problem:

When I test the form, in either Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro or Adobe Reader, I try to delete numbers from the fields after I enter them (to see if ctrl+z can be used to backup a step). I can delete information from some of the fields this way, but others will not delete. If I try to delete using Edit-->Undo, it lets me click edit/undo, but the information is still in the field.  When I go back to the field and click on it, the data disappears. When I click somewhere else in the form, that same data reappears.  I've searched online and the only similar problem seems to be data that is not shown in a field until clicked. Mine is sort of opposite. "Deleted" data shows in a field until you click it.

Thanks for your help.

When printing PDFs via the 'quickprint' option in Outlook they fail, with an error message stating the file could not be found in: (the Outlook secure temp folder). While opening files manually in Outlook I see the files populate in the temp folder, and close properly when the attachment is closed. Additionally, when working properly, I can see the temp file populating in the temp folder on quickprint as well.

However, while the problem occurs, watching the folder when performing 'quickprint' the files are not created and the error is thrown stating the file is not found.

Any thoughts?

Hello , I would appreciate any help regarding the following question:
I have many registers for incoming correspondences (about 8 registers in different location on my PC and server).
all these files have same table structure & design from column A to column K, and start from column L the information changed upon type of register.
The attached 3 files are sample for incoming letters, MOM and transmittal.
I wish to pull out the data from these registers, Only which match word “open “ in column K.
The other excel file “Pending Correspondence” is the consolidation file for the “open” data as following:
1.      In the sheet named “input”: all variable data, I will update manually all information in the column A, B and column C as mentioned in the log.
2.       regarding sheet named “Overall Pending” :
a.      In the column A, I need to have name of the file that the data was imported from.
b.      In need to have all imported data from other registers to be paste in column B up to column L.

I have made manual sample for result that I am expecting automatically and hope it will give you better idea for what I need.

Thanks in advance for your efforts.

This server hosts a document management system based on SQL, but also has a large directory of documents.  The program offers full text indexing of the documents using the server's indexing service.  There are currently just over 1 million documents included in that index.  We have started having issues with the index developing corruption, at which point the server detects it and starts a reindex.  With the number of documents that indexing takes several days.  The directory with the catalog (in ProgramData) is excluded from backup and from antivirus scanning.  I can't find any definitive reason for the corruption.  I also can't find any definitive advice on the recommended size or number of documents for the service to work well.  Does anyone have experience using the index service for very large numbers of documents?  Does it work well?  Are there any reasons for the corruption that I might be overlooking?  Thanks!

Can a Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500 use OCR to specifically NAME a file (PDF) as the value found when scanning?  For example, it we have a stack of invoices, all formatted the same with the Invoice Number in the same location, can we scan those and ask ScanSnap to name each individual scan page based on the value of the Invoice Number?  (I.e. Inv123.pdf, Inv456.pdf, Inv789.pdf)

Alternatively, I am more sure that we can make a PDF SEARCHABLE so that we could SEARCH within each document for a given invoice number... (i.e. search ALL PDFs that contain INV456)).  Only problem is, that would be slower than simply eyeing down a list of filenames...

Best way to scan and file similar documents?

Thank you!

What is that called?

What programs can do that for me on a Mac?

Only answer this if you can...but those using this morphed image would certainly need to know the answer. Is that morphed image my property? Anytime I use images I need to certify they are mine or public domain.
