Managing Actions in a Table Capture List

  • Rename fields – By default, the agent columns in the output collection are named after the columns in the table. You can change a column name without affecting the accuracy of the collected data.
    To do so:
    Go to Actions List > Right-Click on the capture you want to rename > Select Properties > Enter a name for the field > Click** SAVE**.

  • Refine List and Refine Capture Text – Limit which tables rows you harvest. To do so:
    Go to Actions List > Right-Click on the capture you want to rename > Select Refine List when the capture is a list.
    Or ,
    Select Refine Capture Text for the other captured items on the Table list.
