How to map your document in Xtracta
The left-hand side of the screen is a copy of your document while the right side is the Xtracta mapping area.
1. All fields need to be filled with information such as the supplier name, and any that aren't are highlighted in red.
To map your invoice, highlight the information that is missing. This will automatically appear in the corresponding field on the right side.
TIP: Hold down the left button on your mouse and drag the pointer over the text you want to highlight.
2. If you are mapping quantities, unit prices and line totals in a multi-line document, you need to map each line so that the document is balanced.
In the example below the quantity and line total for the replacement hogget credit on the invoice haven't been mapped in Xtracta. And this is causing the document to be unbalanced.
3. If the Line totals don't balance to the Gross total (the total amount due), you won't be able to import the document into the database Transaction screen.
4. If the document is balanced the Gross Total field will be green.
Click on the Save button, the document will be ready to move into the Documents to code area for you to bring to the Transaction screen.
TIP: Once you're back in the Scan my Bills - Documents box, click on the Refresh button to move documents to Ready for Coding.
