structured documents

Standardized forms that come in the exact same format or layout every time. Examples of structured documents include credit applications, surveys, and order forms. The data to be captured is always located in the same place on the form. To eliminate the need to manually enter the data from structured forms, a template is created to define each of the individual data fields to capture, like name, address or Social Security Number. The software then captures that information at the same location every time.
