ADF is documented in the Advanced Data Formatting (ADF) Programmer Guide.
What you are trying to achieve usually would be the job of the host application, not the scanner.
ADF allows switching rule sets on certain criteria. So you can switch rules on the fly.
However, there are just 4 rule sets to chose from. This is sufficient in most situations.
Thanks for the link Andreas,
I couldn't find it at all.
I understand your comments about the string splitting being done in the application, but that's not a luxury I have any control/influence over.
I'll just make the separate configuration files then cut and paste a single page word document out of it.
Many thanks for taking the time to respond,appreciate it.
