Document index file
The document index file contains the index tags that are in an AFP file. AFP Visual Environment can create this file when it processes a production AFP file.
PurposeThe document index file lets you use archival and retrieval applications to retrieve a page group within the AFP file based on its index values.
FormatThe format of this file is similar to the document index file that the AFP Conversion and Indexing Facility (ACIF) program creates. However, the resource group file that AFP Visual Environment creates contains only group-level Index Element (IEL) structured fields; it does not contain page-level IELs. The format is:
BDI IEL TLE EDI
- Begin Document Index (BDI) structured field.
- Index Element (IEL) structured field. The IEL structured field associates the index tags with a page group in the output AFP file.
- Tag Logical Element (TLE) structured field. The TLE structured fields in the document index file are the same as those in the AFP file.
- End Document Index (EDI) structured field.
