Document index files

The IndexAFP command and the PluginMgr command can create a document index file that contains all the index tags in a production AFP file. The index tags can be defined in the AFP file itself or in the AFP Visual Environment control file.

The document index file lets you use an archival and retrieval application, such as IBM Content Manager on Demand, to retrieve a page group within the AFP file based on its index values.

For example, if the account number in an AFP file is indexed, or if the data encoded in the Intelligent Mail™ bar codes (IMBs) is indexed, you can use an account number or IMB data to retrieve the relevant page group.
