After performing a Diff, you might want to see the details of certain fields, for instance fields with different values between documents or fields which do not exist in all the documents.

From the Diff panel, select the fields with your mouse (hold down Shift/Ctrl keys for contiguous / non contiguous selections) and click the Values button.

The results are displayed in a grid which shows:

  • the documents (or, where applicable, other types of notes) in rows
  • the selected fields and field types in column headers

When you click the Values button you'll be presented with a dialog where you can choose between using an advanced 'grouping grid' (which can consume a great deal of computer resources with large data sets) or a 'basic grid' (which has consumes considerably fewer resources).

  1. scanEZ default title (which is the "Form Name" for documents)
  2. The value of a chosen field
  3. The results of a formula that you enter
  4. The value returned by a selected column formula
EvaluateIf you created one-or-more virtual columns with the 'Add Column' button, you must click the Evaluate button to populate the column based on your chosen data criteria.

In certain instances you may want to click the Values button without even performing a Diff operation. The Values window can then be filled with Virtual Columns you can create with the Add Column button. There are countless creative ways to analyze categories or selections of documents using this features.
