Alchemy Datagrabber

DataGrabber is an extension for the Alchemy Administrator client that parses ASCII text and EBCDIC files into an Alchemy repository. Used for COLD and COM (Computer Output to Microfilm) replacement applications, or for creating large image archives.

DataGrabber imports text data into an Alchemy repository at very high speeds. To enhance the presentation for end users, the Alchemy administrator can design bitmap overlays of the original report or statement. Alchemy 8.0 clients also have a new Greenbar viewer option.

Alchemy DatagrabberHere’s how Datagrabber works. First, in any text editor create a Definition file using the powerful and versatile DataGrabber scripting language. This will determine exactly how the Data file will be parsed: where does a record begin and end; what new repository fields to create on the fly; what data to extract into the fields; what if any files to merge with the data records; when to create a new folder; and much more.

Then within the Alchemy Administrator program, run the DataGrabber operation. This will process the information, add new records to the repository and update the indexing methods you selected.
