Within WebCenter Forms Recognition (WFR) Designer, the Invoice Date field using the standard extraction methods extracts a Date plus unwanted characters.
The word on the invoice is: "ABC.2017.12.07"
The corresponding match is: "ABC.2017.12.07"
The extraction needed is: "2017.12.07"
If there was a space between "ABC." and "2017.12.07" in the invoice, this issue would not exist because OCR identified two words, "ABC." and "2017.12.07". Since there is no space, "ABC.2017.12.07" is seen as a single word.
Using this scenario, how can only the date be extracted?
