OK thanks for clarifying that we were getting credit, when we keyed a "/" to denote it as a blank field. I thought that for all these years I was getting credit. It's good to know I can still keep keying the "/" and not change my brain to adjust to keying in a "0".

Enjoy the weekend all.

I'm not sure if we're supposed to key the / in "PA /"

I did it without today and my rejecteds were way up, but I feel like I've done it with before and suffered the same fate, so I don't know.

Same thing here. My rejection rate for Alphanumeric was abnormally high yesterday.

Besides "PA /" snippets, there are other kinds/patterns of snippets in Alphanumeric that are very confusing to me. This happens often in the street addresses, but when there is clearly no spaces placed after "," ("," and an alphabet or a number are typed/written right next to each other without leaving any space), I key them exactly the way I see...with no space, and my rejection rates go up.

If anyone knows how to handle this type of snippets, I'd appreciate for your help or advice. Thank you

Yep, same for those. I asked support about that but didn't get a response.

The instructions for the different categories of work are all easily viewed. Hope this helps:

Data Entry - Alphanumeric

The simplest work type because there are just a few rules.
  • If an item is blank, type a single slash "/". You will see <BLANK> displayed and you will receive credit for a single keystroke.
  • If the item is illegible or you cannot satisfactorily determine the answer according to the rules for the format, then press "Enter" to skip it.
You Should
  • Key all letters (Ignore capitalization)
  • Key all numbers
  • Key spaces
  • Key symbols below
    . , : ? % @ & / _- '
You Should Not
  • Correct any misspellings
  • Key more than one space between words (you will not get credit for incorrect spaces)
  • Key symbols below
    ! # $ ^ * ( ) < > \ + ; [ { ] } "

They are but there are instances where I'll do it by the book and end up with a ton of rejecteds. I did include the / today and didn't have the sky high rejecteds.

The question I had for support was whether we leave a space when there's a character we omit between two others we key, like: a(b)c or 1,(2)

Those would be keyed with the space in lieu of the parenthesis.

ITGUY, I've been noticing a lot of snippets in Alphanumeric that look like that didnt get scanned correctly. There are like 3 or 4 lines of information but you need to magnify the snippet to read it. I have been skipping these.
