Creating Automatic or Custom Templates for Unsupported Bank Statements in DocuClipper

While DocuClipper supports most bank and credit card statements, there may be instances where certain documents are not supported. In such cases, you can create a custom template for the unsupported document or you can use Automatic Conversion. This article will guide you through the process.

With DocuClipper, you can convert any PDF document into a spreadsheet without any configuration needed. Here’s how:

  1. Add Documents: Upload the documents you want to convert.
  2. Automatic Conversion: Once the documents are uploaded, the data will be automatically converted.
  3. Download Data: Click on “Download Data” to get your converted data.
  4. Select Number of Columns: Decide how many columns the data will be split into and click on “Download XLSX”.

Requesting Bank Statement Support #

If you prefer not to create a custom template, you can request customer support to add support for your specific bank statement.
