Q: How can Bates numbers get added onto the metadata of a document?

Answer: there are three different ways a document's metadata may have corresponding Bates number(s) associated with it. 

  1. loadfile (Bates number field)
  2. overlay (Bates number field)
  3. OCRed (text field)


All three are searchable, but OCRed text can have errors, depending on the quality of file that was sent to Disco. To search for a Bates number, Bates prefix, or a Bates range in Disco, use the following syntax: 

Expression Parameter Type Example
batesnumber Text batesnumber(Enron000009)
batesprefix Text batesprefix(enron)
batesnumber(...to...) Text batesnumber(Enron000009 to Enron000022)
