OCRTEXT() has the following limitations:
- Requires an internet connection
- Can only be used as an initial value or app formula
- Cannot be nested inside of another formula. If you need to further process the output of the
OCRTEXT()results, you can use
OCRTEXT([Image])in a hidden column and then use that hidden column in your formulas (see the sample app above).
