Manual Form Conversion

Top  Previous  Next


Many forms hold common information between them. By using the Manual Form Conversion facility it is possible to transpose certain information held on one saved form to a new form of another type. For this feature to work correctly the formatting of fields must be exactly the same on each form and the field names must be identical.


To Manually Convert a Form



From the ADLForms 'Main Menu' click on the <Convert> button



Select the saved form you wish to convert and click <Open>



The 'Form Conversion Options' window will appear


Select the form type you wish to convert the saved form to and click the <OK> button



The form you have selected to convert to will appear on the screen with as much information as possible transferred to the new form from the saved form


The new form will be 'Untitled' and ready for editing. You may save the new form and print as required.
