Third-party Merge

Top  Previous  Next


ADLForms enables other industry software programs to merge data into most ADL forms. This feature provides a faster and more accurate method of completing forms, directly from the data already stored in your database, preventing costly errors associated with double handling.


Most of Australia’s leading real estate software providers supply merge facilities to ADLForms. Click here to view a full list of software packages that support the ADLForms Merge.


It is important to note that ADLForms does not 'interface to' these software packages, but these packages 'interface to' ADLForms. ADLForms does not know of the other software's presence on your computer system and has no way of interrogating their file structures. The third-party software packages create files that ADLForms can interpret to produce forms for you.


Third-party Merge Options:






Default Templates


Third-party Interface

ADLForms enables you to setup the Default Template to be selected every time a particular form is merged to from within a third-party application.


For each form you require to set a Template for, click on the button to the right of the form name and select the appropriate Template from the pop-up Template Selection dialog box.


If Multiple Documents Being Merged, Use Print Options Last Selected

Third-party Interface

This option only applies to the older version of our Interface and  ticking this option will have no affect on the ADLForms Professional Merge.


Use ADL Versions of Forms Where Available

Third-party Interface

This option allows you to specify that when a third-party program is trying to merge to a standard prescribed form, ADLForms is to use the ADLForms equivalent (if available).


Where Value Set in Template File, Do Not Use Third-party Value

Third-party Interface

Sometimes a third-party program may output fields that they never actually output information for or output invalid information. This can be a problem, especially where your template has the correct information for that field. By ticking this option, the Template information always overrides the third-party information if the template field is not empty.
