MERGEFORM Workflow Application

Overview

The MERGEFORM workflow application takes multiple form data files and merges them into one file. It can also merge form archives into a target form archive by merging the HTML sections from both files.

How it works

All parameters are optional, and parameter names can be set by the process designer. To copy a data from one to another, the only action required is to set the default value as the data to copy and set the data into which you want to retrieve it. The parameters’ directions must be INOUT. There is no limit to the number of parameters.
