How to: Get Forms in the Transformation Input File Editor

The following procedure describes how to populate the Transformation Input File (TIF) Editor with the forms for which you want to create transformation input by using the Get Forms function. You can also add forms to the TIF Editor manually by entering the form ID.

Use the Get Forms command to get Microsoft Certified Partner solution forms. If you have forms that are based on the standard application forms, you will get those forms into the TIF Editor when you import the standard application transformation input files.

Before you begin this procedure, confirm that you have installed the TIF Editor. For more information, see How to: Install the Transformation Input File Editor.
