Peachtree Forms

Peachtree Forms

Peachtree Forms

(OP)
Does anyone know how Peachtree stores its forms?  I am looking to create custom forms from outside of Peachtree, or even read the forms and convert them to other formats.  Any advice is much appreciated!

Regards,
Flinn

RE: Peachtree Forms

The are stored in the datapath.  The extension is always "FRM".  The file name is 8 characters and generally starts with the type of form it is, i.e., inv for invoice, followed by 5 digits beginning with 00000.

For example if you created a new invoice form for the first time in Peachtree and saved it, it would be named inv00000.frm.  If my datapath in my peachtree initialization file was DATAPATH=F:\PEACHW, then the inv00000.frm would be in the PEACHW directory on the F Drive.

Thanks for the response, but I understand all of that.  Maybe I should have been more clear.  I am actually looking to open the files and edit or export them.  I hexed a few and found out that they are stored in some OLE format.  But what I am looking for is any info that anyone has on the format itself.
