ADT, ACT! Document Template (.adt)
The ADT Data file format
The ACT! contact relationship program (CRM) uses files that are saved in the ADT format. ACT! Is used to audit employees and clients and their details within one database. It provides the possibility to create word processing documents within the software. In order to create many similar looking documents with the same template, the ADT format was introduced to save such templates for repeated usage.
Technical details of ADT files
Other word processing software such as Microsoft Word can also be used to create document templates for ACT!, since they are compatible with the software. Thus, while ACT! is the only program that can correctly open ADT files, they can be created with other software as well. Usually, ADT files are stored and can thus be found in the following directory: C:\Program Files\ACT\Templates . In 2013, the ACT! Program was replaced by Swiftpage Act!
