Q: How is data transferred from Lawgic to ProbatePlus?

Data is transferred from Lawgic to Estate Works in two stages: From Lawgic to the Case Viewer via a Case File, and from the Case Viewer to Estate Works via an Interface File.

    Start Lawgic and open the answer file you wish to transfer.

    Click the "Lawgic/ProbatePlus" menu and select "Create and Load Case File". The file will open in Case Viewer, where you can ammend the file if you wish.

    To send the file to Estate Works, you will create an Interface file, which is a file that exports data into Estate Works.  On the Case menu, choose Save New Interface File. It will be saved to a Lawgic/ProbatePlus folder in your “My Documents” folder. (Typically, this path is C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\My Documents\Lawgic\ProbatePlus\Interface Files\NEW_INTERFACE <filename>.xml).

    From the Case Viewer “Case” menu, select the menu item “EstateWorks Login”.  
    (Please note: EstateWorks currently only supports the Internet Explorer browser)

    Login to EstateWorks. In EstateWorks, click on the "Manage" menu and select "Admin -> Tools ->Lawgic Import”.

    Browse to the location where you stored the interface file in step 3. Choose the file, and click on the “Next” button. NOTE: Be sure to choose the file from the INTERFACE FILE folder, not the CASE FILE folder.

If you need to change the information you have already sent to Estate Works, you must update your Interface file and re-send it to Estate Works using an “Update Interface" file type. To do this, go to the Case menu in your Case Viewer, and choose Save Update Interface file.

    Important Note: Before doing another import of the same decedent in EstateWorks, (i.e. importing a NEW Interface File for a decedent which has already been imported to EstateWorks), delete the previous case from the ProbatePlus database:
    >>  Click the "Case/Delete Case" menu
    >>  Select the radio button for the case you wish to delete
    >>  Click "GO" beside "Delete"
    >>  Click the "Contacts/Edit-Delete Contacts" menu
    >>  Click "GO"
    >>  Delete every contact with a "Delete" button
