.hda File Extension

Developer: HotDocs
File type: HotDocs Auto-Assemble File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .hda. Files with the file extension .hda can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .hda files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .hda file?

Hotdocs is the main program that created the HDA files. These files are known as HotDocs Auto-Assemble Files and they refer to the templates created with the use of HotDocs. Hotdocs is a program used to create templates as well as automate documents. This program is very good at quickly and easily converting PDF forms and word processing documents into templates. Because of its powerful functions, Hotdocs is a common tool used by law firms, corporations as well as government agencies. HDA files are categorized as data files and the information they contain are the rules and formulas needed for the automatic inclusion or removal of document information. These files are also useful when it comes to publishing templates for the automatic assembly of a document. The auto-assemble file will only be deleted automatically once the HDA file assembly is done and the document is successfully created already. HDA files can be opened by Hotdocs itself and the software runs on a Windows operating system.

HotDocs is software which was developed by HotDocs Limited. It allows its users to convert different documents that were made using Word Perfect or Microsoft Word as well as those in PDF format into different types of templates. The templates that this software produces is in a form of question-and-answer interview which has the ability to produce customized as well as transaction-ready types of documents. This software allows its users to insert scripting commands as well as variables in the document which results to the creation of a HotDocs file component and a template. Document modelling which is one of HotDocs’ features can actually range from simple types of variable substitutions up to a more complex type of systems which involves recursions, logic, insertions among others. The scripting may also be added to the templates using different formats and can also be modified using a word processor.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .hda files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .hda. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
