No......doing so is improper.

You'll likely get a 1099-R form for the removal from the former plan, and you'll enter it in the software....and indicate that the $$ were rolled over to an IRA in the followup questions after the main form.    If you are able to import the 1099-R form, you may have to edit the form so that you can get those rollover questions.
