Hi Seemon,

you have got the bonding energy from ORCA based on supermolecular 
(energy of complex minus energies of optimized fragments): the ADF
ETS energy provides in the output interaction energies between 
exhibiting geometries as in the final complex (fragments are not 
optimized), so it doesn't calcutae
distortion energies of fragments directly; once you add such distortion 
energies of fragments
you shall obtain similar results to these obtained by the ORCA program, 
your ADF data
now shall be similar to the ORCA calculated as Ecomplex-Efragments(not
