To separate the copies of (a multiple-copy computer printout, for example) but not to behead ?
Is it also true ?

He agreed that decollated data had to be extracted from the access database but said that the programme that could be used to get the data for the plaintiff would have been the same database and there would be no need for a third database to do the calculations.

It seems to me, that it may be explained by way of comparison to the snail, a living organism, and the length of its shell (decollate). If the snail is no longer living with its shell, then the shell is decollated. The shell without the living snail is empty. The substantial meaning of the document treated before as a whole can be changed into anything if separated into parts. I am not sure, whether the parts created by means of the separation of the whole document into multiple, allegedly self-sufficient units, can be meaningful to the extent as it were at the time while constituting a whole document. This might be a task for the Public Prosecution to inquire into this matter.

This perfectly good word sounds odd to me because we used to speak of collating papers, not decollation.

To me, decollate sounds odd because of decolletage. It's difficult to square a beheading and a low neckline.
