Product: Filing Instructions Guide

  • Validation IDs have been updated to account for the Demographic Information of Principal Owners 1-4. The corresponding Validation IDs have been renumbered and grouped based on Data Field.
  • For example, the previous validation ID E0900, po_X_ethnicity.invalid_enum_value has been broken out into:
    • E0900: po_1_ethnicity.invalid_enum_value
    • E1080: po_2_ethnicity.invalid_enum_value
    • E1260: po_3_ethnicity.invalid_enum_value
    • E1440: po_4_ethnicity.invalid_enum_value
  • Pseudocode for the multi-field validations that reference the number of Principal Owners 1-4 has also been updated.
  • All Validation updates can be reviewed via the Validation Spec for sections 4.1, 4.2, 4.4, and 4.5
