To copy1 2 or delete complete rows on any of the forms, there are buttons along the top left of the form.  As you are entering data right-clicking the mouse will display a pop-up menu of options to cut, copy and paste one or more cells.  If you did not make applications (Form 26) or sell any pesticides (Form 25 or 27), use the check box in the header area to tell us that.

See the Data Dictionary for field descriptions and the record layouts of each form. 

The EPA Registration Number List makes it easy to enter the same product repeatedly.

As you are entering data into the form, the program validates your entries and displays a pop-up dialog when you need to correct a value. When you save the file, the program asks whether you would like to validate the file first.  If you choose 'Yes', cells which do not pass validation will be displayed with a pink background so that you can find and correct them.  Hover the mouse over any of these cells (or click the cell) and the error message will pop-upCells are validated as you move the insertion point to the next cell.  While it is possible to save and submit your files without correcting validation errors, the Pesticide Reporting Service Bureau may reject or return reports because of the invalid data.

By default the file is saved in the C:\PRLyyyy folder (where yyyy is the report year) report folder .  You can change the file location to wherever you want, but it will be simpler when you are ready to upload the files if you save them in the default location.

Closing a form will return you to the Registration Form the Control Center where you will be able to open another form, exit the application or upload the report to us.
