The report folder is created by the PRL Reporting Software as a sub-folder of the Report Root, one report folder for each report year.

The PRL Reporting Software displays the current location for the report folder in the upper right corner of the Registration form Control Center.

For example, if you create reports for the 2014 report year and have not changed the Report Root location, the default report folder location is: C:\PRL2014.
