Unless you have a compelling reason to change the recommended file name, we suggest that you accept the default choice.
The name given to a new report file byor , and the one recommended for third-party or manually-created text files, follows the pattern of: form prefix + ID number + sequence number + extension.
The form prefix is the first letter of the file name, which is associated with one of the four form types:
The next 5 to 8 characters of the file name is a DEC-issued ID number. The ID number used is based on the form type of the file:
The next two digits are an (optional) unique sequence number between 00 and 99.
The last part is the extension of ".txt" (or C) or ".xls" ( ), which identifies the file as text or an Excel file.
If you are usingand save a Form 26 file in a folder already containing another Form 26 file and both files have a Certification ID number of C1234567, the file would be named PC123456701.txt.
