5. Below Column C - Deposit Type field, type the letter 'A' in the cell.

Note: The two acceptable date formats: mm/dd/yyyy or yyyymmdd. The effective date must be changed each time a new file is sent for processing. If the system receives two files with the same dates, it won't load the second deposit file because the system thinks there are duplicate posts.
