How do I know if the file is new?

Each file has a creation date. The information is updated mostly on a daily basis, but for some types of cases the information is updated weekly or monthly.

Back to the Frequently Asked Questions list

Why would I need to know the file layout?

File layouts provide the names of the data fields together with the length of each field. This information is needed to effectively and efficiently utilize these files.

Back to the Frequently Asked Questions list

Why is the ADD TO BASKET button missing for some reports?

Download reports are generated from case information that has been entered into the Clerk's main computer system for a specific day or timeframe. Each night the Clerk's computer systems are synchronized and case information is updated and a variety of downloadable reports are generated. If no activity is entered for a particular day or timeframe, for example, weekends or holidays, then the report will remain empty. To avoid inadvertent purchases the ADD TO BASKET button has been removed from all empty download reports.
