Learn how to review and correct an error that does not contain the correct number of fields via the PDP interface, generated from your PDP file submissions.

Welcome to the Structural Error Resolution Tutorial on the Web. Today, you will learn how to review and correct an error that does not contain the correct number of fields via the PDP Interface, generated from your PDP file submissions. To view the Error Resolution Report in the PDP Interface, go to the Link provided on the screen. Next, log in with your Application Credentials. Here is the landing page of the PDP Interface. The hyperlink on the Submission Number will only be available if there is an error contained within the file. Click on the submission number which will take you to the Error Resolution Report. This is the Error Resolution Report. It is important to read through the Error Message and Proposed Solution fields carefully. Here is an example of an error that does not contain the correct number of fields in the Header Record. The Proposed Solution states that the row must include 15 data fields. If the record was populated with the correct number of data fields, then check the number of additional commas to ensure that the total number of commas in each Header or Trailer record equals to the total number of commas in the detail record. If you are still receiving an error, please open the application you used to build your files and check if the record wraps and continues in the middle of the next row. This can occur when a cell is formatted to “wrap text” in Excel or if there is a line breaker in the application. Please review your file and make the necessary changes. Then resubmit the file via secure FTP. If you have any questions or need assistance, please reach out the PDP team at pdpservice@demo.studentclearinghouse.org.
