EDGARLink Filer Manual (Vol I) Rel 8.8
Effective Date: August 23, 2004

EDGAR has been updated, primarily, to support the redesign of Form 8-K1, where the reportable events have been expanded from 12 to 22 items, a new hierarchical numbering scheme has been introduced for the reportable events (items), and the fact that the 8-K can be filed to simultaneously satisfy some filing obligations for Rules 425, 14a-12, 14d-2(b) and 13e-4(c). Revisions are also being made to provide support for EDGARLink on Windows® XP, in addition to existing support for Windows® 98, 2000 and NT; to provide support for modified exhibit descriptions for Regulations S-K and S-B; for discontinued support for submission Form types 40-8F-A, 40-8F-B, 40-8F-L, 40-8F-M and their amendments; to provide support for the electronic filing of submission Form types 40-17G, 40-17GCS, 40-24B2, 40-33 and their amendments; and, the ability to enter multiple classes (contracts) for a series at one time from a single web page.
