It is important to stay current with your abstracƟng soŌware vendor’s noƟficaƟon of latest Edit 
Metafile updates. By remaining current with the latest Edit Metafile and following vendor’s 
instrucƟons for uploading it into abstracƟng soŌware, abstractors have the latest edit sets with which 
to check their data PRIOR to submiƫng to either their region, or directly to CCR (for abstractors 
uƟlizing Direct Access). In this manner, edit errors such as noted above will be avoided.
