    Hi. I am trying to submit a EAS however whenever I try to upload the CSV file I keep getting the same errors message ‘ File name should use the format EASDATA-LLLLLLLL-yyyymmdd-hhmmss.csv.’ Does anyone know what this means? I have used the example file from the website.

    Naming your CSV file
    37. Your file must follow these naming guidelines for our system to accept your EAS
    Must end with the .csv file extension and follow this format
    EASDATA-LLLLLLLL-yyyymmdd-hhnnss.csv where:
    L = UK provider reference number (UKPRN) – this must be 8 characters
    y = year at file creation
    m = month at file creation
    d = day at file creation
    h = hour at file creation
    n = minute at file creation
    s = second at file creation




    Hi Martin. It was the L section I was having issues with. It only just dawned on me to try the UKPRN! This has now gone through thank you 🙂
