All documents must be submitted in PDF with an extension of ".pdf." Two common erros occur: first a user thinks that they saved the document in PDF. The user then tries to file the word-processing version of the document instead of the PDF version. Second, a user fails to indicate the full path name for the PDF file. Because the system cannot find the file, it responded with the "format not recognized" messaged. The solution: Provide the full path name withen identifying the file during the upload process. Ensure your document is a PDF document.
