RE: Duplicate ACA Text Message

On May 1, 2000 RFMS sent most schools a text message through TIV WAN
(message class PGTX00OP) regarding the amount of the Administrative
Cost Allowance (ACA) that was paid into the school's bank account and
the number of unduplicated recipients. Some schools had problems with
importing the file and RFMS is sending the file in a slightly
different format. If you have already imported the file and had no
difficulties, it is not necessary to import the second duplicate file.
If you did encounter difficulties, please import the second file
and try to open it. If you use EDExpress for Windows, follow the
