About Transmitter numbers
ProFile FX module requires that a transmitter number be provided in order to XML file.
The XML file has a section called "T691", which acquires the MM number and builds a valid XML file for transmission to CRA.
Acquiring a Transmitter number
ProFile users can visit the CRA page to acquire a Transmitter number.
From the CRA:
If you are filing 1 return only and do not have an existing Transmitter number, please use generic transmitter number MM555555 to file this return. If you still wish to obtain a Transmitter number, please call 1-800-665-5164 to obtain one.
If you will be filing more than 1 return, please use the Transmitter (MM) number that we have assigned to you. If you do not have a transmitter number and will be filing more than 1 return, please call 1-800-665-5164 to obtain one.

1. Open the ProFile application.
2. Select the "Options...." option from the EFILE drop-down menu on the top toolbar:
