I accidentally transmitted an uncompleted file to CRA. How can I re-send the correct completed version of the file to CRA?

I saved a copy of the client file to a flash drive and finished working on the file on the flash drive.  I then loaded the copy of the file from the flash drive into the Profile Workspace.  I checked the Tax Summary to confirm completeness of the return.  I then transmitted the Return to CRA.   I then noticed on the transmission receipt from CRA that the data path was to the copy of the file on my computer data folder and not the path to the data folder on the Flash Drive.  I have to assume the unfinished version of the file on my computer's data was sent CRA and not the completed copy on the Flash Drive's data folder.   It appears that Profile prefers to transmit the copy of the file in the Computer Data File Folder and not the copy loaded into the current Profile workspace or the file located on the Flash Drive Data Folder.  What is the correct procedure to correct this and get the correct copy of the client's data file to CRA?


If the correct return was the opened file when you efiled the return then you efiled the correct return. The data path that you saw when you transmitted is actually the location of the transmission file that was created when you efiled the return and not the actual file.

Every time we efile a return, a transmission file will be created in the form of .TAX or .RESPTAX  or .FX (for T1013 submission) and it will be stored in the data path that you saw. Check the location of that folder so it will be clearer to you.

Hope this helps.

People come to ProFile for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
