2.Present in the same directory as the other format files, but is named incorrectly, or
3.Incorrectly referenced within the EQuIS Format Definition (EFD) file.
Resolution/Workaround: For Internet Explorer users, follow the steps below.
1.Obtain the most current enumeration file from your project manager or contact the EarthSoft Support.

<xs:enumeration value="<=" />
<xs:enumeration value=">=" />
Users may also try unzipping the format files before trying to open the format in EDP.
