When Registering a VGF file, it is important to match the file that is being registered to the appropriate Workspace. The Experian US dataset can only take VGF files from the Experian US folder. And, the Experian FULL US dataset can only take VGF files from the Experian FULL US folder.

If the VGF files are added to the wrong Workspace, they will show the error below and not work.


The resolution is to Click Yes to Unregister the VGF file, then re-register it to the appropriate Workspace following the directions in this article paying close attention to the Workspace and source folder.
