5) "Step 4: Set Filing Options"
a) "Select method of submission" - The only option is "Internet"

8) "Step 6: Your XML Submission File"
a) Displays the name and location of the XML file; you'll need this information in Step 7
9) "Step 7: Go to the Internet filing web page"
a) Click to go to CRA's Internt filing web page where you can upload your XML file; you must provide the transmitter's Business Number and Web Access Code to log in to the site
10) "Step 8: Record the Submission in Your Database" - Select one of the three radio buttons:
a) Select "I have submitted this file to CRA" if you've successfullly uploaded the XML file to CRA, be sure to also enter the confirmation number provided by CRA
