  I downloaded 1940 Federal Census Test 1st  Film #005251234-250. 

Share Batch #176659022.

My question is about the "State or Territory or Foreign Country of Residence on Apr.1, 1935" Field.   In this batch, this is a required field and the Field Help states that if the column was left blank, mark this field as blank, which I did.  Before I submitted the batch I decided to review the Presentation on How to Index this project again.  The batch I downloaded happens to be the batch used in the PDF.  On page 10, it shows that this field isn't required and is shown as being skipped.  On page 13, the instructions agree with the image that is on page 10. 

I guess my question is, If this field is going to be a required field and marked blank if nothing is recorded, shouldn't the PDF instructions and images say that same thing?

Other than this question, I think that the instructions and field helps are very clear and understandable.  I really appreciate and like PDF's.
