For technical reasons it is possible to split a Sales Report Message into several files.

Blocks may not be split between files and may not be repeated in different files of the same Sales Report Message.

The last file can be determined in the HEAD record by comparing the FileNumber and NumberOfFiles Cells.

This structure is shown in the diagram below (note: the indentation and spacing is for illustration purposes only).
