The FHA/VA Case Number is no longer required to be shown on every form in your report, according to FHA EAD guidelines. Click here for steps on how to comply with the FHA Case Number standards.

Though FHA no longer requires their file number to be present on all the forms in your report, your client still may require it, or a different file number on all pages. You can adjust your settings to accomodate this request in a few easy clicks, and you only need to perform these steps once. After the initial setup, TOTAL remembers your settings for future reports. Watch the video below to see how to do this in TOTAL, or continue reading for step‑by‑step instructions.

Print a file number on every page of your TOTAL report

If you're delivering your report in AI Ready (ENV) format, the steps below do not apply. The file number must be entered as either the Main File Number or Other File Number on Form. Click here for more information.
  1. Open your report in TOTAL.
  2. Go to the Assignment PowerView by clicking Assignment on the upper left.

    Click Assignment

  3. Verify or enter the file number in the File Numbering section in the upper right.

    Enter FHA/VA Case Number

  4. Click Tools in your menu bar on the upper left, and in the drop‑down select Report Options.

    Select Report Options

  5. In the Report Options window, check the box next to the Show Lender Case No. on each form. (Something other than "Lender Case No." may show in the drop‑down.)

    Report Options

    Use the drop‑down menu to select the appropriate file number option.

  6. Click OK to close the Report Options window. Keep in mind that your file number will only appear on the report when printed to PDF or delivered. It doesn't display on every page when viewing the forms in TOTAL.
  7. Now you can mark the pages to print and set any other print options as normal, then click Print to print the report with the FHA Case number on every form.
