How to Locate a DocID

DocIDs can be obtained by opening the ASCII text version of the document. Within each ASCII file, GPO blows in header information. For example:

[Federal Register: February 11, 2004 (Volume 69, Number 28)]
[Page 6640-6641]
From the Federal Register Online via GPO Access []

The DocID is generally the last item in the header. Some examples include:

  • [DOCID:fr11fe04-52]
  • [DOCID: f:hjrnh98.wais]
  • [DOCID: f:h1eas.txt]

To input the DocID into the form, copy the information following DOCID: and input it into the appropriate box on the form.
