To minimize transfer time and to bundle multiple files together Thomson Reuters Data Capture encourages Data Providers to compress their transmissions
with one of three compression methods: PK-ZIP/Info-ZIP (.zip), GNU ZIP (.gzip or .gz), or UNIX compress (.Z).
Utilities are available for DOS, Windows, UNIX, and Macintosh to read
and write these compression formats. UNIX tar (.tar) archives are also supported.
Uploading using FTP
FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is Thomson Reuters Data Capture's preferred method for
uploading files. Users may use any FTP client from any computing
platform. The FTP server's address is westdcs.west.thomson.com.
Anonymous FTP is not supported, so have your Thomson Reuters Data Capture login name and
Several easy to use, graphical based clients are available for Windows
and Macintosh. Many clients feature drag-and-drop interfaces that allow
users to drag files directly from the desktop to the remote system. An
Internet connection and an FTP application is required to use FTP.
Uploading using Web
Thomson Reuters Data Capture allows data providers to send files using Web browsers like
Google Chrome and Microsoft Internet Explorer. Thomson Reuters Data Capture's web
server uses the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to ensure the privacy of all
transmissions. To transfer files using this method, connect to
Thomson Reuters Data Capture's web site (https://westdcs.west.thomson.com) and follow the instructions on the page.
Google Chrome and Microsoft Internet Explorer is SSL-capable and recommended.
Uploading using Internet Email

Internet mail servers limit the size of attachments to 9 MB. Additionally, because of the nature
of Internet email servers, email is a much less secure method of transferring files.
Under rare circumstances, email may not reach its intended recipient.
