              Appeal No. 96-2366                                                                                           
              Application 08/076,824                                                                                       



                     Upon return of the application, the examiner and appellant(s) should determine who                    
              is or are the correct inventors of the subject matter now claimed in this application.  Once                 
              that determination has been made, the examiner should see to it that the appropriate                         
              records in the Patent and Trademark Office accurately reflect that determination.                            


              2.  The “continuing data” set forth on the face of the administrative file, which again, was                 
              supplied to counsel in the form of the official filing receipt, does not match the information               
              contained on page 1 of the application.  For example, the information on the face of the                     
              administrative file indicates that Application 06/810,478 filed December 18, 1985, is a                      
              continuation-in-part of an application filed in 1986, which, of course, cannot be.                           
                     Upon return of the application, the examiner and appellant(s) should review the                       
              various parent applications and determine the correct chronology and relationship                            
              between the various applications.  Once that determination has been made, the examiner                       
              should see to it that the appropriate records in the Patent and Trademark Office are                         
              corrected.                                                                                                   


              3.  In filing this application under 37 CFR  1.62, counsel checked the box on the form                      
              which indicated the intent to file a continuation-in-part application.  However, in the                      
              instructions to amend the specification to insert “continuing data,” counsel checked the box                 

                                                            3
