Provisional Application for Patent Cover Sheet

Provisional Application for Patent Cover Sheet
« on: July 22, 2019, 04:31:19 PM »

I recently submitted a provisional patent application online but I realized that on my cover sheet I accidentally checked "Application Data Sheet" even though I did not include that on my submission. Would that create any delays and/or require an additional fee to correct?

Thank you.

It should be fine and they will likely change your selection and fix it for you.    If you don't get a filing receipt back from them after 3 weeks I would call the UPSTO and ask them to confirm everything is okay.
