200 Types, Cross-Noting, and Status of Application

Correct reference in MPEP 201.07

At the end of the first paragraph of MPEP § 201.07, it says "For more information on claiming the benefit of a prior nonprovisional application, see MPEP § 201.11." There is no MPEP § 201.11 This reference likely should be to MPEP § 211.01(b), which discusses claiming the benefit of a nonprovisional application.

Error in 201.07 "same invention"

the phrase "the same invention claimed" in the first sentence of 201.07 should be replaced with

--an invention disclosed--

Continuation applications are sometimes but not always for the same invention. By statue they are only required to be based on the same disclosure.
