change the form tag:
<form action="" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">

to:
<form action="<?php echo $_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]; ?><?php echo (isset($_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]) && $_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"] != "")?"?".$_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]:""; ?>" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">

Jason I noticed this in the forum:

In the 2 previous instances of this problem is was being caused by corruption in some of the files. Specifically it was a problem with extra blank lines being added to the web assist helper files on upload.

this is normally caused by the FTP program being used to upload the files using the Binary transfer method instead of using the ASCII transfer method.

Just so you know, all the files we're trying to work with were uploaded via DFP / DataBridge.

The FTP info you sent for me does not allow for me to make edits to the page.

But, by turning on visual aids to show invisible element:
View -> Code View Options

Check the Hidden Characters options, I can see that there are a number of placed on the page where there is a space between closing php tag:
?>

and opening php tags, see the attache screen shot for an illustration. in the screen shot, spaces are denoted by dots with hidden characters displaying and line feeds are denoted by backwords p's

you need to remove all instances of spaces, or empty lines between closing php and opening php tags.

Jason,

In Code View I used the "Format Source Code" button on the left side toolbar and selecting "Apply Source Formatting"

And It Works!!

I found this process at:
