  1. Hello,
    This may be a JV question. However, I’m a new PL and trying to do the right thing.

    Can I have more than 2 pages for a 2062? I have Strykers which have enough items to fill 5 separate 2-page 2062’s. If so… where can I find a 2062 that has more than a front page and only 1 back page?

    Thank you for any help you can give.


    • You can use the 2nd page of the document as many times as you need. If you have a 5-page document jus tprint one copy of the first page and four copies of the second. Make sure the bottom right of each page accurately reflects the page numbers.

  2. Caleb, you can have multiple pages to a DA Form 2062. You can find the form on Find and open the 2062 form and click “NEXT” on the top right corner of the opened XFDL file.

    Hope that helps.

  3. Sir,
    You can use as many pages as you need for a 2062 on equipment, such as shortages or HR’s. Just use the second page for all your other entries and label the pages 1of1 2of4 and etc….

    You may use as many copies of a DA Form 2062 as you need. Ensure that you number the pages accordingly – I.E., 01 of 0X, 02 of 0X, and so on and that all the above data is entered uniformly on each page used for a like item – Set, Kit, or Outfit.

    Also, when a 2062 is used as a hand receipt, you must cross out “ANNEX NUMBER” on the top, left corner.
