So...did OCR mess up your A2C downloads too?
Walked in, results were happily sat in ExamIn ready to be imported and then spreadsheeted into submission.
Except, there's quite a lot of results missing. What's the common factor......it's OCR.
*trudge off to the other method of getting the results*
A2C helldesk already had their "yes, OCR broke something (undertone of *again!*)" speech rehearsed.

We posted a solution to this (for ONATs) on SupportNet Forum this morning. The File format was wrong!

As it apparently always is, our exams folks have to work around it too. The welsh one decided they couldn't be bothered this morning too.

Funny, our OCR results imported successfully.

You and I are talking about different OCR failings, I think. Ours wasn't a file format issue (opened it in notepad, searched for the missing kids and the results weren't there), it was that OCR failed to deliver the results via A2C due to (and I'm paraphrasing from memory, so may be wrong) some schools having multiple ID codes with OCR if they'd historically used certain other exams/OCR-subsidiaries. OCR didn't take this into account when pushing results via A2C, causing a lack of results for certain schools.

It may just have been the OCR Nationals file that was incorrect.

Sorry Pete, I didn't realise you were talking about a different issue.
