    Question Changing Establishment Number

    SIMS Spring 2013 looks good! I've just requested the spring 2013 upgrade files from Capita. But, I tried to get the upgrade off of SOLUS 2 because I can't seem to get SOLUS 3 to work, it's too much of a faf. Anyway, SOLUS 2 doesn't work because there is an error with the establishment number within SIMS. How do I change this?

    I'm pretty sure it's hard coded at install. You can see it from Focus | School | School Details. I'm guessing, the SOLUS 2 is no longer set up to look out for you any more..

    There is an actual error with the establishment number; one of the digits is wrong. Can it be changed?

    You should be able to change it, but you may need a patch. We needed to run a patch to change our DfE number when we became an academy.

    In case it helps the patch number was 15913, but this was back in September so it may have changed for the later releases.

    It looks like it's still the same on KB111374 , but changes will affect all your history, which isn't an issue if it's wrong i suppose.
    It's just odd that it's affecting you now and not before. How have you done all your other updates?

    I have just successfully updated to Spring 2013 by requesting the update from Capita. But for future reference, where can I download that patch?

    You would need to request it either from Capita or your local support team. Quote the KB article and patch number above.
