    Query about CTF and ATF schemas

    Hi all,

    As usual apologies for any ignorance that I betray but I hoped I might be able to gain some knowledge from you lovely people.

    Our sixth form have been trying to set up an online applications process and the potential developer has asked if I can show him what format an import file would need to look like if we wanted to export data from the application software and then re-import into SIMS.

    My question, is there some kind of 'schema' available that I can send him for CTF and/or ATF files? Or would the only option be to send him an actual CTF which I have stripped of any real information? Are there any drawbacks in doing this?

    I've got to say I'm not happy at all with the idea that a sole developer is being considered who doesn't seem to have any idea about how SIMS data transfer works. However, I've made those opinions clear and am still being chased to send this information through.

    Excellent, thanks both.

    I'll be honest, I did try and have a google and didn't come up with anything, although I probably didn't try searching the DfE site directly. What a plonker. Is it just me that find it painfully difficult to find stuff that the DfE release?

    Partly because I quite rightly agreed with Chris and Shaun that I would not (personally) over-promote this (in return for allowing me to a) stay and b) keep going with the MIS Challenge). It's the base for the results for the MIS Challenge for the most part but I'm also collecting useful resources for schools and such and creating a hub of information free to use.

    The Rich Tea? They're double plonkers, if you dip them too vigorously...

    If you've got Registrations & Admissions there is an import from school web site option which is a lot simpler.
