    How difficult is this?

    I'd like to try out a piece of KS3 ICT levelling software before signing on the dotted line as I have my reservations.

    Our SIMS manager tells me that she can only export 1/2 year groups at a time so that would be six imports. She also says that each class ID would have it's own column.

    This seems a bit odd to me - I thought a large database system like this would easily cater for this type of need. Is it not possible with SIMS to export thes whole of KS3 into a single file where each student record contains the ICT class they are a member of?

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Sounds like she's using the standard reports and answering a 'what group' question when SIMS asks it. A custom report can do what you want, just pick the fields you're after and specify appropriate filters.

    You should easily be able to do that. Knock a quick report up and export to Excel. I am assuming all you want is:

    Surname Forename ICT Class or something similar.
