    We've had a few reports of this and there is a solution available on SupportNet. Basically try again and on your fastest machine.

    Only issue we had was with Edexcel, with students that have joined from other centres, and Edexcel using the previous UCI and not the one we sent them..... none of the other exam boards have this issue, they use the ones we send them.

    Any ideas? This is a yearly annoyance...

    Hi Phil,

    We have imported on the server this stop the OLE provider error.

    But the issue we have is E1 on during the import in Exam Organiser.

    E1 is KB54889 - E1 Error when importing results - Examinations Organiser

    The resolve the above is says to
    Right click the series and refresh basedata and import the missing element.

    The problem we are having is that all the elements are ticked already. But still failing during the import.

    Any ideas?

    Try logging into SIMs on the server itself and import from there. It worked for us

    We just say log on the server to import them.

    Anyway,

    with regards to the Embargo patch (and August)

    You can still access the results. We've just had a school contact us, if you have JUST class teacher access, the V.7 is blocked (within SIMS .net) and also within Exams Organiser (v.6), however if you run a report within Exams Organiser, it WILL print the results!!!

    No joke,

    So if I understand you that is how it is meant to be! Anyone with access to Exams Organiser is trusted.

    I think you miss understand. The Embargo patch stops everyone BUT the exams officer, SLT from access the results the day before the kids etc find out the results.

    However, ANYONE who has Class teacher, the default recommend group that every teacher, ie the people you want to stop access the results a day earily, CAN get on to Exams Organiser, run the report and basically, defent the whole point of the Embargo patch.

    You with me?

    This should help:


    SIMS Exams Embargo Dates 2008 Patch

    The Exam Embargo dates are still pointing at last years date and hence any Sims .net users who has access to the Student details screen will be able to view the Exam Results on the Results Embargo days this August.

    Focus | Student | Student details | Select pupil | Links panel | Exams

    This issue will be addressed in the August 08 release. If you are unable to upgrade to this release prior to the Exams results day, patch 12107 is available to hide the Exam results in the student details | Links panel for these two days.

    Please raise a call with you local support unit quoting KB81663
