What version is your SIMS?

Capita are blaming the Boards and guess what the boards are blaming Capita
non of which get the exams officer off my back
anyone got a suggestion
What version is your SIMS?
Same problem here. I tried changing the file to version 11 as some people have done on supportnet but this doesn't work as some of the students now have Xs which are not a valid value according to Exams. Either the base data is broken or they were introduced in version 12 of the file.
we are having a problem importing the results.
We contacted our support through the LEA Support and they gave us a patch to apply thorugh dbupgrade. Ok so I applied this patch and still the results will not import, I have been given a second DB patch to apply which I will try tonight.
We are on the latest Autumn Upgrade.
I will post back the results of applying this second patch.
PM me your email and I would be more than happy to forward the patch's to you.. although I would advise contacting your LEA support first to see if they can help.
If you are on Autumn Upgrade then you should be using Version 12. This is the version that all exam Boards should be using.
No good blaming the MIS porividers for this! There was enough documentation about it in August re. GCSE imports, which were in Version 11 then! We could not upgrade until we were certain we had all the results!
Get on to the relevant exam board and demand the correct version!
Which Boards are involved? Our imports worked ok yesterday with AQA!
Did you try this from the Capita Sims.net Exams Forum...
Open the results file with Notepad - the first line will end with 12. Change that to 11 and then save the file. It should now import into SIMS without problem.

One wonders why ppl post SIMS Technical questions here without consulting SupportNet - where the real SIMS experts usually are ...........
Did you say 'experts'? Ha!
I know that Phil Neal will vouch for the expertise of at least one person on there .............
The files are version 12, exams is 6.74. Apparently the error "Result not in range defined for the Aspect" is produced when trying to import. Files are from Edexcel.
Ah well it was worth a try, seems to have worked for quite a few others.
You should be on EO v6.76! (Autumn Release)
Not sure of the version if you have applied the Autumn Update - we can't until Capita Hosted SLG is upgraded first, scheduled for Saturday.

"Open the results file in Notepad and change the 12 to 11 and resave. I was then able to import all my results files into SIMS".
this worked for us
