    Anyone else having problems or anything else to report.
    I've found that users with roaming profiles keep getting spurious errors, like they can preview an individual report and then print, but not print directly.
    Also mailmerge reports don't work as mentioned before.
    Can't get late letters to work either, i guess as it's a mailmerge.
    Not sure if it is roaming profiles or just permissions, but in testing, a domain admin with roaming profile can't do some stuff whereas the regular admin account that has no profile can.
    I fear we may have messed up a little when migrating from XP to Win7 so the profiles are a little funny.

    We've had problems with Assessment Manager throwing errors and have had to roll back the Data Managers machine of Office 2007 to fix the problem. No issues anywhere else though, we've been running 2010 since the start of term.

    Vik, I have come accross similar issues here. RTF Reports are a no go, Individual Reports don't work and according to SupportNet forums it isn't supported still.

    The question was asked at the Software Update Seminar at Coventry, should Capita move to 2010 or continue with 2003?. A quiet seminar but most said stay with 2003. I can't see many schools (Primary) rushing to 2010.

    I would guess part of it has to do with the cost, a good number (not primary usually) are on schools agreement with Microsoft and so have access to the new software essentially free of charge.

    Aware the biggy is the new-ish interface, but schools I have worked with (and in) often adopt the new versions quicker than some think, if they have access to it.

    Our Primaries moving from 2003 to 2007/10 with the ribbon would be a nightmare to support. I have enough trouble finding things in 2007 as an occasional user.

    I find the ribbon much easier to work, as do the children. They find it far easier as it is more visual for them.

    In my previous life we had a massive headache when we did the move over a summer without letting staff know!

    Training all of a sudden became a love of my life!!!

    Even better with 2010 now that there is a File Tab on the Toolbar.

    We can generate Ind. Reps okay, but bulk printing seemed to fail, though that's a win 7 permissions thing i think. Editing the template is a defo no-no. RTFs are gonna be a pain as i rely on those a lot, especially since mail merge is not working.

    Spring looks like the time but that's a long way off. You better keep a few Office 2007 machines to edit your templates, else you're really not gonna be happy with your reporting!

    I find both Office 2007 and 2010 hard to deal with, but don't use them that often, so it's frustrating when i'm looking for buttons i'm used to. Those that use it all the time, are now used to the more intuitive layout. Plus there are the help docs like the one i posted earlier to help with the transition.

    We received this message from our County SIMS support team "We have noticed recently that some schools have rolled out Microsoft Office 2010 which has been causing issues when running reports from SIMS .net. After further investigation we have found that Office 2010 is not compatible with the current versions of SIMS .net due to changes that Microsoft have made to areas used to merge the data from SIMS .net into the office documents."

    I am still running Office 2003 and am likely to leave it like that for a while.
