    Thanks, that looks cool.

    I wonder if Mr Tolley is a member.

    I've used the 'contact me' to check, make a correction to the instructions and also suggest whether the publish to html output can be used as that would save some of the setup time. Not sure if it's a valid suggestion as i'm not able to test the package out yet so don't know how it works or what it needs.

    Hi vikpaw,

    Thanks for the message, got your email. Didn't realise that it had made it onto EduGeek already!

    I have made the correction to the instruction.

    I hadn't thought about using the HTML output as a source of the data. I will have to have a look into it as it would save a great amount of time exporting all of the cover information, and equally an amount of time importing that information into the workbook.

    If you have any other suggestions or improvements I would be glad to hear of them, and will try and put them in.

    No idea how Serco works - never had a chance to use it.

    I'm sure it could be adapted though - just depends on what format data comes out of the MIS.

    Perhaps when my workload, EG BETT, and my writing and conference stuff dies down in a month or so I could have a look at that with you and see if we could adapt it to work with Serco?

    C'est la vie! This looked too good not to share it with as many SIMS Users as possible!

    I hope that you did not mind me taking this liberty!
    I posted it into two forums on SupportNet as well!
    And thank you Craig for making it freely available.

    Not at all! No point every school re-inventing the wheel.

    I have downloaded your Absence Analysis zip file but it will not unzip with the current version of WinZip. I get an error message saying it is not a valid archive.

    Have just uploaded the file again - now zipped with Windows rather than WinRAR. Should work.
