    Have you set up the promotion rules via the Routines\School menu?

    Have you sent a basic dataset to SIMS from NT6?
    And if so, are you working in the correct year?

    I have followed the instructions they sent.
    We have setup the promotion rules and exported the basic band structure. The students all appear in the curriculum assignment and the blocks also appear. Its just the option to run the wizard is greyed out. I have tried resetting up the promotion rules it hasnt worked. I am working in the academic year of 2011 - 12 so in answer to that questions yes (would have been gutted and felt stupid if it was that )

    Sorry but something else that is obvious but one has to ask - do you have full Permissions from Sysman to edit the data?

    Sorry then Chunks I cannot offer further advice. I do not sort our Options within SIMS and so I have not got to this stage yet.
    I would log a new Support Case if I was you!

    In the browser for the schemes there should be the word 'promotable' for any schemes you've created rules for. Is that the case?

    if i add the column "promotable" to the browser it puts all my schemes under no promotable. Why would that be ?
    What makes a scheme not promotable...

    Shouldn't need to add the column, it's there by default. Selecting it is probably just grouping the schemes by the promotable column. It sounds as though the rules haven't been created properly so I'd look back there to be honest. Confirm and Save etc.

    Could do with bit more info on what you can see in the Promotion Rules screen. If you select one of your rules, what comes up in the bottom left window?

    Think i may have been a numpty.... although not of my own doing. Last year i went through the process following the notes but my predecessor must have taken steps before he left so when i followed the notes that year it just worked.... this year however i now realised he must have gone through additional step (only briefly mentioned in notes, not guided through) to get the promotion working properly. Never had to do this before because he had kindly done it for me. Dont want to tell you what it was cos you will all point and laugh

    Thanks for your help peeps
