SIMS Profiles: Help Needed: Copying Free Format Comments from one session to another
My first post on here and quite a complicated problem
I'm a new Data Manager (2 weeks into the job) with an good IT background, but new to SIMS.
We have an issue in PROFILES whereby we have two active sessions:
Session A - has been set up incorrectly
Session B - has superseded Session A and is the correct session
Some teachers have entered free format comments for some students into session A (the wrong session) and we need to :
- Identify the free format comments that have already been entered by teachers into Session A
- Copy the free format comments from Session A to Session B
Our local authority help desk have advised me to lock 'session A' so that the problem does not get worse.
Comment banks are not being used, it is just free format comments
The general concensus among the help desk is that we are stuck !
Any help and guidance will be welcome
