IMPORTANT - Autumn Census 2018 - Fileset 1006
Filesets for Census can now be updated automatically through SOLUS so Fileset 1006 should already be installed in your SIMS system. The Fileset ID is shown at the top of the School Census screen in SIMS. It is important to validate your Census return using the latest available fileset. If you do NOT have Fileset 1006 installed you can download and import it into SIMS using the instructions below:
Right click on the file below and choose Save Target As (might be different depending on which browser you are using). Save this file to anywhere on your machine, we would suggest J:\SIMSData\Inbox although it might automatically save to your downloads folder.
Find the saved zipped folder on your machine, right click on the zipped folder and choose Extract All.
In SIMS go to Tools > Setups > Import Fileset
At the end of the 'choose Fileset' box click on the little yellow browse folder and navigate to your Fileset. You will need to open the unzipped folder then choose the Fileset from here. The filename will be 1006-StatutoryReturns-Autumn2018_Fileset.mfs. Click on this file then choose OK.
Once selected click Import Fileset.
You will now see a message which reads "Import successful. Please close SIMS.net and re-open it." At this point, please close out of SIMS and log back in. You can now validate your Census return.
When you load the Census screen by going to Routines > Statutory returns > School Census, you should see the correct Fileset number (1006) at the top of the screen.
