SIMS Autumn 2017 Census - Fileset 703 required for validation - should already have been installed automatically
IMPORTANT - Autumn Census 2017 - Fileset 703
Filesets for Census can now be installed automatically by SchoolsICT so Fileset 703 should show on your School Census screen. However, if this version is NOT showing then you will need to download and import Fileset 703 into your SIMS system in order to complete your Autumn 2017 Census. Please follow the instructions below:
To import the fileset please follow 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 0703-StatutoryReturns-Autumn_2017_Update_Fileset.mfs and will be the only file showing in the folder. 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 are now ready to start your Census return.
When you load the Census screen by going to Routines > Statutory returns > School Census, you should see the correct Fileset number (703) at the top of the screen.
