How to Import/Refresh Basedata

Note: All pages below are subject to having relevant Roles and Permissions.

This is the process to follow to import or refresh Basedata. Before this can be done, your Basedata should have been downloaded (this is usually provided by the Exam Boards in a ZIP file format) and uploaded to the Bromcom server. You should also ensure that the Exam Board for the Basedata you are about to import/update is set to Active for the required Season.

From the left Menu go to Modules > Examination > Routines > Manage Base Data.

Exams 013

From the Actions list select the Import/Update Data option.

From the files area select the Basedata file you wish to Import and select the Match Import for Series from the dropdown list.

Exams 014

Note: If required, you can use the Season and/or the Board dropdown list in order to refine the list of available files.

The Convert Text to Lower Case tickbox will convert any BLOCK CAPITAL DATA found within the Basedata, into a lower case format.

Click the Go button to display the Import page.

From here, you can individually select the required Exam Options, or use the Select/Deselect All Option.

Exams 015

Note: The order/presentation of the Exam Options can be altered by checking the use of the Exam Option Code First and Exam Option Name First checkboxes.

Once selected click the Import button to Import the data.
