RE: 1998-99 SSCR processing and message classes
Beginning in April, NSLDS is sending all new SSCR initial rosters in 1998-99 format. You
should use version 4.2 of the 1998-99 EDExpress to import, update and return these and
future initial rosters to NSLDS. All initial rosters will now be sent using the message
class SSCR99OP. Use EDconnect's activity log to verify the filename and its location.
Please note version 4.2 will NOT rename the SSCR message classes from OP to BK when
you import them into the software.
If you recently sent an automatic (SSCR98IN) or manual (SSCM98IN) file using
EDExpress version 3.6, resulting SSCR error notification file(s) will be returned to you
using the 1998-99 message class of SSCE99OP. Finish processing this SSCR roster in
EDExpress version 3.6 to properly update the submitted records and to review the
results. You must manually select the 1998-99 error notification message class
(SSCE99OP) and file from the list because EDExpress version 3.6 defaults to 1997-98
message classes for SSCR which are no longer being used.
NOTE: If you want EDExpress version 3.6 to automatically show message classes for
both 1997-98 and 1998-99 on the import file list, you should change your default settings
under Tools/Setup/Global/File Management. Click on the SSCR Confirmation Filename
and change it from "SSCE98OP.*" to "SSCE9?OP.*" under the Default Import Directory
Any outstanding SSCR records from pre-April batches can be resent using either
version 3.6 or 4.2 of EDExpress, or updated online with NSLDS. Future error notification
files for records sent from either version will be returned in 1998-99 format, using the
SSCE99OP message class. We recommend finishing any pre-April, in-progress SSCR
processing using EDExpress version 3.6 to ensure all records have been updated and
accepted before switching to version 4.2.
