Re: EDExpress Release Information
The distribution of EDExpress for Windows version 3.3 is scheduled to
start the week of 3/31/97. The major modification to this software is the
rewrite of ISIR print (CM #598). The Department of Education
requested the software be rewritten without the Crystal Report utility.
In version 3.3, the ISIR printing speed should be similar to the previous
year's Windows versions. In addition, the software will allow printing
more than 20 ISIRs per print job.
The following Configuration Management requests have been
implemented in version 3.3:
#488 When printing notes from the Notepad table, the name will print
along with the Social Security Number.
#536 VOBE is now accepting records with the mailing state of CN or
MX with five zeros as the zip code.
#545 Page 4 of the ISIR can now be accessed when an invalid Date
Application Signed is on the ISIR.
#560 When printing LIST-ENTERED APPLICATIONS, the option for
selecting records based on Transaction Status is available.
#566 The following NSLDS data fields on the ISIR will print correctly:
1. When current hold code is six zeros, it will not print blank.
2. The active bankruptcy and defaulted loan flags will print N (No)
when the value is blank.
3. If outstanding principal balance is blank, blank will print rather than
4. Region code will always print.
#567 Setting up assumed institution from Tools | Setup | App Express |
system will now allow the use of E and G codes.
#592 The error some users were encountering when importing a second
RADD file has been corrected. This was caused when importing a
duplicate RADD file containing an applicant with an apostrophe (for
example, O') in the two character name identifier.
#600 If using the institution range as part of the selection criteria, the
institution code can begin with an "E" or "G".
#637 On the Demographic (DEMO) Tab, the Document Status flag is
updated to "C" (All documents are satisfied) once documents are marked
#638 On the DEMO Tab, the Document Status flag is updated to "V"
(Required for verification) when a document required for verification is
#640 When an ISIR is imported into Packaging, the Verification Status

verification status on the DEMO tab is set to "S" (selected) on any ISIRs
imported after version 3.3 is installed if the ISIR is selected for

Pell Verification status value will receive documents required for
verification (regardless if an ISIR is present).
#665 The Pell Total field will be updated during the SAVE process after

calculated when more than 20 funds were defined.
