11.To enter pupil (and teacher) details automatically we recommend you use a CSV file, in the 'Tutorials' section you can find out how to create a CSV file.  Ideally your CSV file will at least have UPN, forename, surname, gender, dob, year and form columns.  Once you have created a CSV file, click the Wizards icon, select the Pupil wizard.  Once the pupil wizard has started click the CSV button at the top of the screen and find your CSV file.
 

12.You should now save by clicking the 'Save' icon and selecting 'Save your reports'.  The default name of 'reports.rp' should be ok, so if prompted just click 'Save'.
 

13.Double check all your settings by doing a print preview.  If all looks ok then you can start writing reports.
