If you have used ReportPlus previously on your computer then follow these instructions.
1.If, when you start ReportPlus, you see the Update icon - click it. Follow the update instructions and you will be updated to the latest version. If there are any problems then make sure you have sufficient right to install programs on your computer.
2.ReportPlus will normally start once updated, if not then click on the ReportPlus icon normally found on your desktop.
3.Once ReportPlus has finished loading then you can archive the reports on your computer from last year. Click the Options icon and select 'Archive', use the archive window to create a backup of all last years settings and reports.
4.You can also make a backup of the currently loaded reports to the 'Past reports' system. Click the Save icon and select 'Backup reports to Past Reports'. Choose an appropriate name for the report and click ok.
5.In most cases someone will have updated your school layout and will have entered your pupils for you, if so then you can now import the settings from ReportServer or a file (usually ReportPlus will prompt you if it detects settings available for your school on ReportServer).
6.Once settings have been imported, ReportPlus will close.
8.Click the 'File' menu, select 'New set of reports' (a new set of reports will not affect your school layout). If asked then say 'Yes' to clearing the current set (they should be demonstration pupils) and 'Yes' to using the 'Default set' (if found).
