  No Subjects for Grade R
Posted by: Paul Zietsman - 11-28-2017, 12:47 PM - Forum: 12. Curriculum Related Data - Replies (2)

The subjects for Grade R does not show on 12.3.12. I can not enter marks.

It does show on 12.3.11 and validation was done.

How do I solve this one?

  Less children in 12.3.12 (maintain learner task assesments) than on Learner Listing (
Posted by: Paul Zietsman - 11-28-2017, 12:43 PM - Forum: 12. Curriculum Related Data - Replies (2)

Less children in 12.3.12 (maintain learner task assesments) than on Learner Listing (4).

How do I get them back on 12.3.12? When going to 12.3.12 I have in Grade 3 Afrikaans only 11 learners instead of 14 for Eng FAL, Maths and AFR HL. For Life Skills there is only 9 instead of 14. When going to Learner Listing (4) all the learners are on the list. The same is happening with the Grade 3 English group. The same is happening with the Grade 2 group and Grade 1 group. Can anyone assist?

  Capturing General Report Comment

Good Morning.

Please let me know of the quickest way of choosing the General Report Comment. 

Typing in the comment number does not help.  Have to scroll through the entire list - not so easy as the full comment is not visible. 

Any suggestions.?

Kind Regards

Current Size: 20.1 MB

Extremely Important:

  • Remember to make regular Backups of your SA-SAMS and School Library Module databases.
  • Some Provincial EMIS Sections choose to approve a new Patch first, before their users install it. Please confirm with them first, if in doubt.
Other Notes of Importance:
  • If you exported Mark Sheets to be imported: please import the last Excel Spreadsheet before patching.
  • The Patch does not affect the Curriculum Setup in Primary Schools.
  • It contains corrections on Learner Attendance and Reasons for Progression, that is important.
  • It needs to be patched at High Schools, before finalising the Promotion Schedules.  
  • It contains updates on Gr. 10 and 11 Hospitality Studies.

  • NB: Unlike the Initial Release, this Patch is now compatible with 32-Bit and 64-bit Windows Operating Systems.

  Mark Schedules Error on menu
Posted by: Gerald - 11-16-2017, 09:42 AM - Forum: 12. Curriculum Related Data - Replies (2)

Hi All,

I get the following error on my main database PC (Win 8.1) as well as on certain other PC, although some does work fine Sad

When I go to Mark Schedules on let's say menu option and I choose to Export to Excel, the ...Please Wait.. Formatting Spreadsheet (15.0)... shows up, and then I get error:

This action cannot be completed because the other application is busy. Choose 'Switch To' to activate the busy application and correct the problem.

I click Switch To, nothing happens.
Then I have to Ctrl-Alt-Del, stop SASams process, then Shutdown PC, so that it gives error on shutdown about Excel still working, then cancel shutdown, then Save the Excel file Huh Huh

ANY suggestions would be much appreciated.  Undecided

  System hangs at ....Please Wait....Checking Birthdays...
Posted by: Gerald - 11-16-2017, 09:25 AM - Forum: 1. General School Information - Replies (1)

Hi all,

I am sitting with the following problem:

On my main PC (not a server) containing the main SASams database, when I try to access menu option 1. General School Information, system freezes on the pop-up showing ....Please Wait....    ..... Loading Birthdays.... and I have to stop SASams process.

This happens on the main PC (with database), with Win 8.1, and also on my own laptop with Windows 10, and on some others as well. But it works fine from some of the PC's on network loaded with the same Win 8.1 setup.

Have done the following already:

Re-installed SASams.
Re-installed Spread.
Set the UAC(User Account Control) setting to lowest. 

Any suggestions??
