FAQ: Porting


Can Easy Grade Pro import student rosters from my school's administration software and can it export grade data back to it?


In many cases the answer is ‘Yes’. If your school administration software can produce a roster file for a class in text format and if it can read a grade file for a class in text format, the standard version of Easy Grade Pro can probably share data with it. You, or someone at your school with the proper knowledge and expertise may have to create import and export formats within Easy Grade Pro. Plug-ins can be used to distribute the formats to other users. For help, see Creating Formats for Importing and Exporting and Using Plug-ins. In some cases, custom versions of Easy Grade Pro are required. Contact Orbis Software for availability and pricing for custom versions.


How do I set the record delimiter to the CR/LF used by most Windows programs?


By default, Easy Grade Pro adds a CR (ASCII 13) to the end of a record. If your format requires a CR/LF (ASCII 13/10) combination, follow these steps:
a) Change the delimiter of the last field to CR (ASCII 13). To do this, select the last field and click the Edit button. In the window that opens, change the delimiter to CR.
b) Add a Blank Field to the format. To do this, select Blank Field (the last field) in the list on the left and click the Copy button.
c) Change the delimiter of the Blank Field to LF (ASCII 10). To do this, select the field and click the Edit button. In the window that opens, change the delimiter to LF.
