I will have to take down the subject choice system for a little time today to fix up a bug. We do not allow or was it in that the subject codes could be changed. Subject codes are normally set in stone and have been for the last up-ten years. This affect all year 12 business classes. This will require the whole subjects table to be exported, changed and imported back in.
Another things, after all the science subjects were allocated to there teacher in change, two weeks ago, I have now needed to do this for another department as well. I probably should have created a all in compassing department id that multiple people could have used. Oh well. We all learn from our mistakes.
Email that was sent to all HoDs...
This was managed without having to do a full export, instead it was easier than that, I was trying to rename a 12ACA subject to 12ACC before the 12ACC subject had been rewritten to 12ACF. Working this around fixed the issue. I still took it down to do some maintenance on the software and to do a full export, drop and import, just to make sure the backup will work if need be.
