Edu.Dex expects to find your data submission in a specific location with a specific naming convention. Please confirm the following if Edu.Dex is unable to find your data submission:

1.  The data submission files are in the location that you are pointing Edu.Dex to. Make sure that you are pointing to the right location and that the files are saved in this location.
2.  The data submission date is the same as the date that you are selecting in Edu.Dex (see item 3 for the date format).
3.    The data submission files have the right naming convention. Make sure that your data submission files have been named correctly. Edu.Dex is expecting the following:

File name: Pffyymmdd.dat
Where P  represents your provider code (MQAU-8).
Where  ff  represents the number of the file (01 for Learner information)
Where  yy represents the year of the submission (06 for 2006).
Where  mm  represents the month of the submission (07 for July).
Where  dd indicates the day of the submission (01 for the 1st day of the month).
Where .dat   is the required extension of the file.

Your provider code (the value that you must use for all references to the field Provider_Code in the file specifications, and as part of your file naming convention) and ETQA ID (the value that you must use for all references to the field Provider_ETQA_Id in the file specifications) is printed on Edu.Dex installation CD label.

If you downloaded your version of Edu.Dex from the Edu.Dex download site then you would have received an e-mail from the Edu.Dex support team that specifies your provider code and ETQA Id. Please contact the Edu.Dex support team at Edu.Dex@Praxis.co.za if you need us to provide you with this information again.
