  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??

  Version 17.3
Posted by: user@name - 11-08-2017, 12:05 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (1)

Please if someone could post all the curriculum and other changes to occur in version 17.3 as this might have a very time-consuming impact on those using SA-SAMS, and a preventative mindset regarding information capturing could be greatly beneficial.
