Importing from Word

Return to main instructions

If you have a list of pupils in Word, it is simplest if these are in a list, one name per line.


Do not include passwords, or these may be created as additional students!

“Save As”, and choose “Save as type:” Word Document, along with a suitable file name.

Later versions of Word (from 2003, and particularly in 2007/Vista versions)  can include lots of “clutter” that has to be stripped out when importing into our programs.  If this happens, copy the names, and paste them into “Notepad” or similar, which will usually give a much cleaner import.
