For those districts needing to import data utilizing a sequential file, the format of the records must follow the specifications provided in the EMIS Manual. These files must have an SEQ extension in order to load properly into EMISFFE. Multiple record types may be included in a single load file.
Five Year Forecast Assumptions may not be Imported into EMISFFE using the Import option. EMISFFE will convert text into the proper detail format for EMIS-R reporting using the Forecast Assumptions (QN) entry screen. For specific details on converting QN data, please refer to the Forecast Assumptions/Notes page.
When importing a large data file, EMISFFE may time out with a "Proxy" error. This may occur after approximately 15 minutes of importing data. However, even though this error is generated, the data continues to be imported. Depending upon the size of the data file being imported, it may take several hours for the import process to complete.
If the "proxy" error is received, do not start another import process until you have verified that the previous import has completed. After this "proxy" error has been generated, the load of records may be monitored by going to the list view for the record type being imported. At the bottom of the List view page, take note of the value that shows in the box to the left of "Next". That box/value represents the highest page number. Then click on that box for the highest page. When the list view is redisplayed, if the highest page number box shows a higher number, records are still being loaded.
