Comment 3 for bug 675662

Hi Douglas,

You are correct. When I view the data.fs file in my earlier version of
school tool I see exactly the same fields as you are seeing. When I view the
information on the live system I see additionally fields. I conclude that
after installation, the application was customized to capture additional
data critical to the institute. When I run the export tool it generates the
heading for all these fields (see attached for reference).

As stated before, any help to obtain additional information is most welcome.
So if dumping the details attribute in an extra sheet does that, as
suggested by Justas, I'll be thankful.

In addition to the data that I already have, the other two critical fields
in the existing data set are: the *data of birth* and the *ID* fields which
I see on the live application. Like the many other fields these appear to be
customized fields and I'm not sure to what extent the tool can populate
them.

Thanks again for all the help

Trevor
