The rows are usually caused by a failed search for the school. Scroll to the CEEB column and check the CRM for that CEEB. If you get no results check to see if the school exists with a different ceeb. Finally before taking action, confirm the ceeb in the file is accurate for that school.

  3. (Find the school and search their site)

If the school is not in the CRM; create it and fill the info using their website. If the CRM needs the CEEB updated, do it. If the file was wrong, update the file.

Finally, run the file again. You’ll need to rename it back to cf_StriveScan.csv and use the same job you used the first time. Repeat until error file is empty.

If the Account was created or updated

Go to Banner > ZSCHOOL Search or insert into the form using the info you acquired. Use other rows to assist with data format.
