How to access and download a report definition file from a SIMS installation.

NOTE The SIMS user will need the following roles enabled:

  • Employee
  • 3rd party reporting

They will also need to have write permissions to be able to save the file to the target location.  By default this is C:\Program Files (x86)\SIMS\SIMS .net.  If they do not have such permissions an error will be received.

Locating the file

  1. Launch SIMS
  2. Go to Reports > Run report with Focus > Student
  3. Locate the ParentPay2020 report and double-click on it.
    (You may have a later version with a different year value)
  4. A notification will be received stating that the .xml file has been saved.
