This article gives step-by-step instructions to modify a students details to have their name appear correctly on their report. This is used in situations where a student has two names seperated by a space.
The Quick Vic Reporting software treats names with spaces as multiple names. In order to have a full name print out on the Report, it is necessary to use a "non-printing space" instead of a regular space.
In the Student Details screen, removing the space between the students' two names and insert a non-printing space.
- Open the student which needs to be modified and insert the cursor between the two names.
- Delete the space between the two names.
- Depress the "ALT" key and enter "255" using the keypad (Num Lock must be ON). Then release the "ALT" key. If using a keyboard without a keypad, keypad emulation will need to be turned on. Laptop computers generally have a button which can be pressed which turn the letters on the right hand side of the keyboard into a keypad. This button may vary from laptop to laptop.
The Quick Vic Reporting software will treat names with these spaces as a single name; both names will appear on the report.
