I have had this from the service desk however it is still not working for me:
Could you please ensure that you are using the latest version of FIS – many of the previous edition errors have been resolved. It can be downloaded from the following link (Sign in page) in the ‘Tools and Services’ area: https://submitlearnerdatabeta.fasst.org.uk
Once installed you may need to adjust the FIS Settings for SQL Express (the service installs with a default connection string). If you do need to do this, in the FIS Settings – Connection string box, please use:
Data Source=yourpcName\SQLEXPRESS;Initial Catalog=ILR1920;Integrated Security=True
Where “yourPCName” can be found by a windows search for Control panel – All control panel items – Computer name; and your version of SQL can be found from Task manager – Services – SQL server agent (in most cases this will be SQL Express).
This should then allow you to use all of the extra DB and SQL downloads.
FIS is also crashing for me when Exporting to SQL – I too have raised a call but I have not had a response from the service desk. I have tried latest FIS (188.8.131.52) but it still crashes.
Have you managed to get it working?
I am having the same errors using FIS 19/20 but the errors are cleared when using Submit Learner Data. The latest download of FIS 19/20 does not appear to reference the latest version of LARS. I have raised this with the ESFA and been advised to use Submit Learner Data.
