Generating Canadian government reports is a multiple step process. An overview of the process is as follows:

  1. Set up all of your government reporting data and populate the Student List table.

  2. (Optional) Generate a report of students.

  3. (Optional) Freeze the student list.

  4. Run the extract process.

  5. Review the report data.

  6. (Optional) Correct the source pages or online pages and rerun the extract process.

    Or, correct the data directly in the extract table.

  7. Generate the flat file.

  8. Deliver the flat file to the federal or provincial government.
