[LON-CAPA-admin] scantron grading problem

I'm grading a scantron file and when I get a record that is flagged  
for an improper ID, I am unable to select the proper user to override  
the error.  I click on "Select User", select the correct user, then  
click "Continue -> using corrected info" and nothing happens...the  
username disappears from the field before the "@" and it just stays  
on the same error screen.

Any suggestions?

Don't know how this affects things, but at NDSU 98% of our students  
have 6 digit IDs, the other 2% (the ones getting flagged) have 5  
digit IDs.  I've uploaded their IDs properly, but when it comes to  
reading the scantron file LON-CAPA can't seem to adjust to the 5- 
digit.  It identifies the ID on the form correctly...I've tried  
adjusting the 5-digit number within the ID field on the scantron data  
file so that it starts with a zero (i.e. 012345), tried it with the 5- 
digit number and leaving a blank in the beginning (i.e. _12345) and  
leaving the blank at the end (i.e. 12345_) but all to no avail.  I  
didn't have a problem with this last semester...it seemed the fix  
then was to have a leading 0 (i.e. 012345).
