Thanks, Stuart,

So, if they only have the institutional id's and the section information only shows
then nothing works. OK. I can fix that.

That is the situation in some of the classes. Some of the students are taking classes on line and have individual start dates and end dates that are, e.g., 9 months from the start date.  Evidently I messed up on the format. I thought I had checked that, but the format in the files looked unexpected and is certainly not what you listed above. I'll have to fix that. Then we can see what shows up.

Thanks yet again!
