Hi Nathan,

1) you have line wrap damage here so I can't actually tell what column
   number things like the CODE and the questions are in so I can't
   write a line

2) with our scanners there is a unique ID number printed on each sheet
   that also appear in the file in that beginning chunk of data. Do 
   you know if your schoold does that same?

Both of these questions could be answered most likely by sending a
larger extraction of information as an attachment,

You can likely use this file as is.

Both numberical codes, and digits represting bubbled in letter answers
work in 2.0
