Applies to V Planner V3 that is dated prior to May 1, 2013. V Planners that are dated May 1st and later will not need this fix for the cells outlined below.
The Drop-down lists that are affected
Master/Override - on every lesson planner except C#
The "Show" drop-down in cell F3 on the Block1, Block2, Block3, and Block4 planners
The Year-Top/Year drop-down that is on all of the planners except AU and C#
What to do:
If you've only barely started setting up the V Planner or have not started at all, download a repaired copy from the member's area.
If you have already set up your V Planner with lesson plans and do not want to attempt to repair the file yourself, then email the file to me and I will repair it.
If you've set up your V Planner and want to repair it yourself, the do so; it is an easy fix. Follow the steps shown in the video for the lesson planners that you plan to use. For instance, if the planner is for only one child, then do not bother repairing the lesson planners for students 2-4.
