PowerSchool importing Legacy fields to merge with new contacts after consolidation

First you need to find the offending field, which in our case is the father, mother field whilooks like it takes the fields of the new contact fields and joins the "First Name" and "last name" fields to display queries. But queries only involving the legacy fields.

The goal it to upload new data into the null fields and overwrite the field.

Problem... becuase the field draws from the new contact fields and techinically those field have data... the change needs to be mapped to the new fields. Upload to get a change and then overwritten again back to the correct data.

Add custom fields to PowerSchool

1. add custom fields

System> custom fields/ screen>Student Fields Click new.

Add new field to table

system> Page and data management> Manage Database Extentions>

Select table to extend> Usually "Students"

Select "Advanced Extentions"

Next

Select Table you want extention/field to go into 

next

Then click next again

Step 4 is where you ad your newly created field

Click "add"

Migrate Data from: Select your fields from the drop down

Drupal 7- My WYSIWYG text Editor disappeared! When I go back to edit content in body field!

This drove me crazy.  Check the text in your body field, or whatever text field and see if you have the word "select" in your content text.  Sometimes it identifies it as a SQL injection.  Use a different word than "select" in your text.  
Not sure if there's a work around but I use a synonym for it in my content.

To change this default setting (5 times) add the following lines to your settings.php file.

$conf['user_failed_login_user_limit'] = PHP_INT_MAX;
$conf['user_failed_login_user_window'] = 5;
