 Mark Schmitt - Changing Due Dates by section or recitation  9/28/2002; 3:23:02 AM (reads: 759, responses: 2) Currently, we have the ability to change due dates either for an entire course, or for individuals. Does anyone have a method of changing due dates by section or recitation? I tried to modify profChangeDates, but got incomplete header errors. Inside sub changeDatesAndHeaderFiles, I replaced the definition of @probSetKeys with: foreach $loginName (@Students) { my %loginList = &getAllSetNumbersForStudentLoginHash($loginName); push(@probSetKeys,$loginList{$setNumber});} @Students was an array of login names for a given section. The code I used to generate that array has worked fine in other scripts, so I don't think the error is there. Because we are now running multiple sections of a class in one course, the ability to change dates by group is very important to me. Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks.

I was triggering the bad permissions error message, so I moved the permissions check outside of the subroutine and things started working. My initial tests all look ok now. Thanks.
