We can’t find the XML file to upload

Your Census return created several files with CES in the middle of their filenames.  Most of these files are reports and end with the html file extension. The file that should be submitted to CES has the extension XML and will have a name similar to this: 3903313_CES_390XX24_001.xml.

If you cannot remember the exact location of the folder containing the census files, you can find it in SIMS by going to Routines | Statutory Returns | Schools CES Census and looking for the “CES Census Folder” field at the top of the screen (you may need to click the Browse button to see it).

If the file is not in this location, check that the census has been authorised. The XML file is only created when the census is authorized.
