Tips for Downloading
Both Comma-delimited files (.CSV) and Tab-delimited files (.TXT) are common data file types and can be opened in Excel.
- CSV files are separated by commas.
- TSV files are separated by tabs.
Tab-delimited files can be opened in Excel but must be saved as .TXT files. Saving the file in another format will make the file unreadable by the system when uploading.
Don't change the file name while saving because the Grade Center needs the information it contains to deliver it to the appropriate column if you plan to upload data back into Blackboard.
Excel may produce a warning message when opening a downloaded file. This will not affect the contents of your file. If a warning appears, click OK.
Before you upload your gradebook into your Ultra course, you must download the exact gradebook first. See directions above.
Note: your grades are still not posted in your course. Edit the assignment to adjust its maximum points, category, and other assignment details.

Tips for Uploading
Save your grade center spreadsheet as a CSV file.
Large files take significant time to process and a warning message appears for files that need extra time to process. To avoid long processing times, break up large files into separate uploads.
Any file you upload that contains an "Incomplete" for a grade entry will be set to null, with no grade or text displayed.
Any file you upload that contains "Complete" for a grade entry will be set to an override grade of the maximum points possible (100% for a grade item) in a column that has the primary display of Complete/incomplete.
Any file you upload that contains a numeric entry will be a numeric entry.
