Hi, The example you give is where the code would not run. That is a another matter entirely. What happens in that case is that if the marker can see a ready solution, then they'll implement the fix, run the code against the tests, but deduct 2 marks, as that would otherwise be a free kick. For the first part, the only file you will see will contain the data you see (and the columns that you exect. Of course, we can ask a range of questions on that data. Makes sense? Cheers MichaelW
