      Additional information

      The purpose of this derived field is to indicate the year an Entry Profile record was supplied to HESA. Entry Profile records are linked to submitted records through the use of the UHN link - the combination of UKPRN, HUSID and NUMHUS fields which together denote a unique student instance.

      9999 is a valid code on the Continuity register for legacy dormant records.

      Technical Specification

      When an Entry Profile is supplied for a continuing student, XEPYEAR01 is populated with a four digit year value based upon the reporting year, regardless of whether or not the elements in the Entry Profile have changed. The value should be the first year of the reporting period, i.e. 2015 for 2015/16.
