Import Merge Entries File

Top  Previous  Next

Select this Import option to import a HY-TEK HY3 entries file that was exported from another computer running MM 6.0.  The export file contains meet entries from another MM 6.0 Database that are to be "merged" with your Master Database.


The typical scenario for this type of situation would be having two or more volunteers doing the entries for a large meet on different computers. One computer would be designated the Master, and after the events and sessions were set up on that one computer, a Backup of that Master Database would be loaded into each of the other computers doing the entries. After the entries were completed, each of the computers doing the entries would export those entries to diskette.  Then each of those entry diskettes would be imported into the Master database.


Another scenario - you may want to merge entries from two MM Databases that have been prepared by each team for a Dual meet.  The Export will offer you the option of including the Heat and Lane assignments set up by either or both teams so the heat and lane will be included when imported.


From the Main Menu Bar, click on File / Import / Merge Entries (MM To MM).  MM will then import the entries that were exported from another MM Database.  MM will match on Event Number since these entries would be merged based on the same meet setup. If event numbers in the exported database do not match the event numbers in the import database, then do not use Merge Entries, but rather use the standard Import Entries.
