Export Best Marks
|Top Previous Next|
There may be a situation where you wish to Export Best Marks from your TFTM Database to another TFTM Database. For example, you may want to set up a new TFTM Database either for a new season or for a new coach that is handling a specific group of Athletes. Or, you might want to export Best Marks filtered by a specific Team or Group for a new Team that is just setting up its Database.
NOTE: The Best Mark Export will include ONLY athletes who have results. If you want to move ALL of your athletes from one TFTM Database to another, first use the Export Athletes/Teams, and then bring over your Best Marks.
From the T & F TEAM MANAGER Main Menu Bar, click on File then Export then Best Marks. If you plan on mailing or taking this information to another computer, specify Drive A as your Export Drive. If you want to e-mail the information, specify any directory on your hard drive as the Export Drive/Directory.
You must choose a venue: either Indoors or Outdoors. You can specify if you want to include Relays in your exported file. Customize the Athlete filter choices by Gender, Team, Group, Subgroup, and School Year or leave these filter choices blank to include ALL athletes. You can also choose to include InActive athletes in this export.
When you click OK, TFTM will build one export file containing the exported information. This is a HY-TEK Sports Software Data Interchange File with a file extension of TCL. TFTM will then ZIP this file using the following naming convention:
where "TTTTTTT" is the Team Abbreviation and "xxx" is a sequential number beginning with "001". For example, if the meet results are for the Team "NATC", the exported file name would be
