Import Athletes for Swimming
|Top Previous Next|
This is a great feature for moving athlete administrative information from a TEAM MANAGER or MEET MANAGER Swimming database into your T&F TEAM MANAGER database.
From the T & F TEAM MANAGER Main Menu Bar, click on File then Import then Athlete Roster for Swimming. TFTM will first ask you to select the Drive, Directory, and File Name of the file you wish to Import. If the athlete file is on a diskette, put the diskette into your Drive A and select A from the Windows Open dialog box. TFTM will select all the files with the following file extensions - HY3 from a Swim TM or MM database. Pick the one you wish to import and click on OK.
If you selected a ZIP file, TFTM will unzip that file into a temporary directory named ZipTemp and then ask you to choose from the list of files that were extracted.
Check the Data
After you have selected the file you wish to Import, TFTM will read the file and make various integrity checks. These checks are important because you do not want to import "bad data". At the conclusion of the data integrity checks, TFTM will display information about the file that was selected including who created the file and when it was created.
Ready To Import
At this point in the process, TFTM is ready to import Athletes and integrate them into your TFTM Database. You have the option to "overlay" existing administrative information about an athlete as well as the Athlete Team Group/Subgroup/School Year information. TFTM will also ask you to choose which team in your TFTM Database to use to assign the new athletes to. If this is a new TFTM database, you will have to set up a team first before continuing with this import.
You will be notified if TFTM was not able to import all of the data in the selected file and then be given the option to review a list of the information that was not imported and the reason why it was not imported.
