Export Advancers

Top  Previous  Next

Choose this option to export Advancers to be imported into another MM Database. Advancers are results from one meet converted into entries for the next level meet, such as "advancing" athletes and relays from a High School Regional Meet to the State meet.


From the Main Menu Bar, click on File / Export / Advancers.




Follow these steps to complete the export.


1.Select which events you wish to use for the advancement or click on Select All to choose all the events in your meet. You can filter the event list using the filter choices shown above.
2.Specify the Top How Many to export for each event.  For example, you might want to export the top 3 finishers in each event. Or, you may specify a range of qualifiers to export such as 4th through 6th. This might be used for a situation where 8 qualifying meets advance to the Championship with the top 3 and next best 10 times from the 4th through 6th finalists in each of the 8 qualifying meets.
3.Specify the Maximum Qualifiers for each event or leave this entry blank for no maximum.
4.Indicate if you wish to export Relay Athlete names.
5.Indicate if you wish to include Results that meet the Qualifying Standards listed.  For example, you might want to advance the top 2 finishers plus anyone else that swam the State Qualifying Time.
6.If this is a Prelims/Finals meet, indicate whether you wish to export each qualifier's best time from prelims and finals or just the finals time.
7.If advancing based only on a time standard, check the appropriate time standard. You have the option to enter a number for "Maximum Qualifiers per Event" if there are automatic qualifiers, but you can leave it blank if none are automatic.
8.You have three choices on what times to use as the entry time.  If you check the box for Select best time from finals only, MM will only look at finals times and advance anyone who made a qualifying time in finals. If you check the box for Select best time from finals and prior rounds, MM will search all results for qualifiers and advance anyone who made a qualifying time in any round. If you want to include Entry Times in the mix, check the box for Select best time from finals, prior rounds, and entry time.


Click on Export and MM will export those advancers based on the criteria you specified to a file. If only 1 event is exported, the event number is added to the export file name. You would then Email that file to the meet host running the next level meet to import into their MM Database - no keying errors or mistakes.
