Import British Swimming OnLine Entries
|Top Previous Next|
If you are running a meet where entries are entered using British Swimming's OnLine Entry system, then you will be downloading a file from the British Swimming site that can be imported by MM. There is one file for individual events and another file for relay events.
•To import each file, the meet events must first be setup in MM.
•After events are setup, click on File / British Swimming OnLine Entries. MM will ask you to specify where the entry file resides and so you find it on your hard drive and open it. The data will be imported and you will receive a report of how many teams, athletes, and entries were imported. If some entries were not imported, an exception report will appear and list those entries not imported.
•British Swimming has assigned specific team names, short team names, and team abbreviations for each club. MEET MANAGER has a copy of the clublist.csv file and uses it to verify the team name and 4 character team code are correct. When exporting results back to the British Swimming rankings database, it is important that these names and codes match what British Swimming has assigned. You can download the latest clublist.csv from the ASA web site.
