Key the data in manually, or copy and paste from an Excel output file on another program. These were designed primarily to fill a small need where groups had virtually no scheduling software to work with.
That is way too kind! Thank you. I get a kick out of those of you who can use it. I've sent off copies to many different parts of the world. And that is quite interesting in itself. Not ultra-sophisticated programming, I admit. But... it's free!
I think I played around with that prog before. Whilst is was very good, it did not do a couple of things we need. However, it did inspire one of our guys to do a spreadsheet that gives us those things, so it was all good.
The next step is to make a timing prog that can do all this kind of thing to. We love Trackmate from the timing point of view but for race management progs like it are woefully short of the sophistication we need.
I use Trackmate also for timing on my layout. It handles the race timing and organization very well and even schedules the heats for you. We nearly always use the timed round-robin mode for 3-minute heats.
I often get inspired and get ideas by seeing how other folks do their Excel programming. And the very best software program, of course, is one designed for your own specific needs. For example, I'm working on a sheet now for our club that tracks scores plus bonus points for different classes for a racing season, and allows the user to select the number of top scores it tallies, as our racers will be allowed to drop a number of low scores or races missed in the series.
I'm adding another Excel based free sheet for interested racers here in the forum. This one allows you to enter up to 24 races and 4 separate classes. We're using it for a year-long series in our local club. It gives class totals as well as overall totals...
As with the others, just PM me with your email address, and ask for Series Score Excel sheet!
