The event advanced options include access to the properties of the event.

Select the properties button to see the event properties screen.

AdvancedEventTab

All the other options allow you to make global changes to, or manage the organisation of the entire outright event field of players.

 

Zero scores

All the scores in the event field are reset to zero. A re-score of the event will calculate the scores anew.

 

Totals b/f

Copy the final scores from another event to the field as brought forward. All pairs in the source event are copied to the current event, with their total scores carried forward as the brought forward scores of the current event.

 

A screen is presented to select the event from which the scores are to be copied. Only the pairs existing in the current event and having pair numbers the same as the source event are processed. No new pairs are introduced to the current event.

 

Copy c/f

The carried forward scores may be entered on the ranking list found in the Event MPs option under the [5 Results] tab. They would have been entered previously when working on the qualifying event.

 

Using this option these carry forward scores are copied to the current event file as brought forward scores. The pair numbers found in the ranking list are used to match up with the pair numbers in the current event. The players and pair numbers are not copied with this option.

 

Note: the carried forward scores are generally not the same as the pairs total score in the prior event. Where the total scores are required, use the [Totals b/f] option above.

 

This function is quite often used in conjunction with function [Copy field] below. All the pairs are copied from the event file with zero scores, then the carried forward scores are obtained from the ranking list of the same event using this function.

 

Copy field

All pairs in the source event are copied to the current event, with zero as the brought forward scores for the current event.

 

A screen is presented to select the event from which the pairs are to be copied.

 

Save field

Save the event field on a text file.

 

This function saves all the pairs/teams of the current event onto a text format file. This file may be built and modified external to the ASE Scorer. It is the same file that is used in the Load field function below.

 

Note: the player numbers used are the national numbers. Players without national numbers are not written to the file.

Load Field

Load the event field from a prior text file save, or edit session.

 

All pairs in the source event text file save (created using the Save field option immediately above) are copied to the current event. This text file may have been changed (using a text editor) before using this load event option.

 

The pairs loaded in this way are given pair numbers in sequence from the next available pair number in the current event. Where there are no pairs in this event, the pairs loaded will have the same pair numbers as in the original event.

 

Delete field

Delete all pairs in the event field.

 

All the pairs in the event file are removed. The pairs in each session of the event remain intact. Therefore where the pairs in the sessions have "event numbers", a re-score of the event will automatically rebuild the event pairs file.

 

Qualifiers

This option is only used when selectively moving pairs from a qualifying event to one or more finals events. See the field management screen for details on using this option.
