ASE Version 7

The file produced from the ASE Scorer Version 6 or 7 NAMES/FILE/SAVE option that produces an ASCII text file is loaded into the current masterfile. If the players already exist in the file they are placed there a second time. It would be unusual to use this option with a members database that is not empty.

 

When the option "Do not add duplicate players" is ticked, the current members database will be updated with the file. Any existing players are updated and new players added to the file.

 

ASE Version 8/9

The file from the ASE Scorer Version 8 "produce CSV file" option (that produces an ASCII comma-separated volume) is loaded into the current masterfile. If the players already exist in the file they are placed there a second time. It would be unusual to use this option with a members database that is not empty.

 

When this file is loaded into a masterfile that is not empty it is important to understand the use of the internal reference numbers within the members' database. All rows in the database have a unique reference number. When the CSV file is loaded into an empty database the original sequence numbers are retained. When the database is not empty, the sequence numbers are all changed and in sequence starting from the next highest number available on the file.

 

See using more than one database for more details on this issue.

 

When the option "Do not add duplicate players" is NOT ticked and there are already players on this file, then the new loaded players will have different sequence numbers. This means events that have been previously scored using the masterfile from where this CSV file was produced will have the wrong names.

ACBL player information

The file produced by the ACBLScore program called "plinfo" will be loaded into your current members masterfile.
