There are two places where ECF grading files can be created:
- From Admin/ECF Grade File
- Select an event, then tab ECF Grade File
- Excel format grading file. This has the advantage that it is readable so you can modify easily in Excel. The disadvantage is that you must open it in Excel and then save it. Otherwise if fails the ECF checker program.
- The .TXT format grading file. This can be fed straight into the checker program.
The View Grading Data button just shows the data what would be placed in the file if the Generate Grading File is pressed.
Grader - The user whos details should be put on the ECF grading spreadsheet as being the grader for this event. This defaults to the person currently logged in.
Submission number - This should be 1, for the first file you submit for an event (eg a mid season January grades file) and increase for subsequent files. Files with higher submission numbers overwrite all results for previous files. This means that you don't need to worry if some results have already been submitted earlier on. Also it allows errors to be corrected.
Treasurer - this is the email address of the person who will be contacted for game fee for people who are not ECF members.
