Scores may also be imported when the bowling is still in progress.  The following section gives more information on importing scores.

The following options affect how scores are imported:

·Remove scores before importing:  Selecting this option will erase scores currently entered and import scores from the front desk.

·Don’t erase scores:  Maintains scores currently entered and will replace scores found from the front desk.

·Ask before overwriting:  Same as above, but will prompt before replacing existing scores.

·Keep existing scores:  Selecting this option will keep existing scores entered and bring in only the new scores.

Ignore ID numbers

Select to ignore the bowler ID#’s used during the import process and import scores based on bowler’s name.

Error Log

After scores are imported, an error file is generated. This error file will show any problems or issues that need attention before calculating results.

Typically, scores will appear in the error log due to a bowler being added at the lanes who was not originally registered to bowl on this pair of lanes. This can either be a real bowler who is new or a current member who has mistyped their name or entered the wrong ID#.

Also, appearing in the error log can be absentee scores that are incorrectly entered.

Use this report to manually entering or correcting scores.
