John, I apologize for not getting back to you sooner... I tried what you told me, it didn't work. Ill start off by telling you what I did, maybe that can get me where I need to be...

I downloaded a meet that I created from milesplit, used racetab to seed it. used the seeding to create a performance list and then copied that list to a word doc to send to the other coaches and to run the meet from. we used a hand timing device. I then took the hand timed results and manually wrote them into racetab under the "events" tab. I then scored the meet, and tried to find results. I have since rescored the meet and still when I preview the results to print them, its completely blank.
