John B Caulfield replied to Bruce Robert Taylor's discussion JD not scoring points and places correctly, Can this PLEASE be Fixed before Friday?
"Instead of putting placing in the JD field try putting in the placing directly into the position field, other possible solutions are to fill out the series for the event or fill out the tie breaker field for each jumper."

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.
