Each Players Starting Table
« on: April 17, 2018, 03:17:32 PM »
Is there any way the program can export, at the tournament's end, each players final position along with the table they began the game with?  I don't care about player movement, final tables, etc. - I simply need to know the table they started at.

(The reason being that our league has grown to be too large, and thus we split the games in two.  Thus, Tables 1-5 play one game, and Tables 6-10 play a separate game.  If I could export the players with simply their name, finish, and starting table, I could then sort based on the table and determine "final rankings" for each game using simple Excel formulas.)

Your help is, as always, appreciated.

Unfortunately no, because the application doesn't keep tracking of starting table, ending table, etc.  Only current table.

You can find the starting table/seat in the Tournament History (press the History button on the Game tab).  But you'd have to collate the data yourself.

I've seen a couple of other posts asking similar questions.  If the data is there, why not include this into the program?

Player seating is recorded in the tournament history at tournament start.  There are preferences to record accepted player movement suggestions and manual player movement in the tournament history, but those are relatively recent additions.

Keep in mind that this is recorded in what is essentially a human readable log, not a program friendly format.  It certainly could be kept, but there has not been, historically, much interest in this.

The problem with the "human readable log" is that, even after the data is exported, I will still have to manually enter each players table to determine which game they are playing.

While adding this would certainly benefit myself and a few others, I have seen numerous posts asking about Shootout tournaments (which I also run), and this would be a definite plus to run and track those type of events.

I hope to this this in a future TD going forward.  I thank you again for the quick response!!
