BASEBALL SCOREBOOK FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs)

1.  I misspelled a player's name in one game and now the cumulative stats list the player twice.  How do I fix this ?

2.  I hit the "Next inning" button too many times at the end of the game.  Each time I hit "next inning" the software created a new inning.  So in a game with 5 innings of data, I have 4 additional innings with no data.  How do I delete these innings with no data in them?

3.  I was scoring a girls softball game that went into extra innings.  When the visiting team came up in the top of the 8th, they sent the last batter that was out in the 7th inning to 2nd base.  Since she was recorded as out (in the 7th inning) and the scoring software moved on to the next batter in the lineup for the 8th inning, I was not able to add her to the 8th inning scoring.  Is there a way to get around this problem?

4.  Is it possible to export the roster from a game file into a team file?

5.   Is there a way to save the scoresheet to a PDF file ?

6.   How do you get complete stats for all the games together?



1.  I misspelled a player's name in one game and now the cumulative stats list the player twice.  How do I fix this ? 

ANSWER
You'll need to edit the games that do not have the correct spelling for your player and modify that player's name.   To do this, from the desktop software, select 'File : Game : Edit'.   Select the game file and 'Start' button.   Once the game is displayed, select 'File : Team : Edit' and select the team your player is on.   From the team dialog, select 'Edit Roster'.   Modify the player's name and select the 'Update Player' button.   Select 'ok' to save the roster and 'ok' to save the team.   The game should now have the new spelling for your player -- and the names will match in cumulative stats.

To prevent this from happening again, make sure your player's name is spelled correctly in your Team file before using that team file in a new game.


2.  I hit the "Next inning" button too many times at the end of the game.  Each time I hit "next inning" the software created a new inning.  So in a game with 5 innings of data, I have 4 additional innings with no data.  How do I delete these innings with no data in them?

ANSWER
Edit your game and select an at bat in an inning prior to the last inning.   From the menu, select 'Edit : Delete Last Inning'.   Repeat this until all of the blank innings are removed.

ANSWER
In the software, select 'next at bat' until you reach the player that received the last out in the previous inning.  Select 'On Base' : 'International Tie Breaker Rule 2nd'.   This will place the player on 2nd -- select 'next at bat' and record the rest of the game.    The extra at bats will not cause any problems in the stats.

4.  Is it possible to export the roster from a game file into a team file?

ANSWER
Yes.  The program saves a copy of each team in the game files -- so, this is how you can extract the teams from a game :
Open the game file - 'file : game : edit' and select 'start'.   With the game file opened, select 'File : Team : Edit' and select the team.   From the team edit dialog, select 'Save As' and save to a .TEM or .CSV file.  


5.  Is there a way to save the scoresheet to a PDF file ?

ANSWER
Yes.   We recommend using pdf995 (www.pdf995.com).  When installed, it is used just like another printer attached to your computer only the output is directed to a PDF file.    Before you print, select the 'Printer Setup' button.  From the setup dialog, select the 'Printer' button -- then, select 'PDF995' as your printer;  'Ok', 'Ok' and 'Print'.   Here's a sample output : sample.pdf


6.  How do you get complete stats for all the games together ?

ANSWER
On the desktop software, without a game loaded, select 'Statistics : Team and Player Stats'.   From the game selection dialog, select multiple games.   After the games are selected, select your team from the team drop-down list and then 'Ok'.
