The Race Director

If you time cross-country races using The Race Director, there are two methods for uploading results and scores. You can either produce an HTML file or a CSV file to be read by's uploader.

Export HTML File

From the Reports menu, choose Reports.

Under Type of Report, choose Team Reports, and then select Cross Country Finish List from Select Report to Run.

Select the divisions you'd like to export from the list. To select more than one division, hold down CTRL while clicking on each item in the list. Note that Create Export File is unchecked. Next, click Run Report.

On the next screen, select HTML, and then click Generate Report. Don't choose HTML - Enhanced.

Save the HTML report to an appropriate location.

After you've saved the file you've created, you'll be prompted to view or publish the file you just created. Choose Yes.

If you are asked if you'd like to publish the file to any kind of remote server, choose No unless you are using such a server to display the results.

The next prompt will ask you if you'd like to view the HTML file. Choose Yes

Your computer will open a web browser which will display the results HTML file. Use the Select All (CTRL+A) and then copy the highlighted text into the Paste Results section of the results uploader.

Be sure to use the Preview Matches button in the uploader to ensure that all lines in the file were parsed. Sometimes a long name will not have enough spaces after it and will cause the parser to ignore the line, like in the example below. The gray line indicates an un-parsed result.

If this occurs, simply insert two spaces after the name that causes the problem, and re-paste the results into the uploader. You should end up with something like the following example:
