Converting OE2010 Results files to OE 2003 Format
The following has been provided by Norm Johnston of the ACT
Aconversion program to process ACT results for the OACT web site. At this stage it will convert OE2010 single day results files to OE2003 format. It will do the normal results and splits files. The OE2010 files must be CSV and in the format recommended by the OA results instructions.
The file is called "OE Results Format" and is available as a zip file from the url below.
If you want to use it unzip it into a folder, there are about 10 files. The exe file is "OE Results format.exe" and it has been found that it works under XP, Vista and Win 7 but, if you have problems there are some other files in the folder that you may need to install. It has a Help file and there is a text file that shows how to get it to run it. N.B. it does not need any installation via Windows. It is easier if you create a shortcut to the exe file. There are some data files that are necessary but related to ACT venues and names, just ignore them.
It would be very simple to do the conversion in Excel via a macro except that you come up against the problem of the times getting mucked up when the csv file is saved, a problem that is well known.
