Edit List

This import is most­ly used in con­junc­tion with a spread­sheet edi­tor like Excel. Try export­ing an edit list from SportsCode and look at its structure.

Note that Excel might insert hid­den char­ac­ters, so use the export as tab delim­it­ed file if cre­at­ing an edit list in excel.

The file to be import­ed must be tab delim­it­ed file with the fol­low­ing columns in order and includ­ed as the first line:

  • start time
  • end time
  • cat­e­go­ry
  • Nth instance
  • #descrip­tors
  • descrip­tors…

The start time and end time must be in 00:00:00:00 for­mat. These columns set the start and end time for the instance.

The cat­e­go­ry col­umn rep­re­sents the time­line row.

Nth instance is the num­ber of the instance in the row.

# descrip­tors indi­cates how labels are in the instance.

descrip­tors… are the label names that are in the instances. The amount should match the # descrip­tors and each label should be sep­a­rat­ed by a tab.

Each instance must be on a sep­a­rate line.
