I recently had a report from a user regarding a problem importing a HYV event file. This event file was using Event Numbers with a one character suffix (in their case A-J). I didn’t know using a character suffix was a legal event number and had never encountered one previously.
It turns out it is fairly common, particularly with High School and YMCA teams. Since the database had defined the Event Number as an integer field, adding support for these “suffixes” as I am calling them wasn’t simple.
This build of wp-SwimTeam adds support for non-numeric Event Numbers and needs testing. I have added, updated, imported, and deleted event numbers and all seems to be working correctly. I have also exported SDIF and HY3 entry files which also look correct. However, I would appreciate some testing from someone who is more familiar with these sort of event numbers than I am.
