I downloaded some sd3 files from here (South East Regional Championships) - - unfortunately, they do not (appear to) use HyTek so no "normal" results zip file with cl2 & hy3 files.

They downloaded OK into Team Manager, although it didn't seem to cope with heat and final time for the same event.

I looked through all the documents I have managed to gather from this forum, (particularly!searchin/sdif-forum/sd3/sdif-forum/60WpYBNa8FE/fRGGtepL-ggJ) but none of them seem to describe the format of these files.

Below is a sample:

C18        ZZDORSDorking                       Dorking                                                                                                          
C28        ZZDORS                                                                                                                                              
Xxxxxx, Xxx                 123456          0921200114MM  501    UNOV0430201600:26.85L                  00:26.65L                                    
Xxxxxx, Xxx                 123456          0921200114MM  501    UNOV0430201600:26.65L                  00:26.84L                                    

I would assume the D3 line is something to do with the fact that this swimmer competed in a heat and a final. Where they didn't, the D3 line does not exist.

Does anyone have the sd3 file defined?

I am quite pleased with myself that I've managed to read and import meet event files (ev3), but the results files look way more complicated!!

This is the best (easiest to read) version of the SDIF specification I am aware of.


The original USA Swimming specification is painful to read as it little more than an ASCII file formatted with spaces.
