Database Utilities

  • Compact DB - to compress your database folder
  • View/Change DBFolder - to 'point' to a different database folder.
    You can have multiple databases in different folders.

Backup/Restore

    - right click to copy your database files to another location.
  • Restore Backup - to restore a previously saved backup
  • Restore Size - all screens can be resized by dragging the borders.
    Click this button to restore all screens to their default sizes.

Screen Size

  • Most screens can be resized by dragging the borders. The change is saved.
  • 'Adjust Size' changes the size of ALL SCREENS by the percentage chosen.
  • 'Restore Size' changes ALL SCREENS back to their default size.

Master Files

  • Pilots - to maintain the 'Pilots' masterfile (click Pilots tab for details)
  • Export Pilots - to create a file Pilots.csv with all pilot data.
    This file can be used to import pilots into another database.
  • Import Pilots - to bulk import Pilot names and other data from a file named C:\GliderScore6\Pilots.csv.
    Two proforma files, PilotsComma.csv and PilotsSemiColon.csv are included with the full program download.
    There is information in the ReadMe.txt file about how to use this facility.
  • Landings - to maintain the 'Landings' masterfile (click Landings tab for details)
  • Roles - to maintain the 'Roles' masterfile (click Roles tab for details)
  • Country Codes
    This table holds all country codes as determined by the International Olympic Committee.
    The FAI uses the same codes. When adding a country code to a pilot's record, one of these codes must be used.
  • QRCode Setup
    This is where you specify data to be encoded when using QRCodes on Score Cards.
    QRCodes are useful when using smartphones to gather scores. Third party software is required to do this.
    If entering scores manually, there is no need to do anything here.
    If using GliderScore's eScoring, you need to click the 'Reset for eScoring' button.

Select Language

  • It is possible to run GliderScore in a language other than English.
    Use the drop down box to select a different language (if installed).
    See the Translate tab for more details.
