How do I extract my results from ACBLScore?

These instructions will step you through how to extract the results for your game that are suitable for submitting to your club website.

For each step there will be a screen shot of where you should be if you completed the step properly as a link that pops up. Just close it when you are done to return to these instructions.

On your computer that has ACBLScore installed, open up the ACBLScore program. (It should look like this.)
Choose the menu option that opens a game. See pic.
Open the gamefile associated with the results you wish to post. See pic.
Press the F8 key. You will be prompted to "Select scores destination." See pic.
Choose "ASCII file". Newer versions of ACBLScore will say "Text file" instead of "ASCII file". You will then be prompted to choose a file location. See pic.
Either continue with the default or choose a directory location that you will remember later. For the File Name, it is best to call it "RESULTS.TXT" or some similar name. See pic.
If the file you named exists already, it will prompt you to either Append or Overwrite the existing file. If this is not a multiple section event, you will likely want to Overwrite the file. See pic.
You will be prompted to "Select printout order". See pic.
Choose "By rank" generally, unless your club has a different preference. Your results are now saved.
If you wish to exit ACBLScore, you use the 'Esc' (escape) key twice.
