|Most swim software packages (Championship Technolgies, Easy Meet, Sams, etc) support the
US Swimming defined SDI (standard data interchange) file format. The current version is
now call SDI verion 3 and files in this format have the .SD3 extension by convention.
|We can export entries and import results from either Team program in SDI format.
|We can also import these entry files and export SDI result files from LSA SwimMeet.
|Software from Hy-Tek does support SDI, but also more publicly provides a pseudo-SDI
format complete with a proprietary checksum. These files have a .cl2 extension and are
usually called cfile01.cl2, etc. Users of 1999 Hytek programs should use the SD3
files we produce: they have been checked and are compatible according the that vendor's
experts. Contact LSA for details.
|We can export SDI files which can be read by 1998-99 versions of Commlink.
|We can also import Commlink entry files and export result files from LSA SwimMeet into a
file acceptable to CommLink.
|Hytek has indicated that they will continue to provide SD3 support
in future versions although they may drop Commlink for a encoded proprietary format.
|The current version of LSA SwimMeet, 5.7 and LSA SwimTeam Pro, 6.2 , support these
improvements. As always, you can download the updates
from the LSA web site.
