Wizard CSV files are data files containing the header information from
Since supplying the Wizard on the Internet at everyrace.com, we have had
a number of requests to provide the information as Microsoft Excel spreadsheets.
The requests have come from users who have developed selection systems
in Excel and other spreadsheet packages, and are after an easier method
of entering the Wizard data into these system.
A CSV file, or comma delimited file as they are sometimes called, is an
industry standard file format for tranferring data. They can be used by
a variety of programs, including all spreadsheets, such as Excel. An example Wizard CSV file for Randwick can be found here
The Wizard CSV files contain all the information that is currently in
the Wizard Header, the Wizard
Panel and the Jockey/Run Style Panel.
Purchasing Wizard CSV
The Wizard CSV files are another type of Wizard Direct file for a meeting.
Simply include the Wizard CSV files in the list of Wizard Direct files
you wish to purchase for a day.
Saving Wizard CSV files
After purchasing a Wizard CSV file you will be taken to the file screen
where you will have links to any Wizard Header or Wizard Form purchased
as well as links to the Wizard CSV files. RIGHT click on the Wizard CSV
file link and then choose the option to "Save Target As". Select
a location on your computer and save the file.
Using Wizard CSV files in Excel
To use a Wizard CSV file, run Excel, select "File|Open" and
change the "files of type" to Text File (*.txt,*.prn, *.csv).
Find the Wizard CSV file you downloaded and open it. Once open, we recommend
that you save the file as an Excel Spreadsheet by selecting "File|Save
as" and changing the file type to "Excel Workbook", rather
than keeping it as a CSV file. Alternately, double clicking on a CSV file
in Windows Explorer will generally open the file in Excel.
Wizard CSV files are intended for experienced computer
users who require a fast means of getting wizard information into Excel.
The staff at everyrace.com cannot provide any support on the use of these
files. If you have questions we suggest posting these questions in the
Wizard Forum so that other Wizard CSV users can help you in their use.
