This tab is in the Database tab.
The Checks tab allows you to check the database for data entry errors and constraint violations.
To check the database, select a value for the desired Meet and, where applicable, for the desired Event number:
To check events in all meets in the database, leave the Meet blank. To check events in a specific Meet, select the Meet.
To check all events in a Meet, leave the Event number blank.
To check one event, enter the number of that event into the Event number field.
To check multiple events, enter the numbers of all desired events into the number field, separated by commas or spaces, and select the IN operator from the operator choices (between the "Event#" label and the Event number text entry field) for the Event number.
On the right hand side of the form, push the button to run the desired check. Problems are displayed in the Query Results output tab. If no problems are found, only the header row will be displayed, but there will be no data rows displayed.
You can run the following checks:
Registrations - checks to make sure that people are registered, paid up, have signed a waiver, and have an unexpired membership. Does not use the Events selection.
Names - checks to make sure that names have no leading or trailing spaces and are not in all lower case; checks for duplicate names both within one team and across teams. This check can only be used when no Meet has been selected.
Genders - checks to make sure that people are not entered into events for the opposite gender.
Levels - checks to make sure that people are not entered into events for which they are too young or too old.
Groups - checks for errors in entries to group events: too many or too few people in a group, too many alteranates, group or alternate specified for a non-group event, no group specified for a group event, group name with leading or trailing spaces.
Entries vs. Lanes - checks for consistency between Entries and Lanes, such as Lane assignments for a group which are not all in the same Lane.
Concurrent Race Lanes - checks to make sure that the same Lane is not assigned in two Races which are in the same Area at the same Schedule Start Time.
Max Entries Per Person - checks to make sure that each person is not entered in more than the specified number of events in one meet, not including alternate entries. Enter the maximum allowed number in the text field, then press the button.
Max Alternates Per Person - checks to make sure that each person is not entered as an alternate in more than the specified number of events in one meet. Enter the maximum allowed number in the text field, then press the button.
This is a different check from the maximum number of alternates per event, which is defined in the Competitions tab and checked by the Groups check.
