  • The ID field is the unique ID for this Site. The default ID prefix is SS.

  • The Simplan field is the Simplan to which this record applies.

  • The Stage field is the Stage to which the section count applies.

  • The Sections field is the number of sections of the specified Stage to be created for this plan.

  • The Fill Order field tells the order in which the sections in this stage are filled for a draw or progression. The choices are list here, each with an example showing the section ordering for that Fill Order whem there are four sections. order of sections used w

    • SEQ = Sequential: fill up the section before moving on to the next one. 1,1,1,1,..., 2,2,2,2,..., 3,3,3,3,..., ...

    • SEQ_SEQ = Sequential/Sequential: same as SEQ, but fill the lanes within each section in sequential order as well (the lanes specified in the Lane Order are sorted).

    • RR = Round Robin: 1,2,3,4, 1,2,3,4, 1,2,3,4, ...

    • SNAKE = Snake (or serpentine; boustrophedonic) 1,2,3,4, 4,3,2,1, 1,2,3,4, 4,3,2,1, ...

    • ZZ = Zig-Zag (like Round Robin but offset by one on each pass): 1,2,3,4, 2,3,4,1, 3,4,1,2, 4,1,2,3, 1,2,3,4, ...
