In Topic: Draft Buddy Problem?

09 September 2018 - 05:56 AM

Bob, thanks for the work on this. I will take a look at that .xls version more closely. I did run into a problem this year with my new Windows computer (which I was way overdue for). The new Windows computer ran old Excel, but the copy of Draft Buddy had problems for people who used that version... this is way back near the start of June So I scrapped it and created a new file from the old Windows computer, which was still kicking around. All appeared to be good with that one, and I didn't hear of any real issues with it until you presented me with this one. There was little reason for some of the conditional formatting to be missing, since I still started with last year's version, but the conditional formatting can be very finicky and just "disappear" at times. Sorry for the trouble you had with this.


In Topic: Is there a way to use Draft Buddy to upload League on an MFL site

09 September 2018 - 05:49 AM

There is no direct way (good idea), but I've added rosters successfully to the one local league I commish two different ways:

 

1. Start a live draft and as commissioner go in and make all the picks. Sorting players by ADP, this really didn't take me too long. Probably 10 minutes. The thing I like about this option is it keeps the draft history.

 

2. Haven't done this one in a few years since I like option 1, but there used to be a spot in the commish setup to import rosters by picking a team and inputting player names into a large text box. You could do that by copying the names from the rosters tab, one team at a time, and pasting them in the box and submitting. Might be one or two not recognizable (team D, rookies perhaps), which you then adjust and try again or select and add later.

Check that calculation is set to Automatic, Bob. Old Excel... lets see... I think it is Tools > Options > Calculation, select Automatic. Did that update it? Or try F10 (on Windows) to force calculation. If they are greying out on one tab they really should on the others.
