I'm looking to create a sailwave file from importing from an html file - is that possible?  If so, can someone point me in the right direction please?

I've done it in the past by using Excel (other spreadsheets are available). Paste the web page into excel and save it as csv which will go straight into Sailwave.

Thanks for the tip, but whenever I try that I get an "Access Denied" message??

Sounds like Excel file locking. Make sure you've closed the file in Excel - better still exit Excel completely - before you try the import into Sailwave.

I created a template with all our Club info, scoring and codes.  Open it and do a SAVE AS, Then I import the competitors list (csv from regatta network), change a few dates.
All the old people (I'm 64) think it is magic that I have it ready in less than 10 minutes. I just wait for the race data from the RC and then the finish times.
the only HTML I deal with tis the results.
