To validate results against current members in our rankings system. It checks the MRF data file generated by systems that cannot use Lenex.
Sportsystem users and should validate their results data by reading and actioning any error messages in the LenexRank\????MEET.LEF or session file.
This will not validate foreign clubs. To prevent error messages a foreign club should have a letter F as the last digit in the 4 digit code. USAF, FRAF, GERF etc.
Browse to your results files with a MRF extension
Select the file you wish to validate then click on 'Check it'. It will be compared with the British Swimming Database with the results displayed on screen.
Matching is achieved by comparing the Family Name, Given Name, Full Date of Birth and the Official Club Code. If there is a match the swimming registration number, fee paying club and ranked club are displayed. The membership number is not part of the legacy MRF flie so will not be used for the search but will be reported in the results.
The file should not be sent to rankings until all records are green. A failure to do this may result in the data being rejected until validated data is presented.
