When using the historical data entry for debut matches the add new entry feature requires a run score or bowling entry. It will not allow either of them to be left blank eg the player did not bat and/or bowl. The 'oops message' appears on pressing submit.
Would it be possible to allow the runs/bowling entry to be blank or maybe DNB and then enable the debut match to be submitted?
Yes -but if a players first bat or bowl is what gets recorded from both a match scorecard and a historical data entry regardless of whether it is there first ever match or not then it is consistent.
OK so you are talking about just getting the debut Match correct, right?
Thanks Mark - for Historical data I have been entering a players first bat or bowl as the 'on debut' performance. This makes it in line with the report data taken from a match scorecard.
If you entered a single run score of 0, would this not suffice? I know it is not exact, but it is unlikely to show on any reports as far as I can tell.
