Any Current Issues with MyPetanque?

We have encountered an issue in early September 2019 concerning the MyEntries files that can be downloaded for any Division from the View Entries screen. These MyEntries files are in the csv (comma separated variable) format, and allow the person using the Sport 6.25 or 6.26 scoring program to Import the registered Entries into an Event.

Sport expects to 'see' a 1, 2 or 3 as the first chartacter of the MyEntries.csv file - for Singles, Doubles or Triples teams, respectviely. The issue (that is still current) is that the downloaded file commences with a 'space' (Hex '20') character that brings up an error when trying to Import the file into Sport.

The solution is to simply Open the MyEntries.csv file with Excel, and then immediately Save it (so overwriting the original file). When you use Excel to Open a file it strips off any leading spaces to cells that contains a number (only).
