    Or possibly of this most recent Olympiad from 2009-2012 . . .

        Yes, equivalency is critical which is why avoiding data reentry when consolidating is important.

        The participants are best placed to spell correctly, especially for lesser known athletes, so flowing their typed entries straight into the consolidation as described in my earlier post give the best chance for success.

        Of course, there still needs be double checking for stuff like Kirzenstein vs Szewinska but you can minimise this with naming conventions.

        mump, here's a link to an Excel tutorial with screen images, which shows you how easy it is

          Thank you, El Toro. Mump is not the only one that could hone his Excel skills. I will certainly go over it.

            My Excell skills need more than 'honing' they are non existant ops:

                  I've already started making my list....and will PM you with it when done.....but not to worry.....I'm American, but 3 of the first names I thought of are "foreigners"!!!

                  And while I'm a HUGE fan of female T&F, my first few names have been all male!!
                  But that will change!!

                  Also, unlike some of you "elites" ( :P ), I've met some big names in the sport....but don't have any as friends, close or not, so that won't prejudice my thinking!!

                  (For "gh", that will probably be a HUGE problem!!!)

                  Anyway, you'll receive my PM shortly!!

                    What the hell is this??

                    I looked at this thread's title...and just assumed (never assume!!!!!) it was a BRAND NEW thread!!!
                    Then...AFTER I PM'ed you my list....I saw this started in 2011...and that there were 39 pages of comments!!!

                    So what's the deal??
                    Is this just a continuation of the 2011 poll?
                    A new one for 2012?/

                    And what's the deal with taking names OFF the list...just because they've gotten only one vote??
                    Do new entries have to first check to see if it's okay to vote for somebody before putting their name on their list??

                    To hell with that!!
                    I gave you my list a few minutes ago...and it includes MARY CAIN....who is probably on NO ONE ELSE'S list!!!!!

                    If ALL of my names aren't included on the final list......of ALL the names....then please remove my entry from your game!!!

                    And make the rules easier to follow!!
                    And please make sure EVERYONE KNOWS this is NOT a brand new thread....but something started about a year ago!!!!

                        As I recall every vote was sacred, all the one voters were counted, even those with no votes were mentioned. The final list is here: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=45258&start=1480#p749688
