Importing MyRacePass Assignments in MyLaps Orbits

This article documents how to import assignments from MyRacePass into MyLaps Orbits and assumes that the user has already downloaded the assignments to the local machine using MRP Live. If you have not yet downloaded assignments from MyRacePass using MRP Live, see the article documented here

Overview of Assignments Files

In Orbits mode, MRP Live will produce four types of files. The file types created can be enabled and disabled in Advanced Settings.

Groups - This is a single file named Groups.xml which contains all the groups in an event.

Runs - This is a single file named Runs.xml which contains all the runs in an event.

Competitors - This is a single file named All Competitors.txt which contains all competitors entered in an event.

Competitors by Class - This creates a file for each class in an event containing all competitors entered in a particular class. The filename will include the class name, for example: Street Stocks Competitors.txt.

Race Management however treats the transponder numbers as text and will preserve the leading zeroes, but when importing the results will treat the transponder numbers as numbers so that the import is successful.
