IMPORTANT: There is no â€˜undoâ€™ key when writing worksheets. Make sure that you save often while you are working. With a match open Click: Advanced Analysis | Worksheet | New *You will not be able to access this without a match open. I recommend you open a new, blank match because testing and processing the worksheet will be faster and easier.
The first thing we will go over is how to use Work-ups. Work-ups allow you to use the worksheet for multiple rosters without having to make changes to the worksheet itself.
Right click in a cell in column B or higher (you need one blank column to the left) Choose work up, then Insert Work Up cells.
Choose home team for your first workup. Develop the work up by player, choose vertical, you will want to add macro and shift cells down. Hit ok.
This is how your workup will look now. You will start entering formulas into B2
Click in B2 and hit ‘Insert’ on your keyboard. (You can also right click in B2 and hit Wizard Formula)
For the first work-up let’s make a basic hitting worksheet. Double click on Attack. Leave all of these as their default settings. Hit ok, then ok again.
Now you should have this in B2: =<*$$A>
Here is the explanation of this formula: *|Home team $$ | Used to identify the entire team instead of a particular player A | Attack This will give you all hitting attempts for the home team.
Write “Att” in B1 to label that column as all hitting attempts
Save the worksheet – use simple, clear labeling for your worksheets. I named this sheet “Home Hitting Summary – Workup”
As you can see, using the workup function automatically fills in the roster by jersey number. Right click on the worksheet and choose ‘modify’ to get back to the design mode.
Label C1 with “Eff” Click in C2 and hit insert Click yes to include the cell in the work up.
Double click on Attack again, then change the events drop down list to ‘Efficiency’
This is the easiest way to get hitting efficiency, but some people prefer to write the formula out for a couple reasons. Using this wizard formula will produce a % number, while some coaches prefer to see the more traditional .### format.
I will go over how to write the formula shortly. Hit ok, then ok again. Now you have this formula in C2: =<*$$AE> The E stands for efficiency – this formula is for the Home Team’s Hitting efficiency. If you want to write the formula for hitting efficiency out it would be: (Kills – errors – blocked attempts)/Total Attempts In DataVolley code this formula looks like this: = (<*$$A#> - <*$$A=> - <*$$A/>) / <*$$A> Either way will work within the workup (I have used the long version in my worksheet) When you hit process now you should have: Note: if you used the E formula, you would have 0% where I have --under efficiency.
Fill in Cells D2-G2 using the wizard for D2: Unforced Errors E2: Unforced Error % F2: Blocked attempts and G2: Blocked attempts % D2:
Note: If you choose to write the formulas in each cell instead of using the formula wizard it will not automatically link to the work up. If you have cells that you need to manually link to the workup it will look like this: Right click on D2, select work up, then link cell to work up.
Now you have a basic hitting summary for your team. Let’s make it a little more in depth. Insert a new row above row 1 by right clicking on ‘1’ hitting insert cells and choosing row:
Select B1:G1 then click this icon to join the cells. Click yes when this message pops up.
Write “Overall” in Cell B1:G1. These columns will represent the overall hitting numbers for your team. Copy cells B2:G2 and paste in H2:M2 Merge cells H1:M1 and write First Ball Attack. These columns will represent your hitting numbers for the attack after a reception only (first ball swing). So your worksheet should now look like this:
Copy cells B3:G3 and paste in H3:M3 Select cells H3:M3
Click on the Binoculars icon to open the find and replace function. Replace all of the upper case A with lower case r. Make sure that the Range is Selected Cells, then click replace all. r is the code for first ball swing, so:
= <*$$r> is Home team takes a first ball attempt.
Link cells H3:M3 to the workup. Select cells H1:M3. Copy and paste into N1. Merge cells N1:S1 Replace “First Ball Attack” in cell N1:S1 with “Transition” Select Cells N3:S3. Replace “r” with “d” d is the code for transition swing so: = <*$$d> is home team takes a transition swing Link the cells to the workup.
Now you should have:
You should always test your worksheets extensively.
Enter something simple, such as “10A” into the scouting window and hit enter. This should assign both an overall attempt and a transition attempt to the team as well as to #10. Note – this is assigned as a transition attempt because there was no serve or reception. Delete the code you just entered by highlighting that code and hitting your delete key. Then hit control + U to update the database and refresh the worksheet. The worksheet should go back to all zeros. In the scouting window, enter: a10S.1R 10A# and press enter. This should give the team and #10 an overall attempt as well as a first ball swing. It should also adjust the hitting efficiencies of those columns. This should get you off to a good start on making hitting worksheets with work-ups!
