9.929 - 1/29/12
First Release for 2012 - This is an Update to the previous version, not a major upgrade.
1. New Feature:  Using the Sub Setup function from the Setup Menu, you can now import all substitute players records and their adjusted indexes from another league in the database.  You can now import all the subs and their adjusted indexes, for handicap purposes, from one league to another league.  Previously you could only import one sub record at a time from another league.  You can still import one sub at a time, however, you can also, if you desire, import the complete sub list and their scores.  Some leagues have a large number of subs from one year to the next, and this can be a substantial time saver.  The scores posted by the sub from the imported league are used as their most recent Outside Scores, then their previous outside scores are added.  Up to 20 outside scores are imported. A sub can have an initial handicap before playing any rounds in the current league.
2. New Feature:  Allows the option of using Outside Adjusted Scores, for handicap purposes, for league members and/or substitute players separately.  You can use Outside Adjusted Scores, also known as Past Scores, for league members, but not for subs, and visa versa.  Outside Adjusted Scores are scores shot outside the league, either imported or entered manually, that you wish to post for a player or sub for handicap purposes.  You can now use Outside Adjusted Scores for Players and Subs, or either one separately.
3. New Feature:  A New Query Report displays each teams Total Standing Points won by week and total for the year.  The report lists all the teams by name in the first column with each week played in the following columns, and shows the total points toward team standings won for each week, with the total for the year in the last column.  The report can be displayed by period, i.e. as Total Points Year to Date, First Half Points, or Second Half Points. The report can also be Sorted by Total Points, which in effect, gives the standings for the period selected.
4. Several minor bug fixes, and display enhancements.
