Champion Wrestling Stats 4.0 Frequently Asked Questions I enter additional stats but they do not appear on any of my reports. It has come to our attention that there is the potential for problems when backing up your wrestler profiles (stats). Normally back-ups are made to a floppy diskette (Drive A), to a network drive, or to another location on your hard drive.
We suggest backing up to a location other than your hard drive for obvious reasons. If your hard drive fails, you have not only lost your program and stats, but back-ups as well. With version 4.0.2, you have the potential to back up to the location where you installed Champion Wrestling Stats 4.0 (usually C:\CWS40).
This will cause problems with existing stats. You will be able to add additional stats, but any reports will only reflect the back up which you made to C:\CWS40. Make sure when you make back-ups, you DO NOT select the location where you installed Champion Wrestling Stats 4.0.
Before starting a back-up, make sure you place a formatted diskette in Drive A. The program will automatically find the floppy in Drive A:. You can also select another location other than C:\CWS40.
It also important if you ... more. less.
are moving data between home and school or other computers, that you DO NOT restore to C:\CWS40, only C:\CWS40\DATA or the location where your data is found. The program selects the appropriate location by default. Also -- Do not save or restore data to the reports folder (subdirectory) as well!!<br><br> We have corrected this potential problem and have posted an update (Version 4.0.3) on our web site for you to download. Please see DOWNLOADS . We encourage the use of back-ups.<br><br> We recommend you have at least three diskettes in your back-up rotation. Each time you finish entering stats, backup to a different diskette rotating the diskettes each time you enter stats. How do I correct the problem if it happens???<br><br> Please go to My Computer or Explorer and find the location where you installed Champion Wrestling Stats 4.0.

Why does my program crash when I print several reports? There are some printers which are known to have a "memory leak" when used in Windows 95 / 98.<br><br> Several of the HP printers (both laser and ink-jet) experience this problem. The printers use RAM when printing, but do not release it after printing, so that the printers "hog" more and more memory until there is not enough memory left to run the program. The HP Deskjet 1000C has this problem.<br><br> Try the following to correct the problem: 1) Click Start -- Settings -- Printers 2) Double click on your printer 3) From the menu at the top of the window click Printer -- Properties 4) Click the Details Tab -- then click Port Settings 5) Uncheck the item "Check Port State Before Printing" -- then click OK 6) Back in the Details Tab window, click Spool Settings 7) Be sure "Spool print jobs so program finishes printing faster" is checked 8) Be sure "Start printing after first page is spooled" is checked 9) If the "Spool Data Format" setting is EMF, change it to RAW 10) Click OK to return to properties window, then click Apply 11) Click OK to close the properties window Try printing again. If it doesn't work, go back to Spool Settings as above and check "Print directly to printer". If this still doesn't work, call your printer manufacturer -- or go to their web site and download the latest printer driver.<br><br>
