    Excel Scripting Question.

    I've been fiddling around with Excel for scripting, and am curious about how to format my event time. Would I put 90.0s or would I put 1:30.0s down for the timing? Thanks in advance.

    Excel Scripting Question.

    I believe the safest way is 00:00:00.0s format, I’m sure someone will correct me if I’m wrong. I also believe u can do 0 - infinity in only seconds also

    Cobra Show Creator formats it as 01:30.00s in the excel file it produces.
    If you would like, PM me your email address. I can send you one or several excel files done with Show Creator if you think that would help you.

    Most firing systems use a normal format not cumulative. 0:00:00.00s
    Have you seen The Cobra Scripting Templet?

    Re: Excel Scripting Question.

    Thanks all! What I found as an issue was that my excel was trying to format those cells using the 00:00:00.00 format. When I added the 's' at the end, it seemed to be resolved.

    I am manually entering these times, since I don't have show creator as I might only shoot a few shows per year, but may invest in the next year if this year gets to be too much work.

    Best part about excel scripting using cobra template is you still can use cut/paste functions. So very easy to make multiple item runs and rearrange.
