DB Editor Issue

Postby dgrawns » Mon Feb 19, 2018 3:59 pm

Hi, when I attempt to edit a value in the DB Editor (Such as Player Height), I cannot change it without the drop down list, and the drop down list goes off my screen so I can't get to the bottom. Thanks.

Export the table to a CSV file and edit it in a spreadsheet editor, such as Microsoft Excel, LibreOffice Calc, or Google Sheets.

Hi RevanFan,

I understand that the method to do this is to export it to a CSV, edit it using a spreadsheet editor (I'm using the one from OpenOffice, can't remember its name) and then import it back? But when I try to do that last part, it always crashes the DB Editor. Please advise.

If you add a record or row you must delete the number in the last column at the top (right hand corner) and then save and exit

Ive never exported and imported with DB editor, I always use it straight up. When changing the stadium ratings the drop down menu will not go that far so .... this is what I do, I change my desktop orientation to portrait instead of landscape and you can get to the bottom stuff on the menu. Its tricky, but fun to run the mouse like this.

You know you can scroll in the drop down menu using the mouse wheel.

Also, using the DB Editor is MUCH easier when exporting and importing. All you need to do is delete the number at the top right like Rixster said.

Do I also do this if I'm just changing a value that already exists?

EDIT: I say this because every time I change my Superstar's PSKI value in the PLAY chart by exporting to a CSV and importing, I keep getting an error even after I delete that number that you mentioned.

That's odd. Post a copy of your PLAY table for us to look at. Also, do you have all the required .NET Framework packages?
