When exporting staff or clubs, the exported csv/txt/html returns the right amount of rows, but only one column, and that column is empty.


I've seen others with this problem here on the forum - but no answer.

Can anyone shed some light on this issue?

Also, is it released any information on how to read the savegame database? Or is this the well kept secret of FM Scout? :)

Kind Regards, Kristian
Seriously? Noone has even a comment on this bug?

Any plans on fixing it?

sorry mate i dont know much about that stuff so cant help. doesnt look like many do.
I don't know either... I do know that Genie Scout (I assume you are talking about genie scout?)
doesn't allow exporting certain columns due to problems with SI who forbid you to export 'their' data (e.g. attributes).

I don't know the slightest thing about programming or databases either, but I do know that you might be able to do something with these folders:

Click for download.

I don't really know what they are but apparently with these you have enough information to be able to extract data from FM if you know how to do such things... I heard that the structure changed a bit since fm2005 / CMscout though..

The maker of FM11SX can tell you more about this but she hasn't been around much lately. Maybe we will see her posting more after the release of fm2012. Also Eugene (responsible for Genie Scout), knows a lot about this subject. But same story goes for him that he hasn't posted a lot lately, though he might start posting more after the release of fm2012..
