Weights Pentathlon Scoring

Below are Excel spreadsheets for the calculation of Weights Pentathlon scores (amended for the 2010 age-grading tables), and a points table generator.

In Windows, templates are usually stored in the Templates folder, e.g. C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates for XP, or C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\XLStart for Vista, but the location may vary for different versions of Excel.  Once the files are copied to the templates folder, start Excel, select ‘file’,’new’, and select the required spreadsheet from the list offered.

wpfullresults.xlt– Calculates full competition results, including sorting into age groups.

wptablegenerator.xls – Points Table Generator. Specify an age group and a range of distances for each event, and it generates a table which can be printed off.
