- Updated the Volunteer Application forms on the Reports window for 2014.
- Added a new "Returning Volunteer Application" to the Volunteer Reports for 2014. This new Returning Volunteer Application is intended for use with Volunteers that have already filled out a complete volunteer application and have already had a background check performed.
Build 833 - 9/19/2013
Changes in Build 833
- Added the ability to select a Tournament Team for the Parent Email File export under the File Export utility on the Reports window.
Build 832 - 8/31/2013

- Fixed an error where when a player is removed from a tournament team, using the Player/Team Assignment tab of the Divisions, Teams, and Fields window, the program was losing the player team assignment from the League Team. This has how been fixed and players can be removed from tournament teams without losing the League team assignment.
Build 830 - 6/3/2013
Changes in Build 830
- Fixed a typographical error on the Tournament Player Verification form. The area designated for the District Administrator was inadvertently labeled for the League President. This has now been fixed.
Build 829 - 6/1/2013
Changes in Build 829
- Fixed an omission and a typographical error on the Tournament Team Eligibility Affidavit. Added the Intermediate (50/70) division to the Level of Play box. Fixed a column header where the header was Games Played but should have been Date App.
Build 828 - 5/31/2013
Changes in Build 828

Build 824 - 5/2/2013
Changes in Build 824
- Made one more change to the Little League Submission formats. A problem was found where the Final submissions to the Little League Data Center created CSV files. When the CSV files are opened with Excel, Excel imports the data and drops leading zeroes on fields that it believes to be numbers. This was creating an issue wth the date formats with the Little League Data Center. If a CSV file was saved, after opening with Excel, Excel saved the date formats by dropping the leading zero on date fields where the month was supposed to be 01 through 09. This was creating error messages on import to the Little League Data Center. The output format from LeagueWorks now outputs the final submission files to a text file. The default for opening text files is by using notepad within wndows, and notepad does not drop the leading zeroes from the date fields.
Build 823 - 5/1/2013
Changes in Build 823
- Updated the formats for the Little League Data Center. The Little League Data Center modified the values for the "Role" and "Roster Type" categories to include players (B or G for Male or Female), M for Managers, C for Coaches, and V for all other Volunteers. The output formats now conform to these new Role and Roster Types.
Build 822 - 4/29/2013

Build 801 - 12/10/2012
Changes in Build 801
- Added "Intermediate League BB" to the "Little League Official Division Name" on the Divisions, Teams, and Fields window.

This export option was added based on a request from Little League Baseball, Incorporated, and allows the organization to submit Manager/Coach assignments as volunteers are assigned as Managers and Coaches for the new season. Please note, volunteers must be assigned to teams as Managers/Coaches for the export option to work. This option is not for volunteers that have requested a Manager or Coach position, this is only for Managers and Coaches that have been assigned to manage or coach teams.
- Renamed the export options for exporting data to the Little League Data Center to "Export - LLDC Final Roster Submission...". These options are for submitting the final rosters to the Little League Data Center when players, managers, coaches, and team parents have been assigned to teams.

- Added an option to "Remove Volunteer Date of Birth Verified" to the New Season window. This allows organizations that require confirmation of a volunteers Data of Birth every year to note whether the ID has been verified for the New Season.

The report displays a summary of all of the players on each team.
Build 788 - 3/5/2012
Changes in Build 788
- Made a modification to the automated assignment of players to divisions based on age or grade. The program now does multiple passes through the divisions for which the player is age eligible. If the player is age eligible for more than one division, the program first tries to find a match to a division where the player is age eligible and the player's gender matches the division gender that is defined on the division record. If a match is found, the player is automatically assigned to that division. If a match is not found, the program searches the eligible division list to determine if the player is already assigned to a division for which they are age eligible. If a match is found, the player is left in the division and the team assignment (if the player is assigned to a team within the division) is left intact. Finally, if a match is not found on the second pass through the eligible divisions, the program will perform a search of the eligible divisions where the division gender is set to "Male & Female". If a match is found, the program will assign the player to the matching division.
Build 787 - 3/4/2012
Changes in Build 787
- Added new Team Grade Level Balance Sheet report on the Reports window under the Division Reports option. The Team Grade Level Balance Sheet shows the school grade for each player on all teams and also displays the average grade for each of the teams within a division. This will help in balancing the teams by grade level.
- Added a new Team Age Balance Sheet to the Division Reports option of the reports window. The Team Age Balance Sheet shows the age of each of the players on all teams and also displays the average age for each of the teams within a division. This will help to balance the teams by age.

In the output file from LeagueWorks, if the player phone number had not been entered in the database but the area code was entered in the database, the output for the Little League Data Center was including only the area code. This was causing a problem with the import to the Little League Data Center where it could not interpret the phone number data. A check has been added so that if the player's area code exists, but the player's phone number does not exist, the program now places "000-0000" as the phone number in the export file. All other phone numbers were also checked to make sure this error could not occur in any other phone number.

Changes in Build 536

The program has now been changed so that if the Role column is in the downloaded CSV file and there is not data in the Role column, the program will assume that the imported data is a Player record. Also, if the downloaded CSV file does NOT contain the Role column, the program assumes that the incoming record is a player record.
- Added an option to several of the Player reports so that the user can now request information on All, Active, or Inactive players.

Changes in Build 507

Build 467 - 3/8/2006
Changes in Build 467
Modified the Schedule reports. In making the change for the date format in build 466, the wrong date was inadvertently picked up in the schedule reports, displaying the current date. The reports have now been fixed and the reports display the proper schedule date.
Build 466 - 3/5/2006
Changes in Build 466
Modified all of the date formats in the program to use the "Short Date" format as defined within the Windows operating system.

The program will now handle any short date format.
Build 464 - 2/23/2006
Changes in Build 464
Fixed a problem that only occurred if the database was used over a local area network. If the database could not be found on the network (i.e. the mapped network drive or the Universal Naming Convention (UNC) network drive was not available), the program was reporting an error and aborting without allowing the user to select a new database. This has now been fixed. If the network path or the UNC notation path is not available and the database cannot be found, the program will prompt the user to find the database.
Build 463 - 2/17/2006
Changes in Build 463
Fixed a problem reported with the Merge process. The database version checking was not working correctly and thus reporting that the version of the database being merged in could not be merged into the local database. This has now been fixed and the merge is working properly.
Build 462 - 2/15/2006

Found a problem on the Division, Team, and Field window where the Division Minimum Age and Division Maximum Age was not being initialized properly in the database when a new Division was added. This was causing problems in some of the age related reports.
There seemed to be some confusion with the nomenclature used on Default Age Cutoff Year on the Setup and Defaults tab of the Program Preferences window. The "Current Season Year" and "Current Season Year - 1" seemed to be causing the confusion. This has now been changed so that the actual year is displayed, based on the value in the "Current Season Year" variable on the left hand side of the window. Whenever the Current Season Year is changed, the values in the Default Age Cutoff Year's will also dynamically change on the window.
One item that was added to the New Season window, but was missed in the Update summaries on this page is the addition of the ability to remove the "Custom Player Field" data on the Player and Volunteer records. On the New Season window, you can now optionally remove the data from the Custom Fields defined on the Player Registration and Volunteer Registration windows.
Build 451 - 1/1/2006

Changes in Build 450
Added a new capability to track extra shirt and hat orders. A new button has been added on the School/Uniform tab of the Player Registration window. The "Extra Uniforms" button will allow you to add up to 3 different size shirts and hats and the quantities desired.
Added the Extra Uniform information to the Uniform reports. The extra uniform orders are displayed with the player on the uniform reports and are included in the totals on the uniform summary reports.
Added the Player Email Address to the Active Player List report.
Modified the Single Player Report to properly display the Volunteer status. The report now checks to make sure that valid parent names and phone numbers have been specified. Then the report checks the volunteer table to see if the parent resides in the volunteer table. If a volunteer record is found and the "Active" status is true, then the report displays "Yes" for the volunteer status, otherwise the report displays "No".
Modified the Import process to add a few new fields and fixes to better accommodate player imports.
Fixed a problem found on the Ability Ratings reports where the Player Age was not being displayed properly.
Several other minor enhancements to the reports section.
Build 446 - 12/05/2005
Changes in Build 446
Fixed a problem reported with the automatic generation of Tryout numbers. The first two characters are supposed to be the Age of the player. The Age portion of the Tryout number assignment was not always calculating properly and the wrong age was displayed on the reports for the Tryout Number. This has been fixed, now the age within the tryout numbers displays properly within the Evaluation Reports.
Added the ability on the Category Setup window to add, delete, and edit any typographical errors in the City Names within the database.
Added new functionality to the Category Setup window. To aid cleanup of any errant data, the Doctors, Dentists, Hospitals, Occupations, and City Names tabs on the Category Setup window now displays a count of the applicable records that reference this information. This will help to clean up bad or unused data in the database.
Modified the Volunteer Application for 2006.
Build 444 - 11/17/2005
Changes in Build 444
Fixed a problem found in the Merge module where the merge was not handling the Little League Division identifier properly.
Fixed a tabbing issue on the Program Preferences window.
Modified the Alternative Evaluation Report with generic labels and a few new fields.
Build 442 - 11/6/2005
Changes in Build 442
Added a new Player Registration Form that supports the use of standard #10 window envelopes. The registration form can be printed and stuffed into the standard window envelope for mailing.
Added a new Volunteer Fee field on the Volunteer Registration window. This will assist in tracking fees for those organizations that charge a volunteer fee or collect money from volunteers.
Added three new Fee Reports. New reports were added on the Fee Reports selection of the Reports window to display a Volunteer Fee Summary report, Volunteer Balance Due Report, and Volunteer Refund Due Report.
Added the Volunteer Fee to the Merge utility.
Added the Player Years of Experience to the AFTF Import functionality. The Player Years of Experience was not being imported prior to this addition. Now the Years of Experience can be imported into the Player Record. If the Years of Experience column is not found on the import record, then the Years of Experience for the player is initialized to 0.
Added a new Years of Experience column to the AFTF Data Worksheet. The new Excel Worksheet can be downloaded here in zip format or here in Excel format.
Build 438 - 10/25/2005
Changes in Build 438
Added the ability to enter negative dollar values in the Player Fee fields. Now it is possible to track player or family discounts by entering a negative value on the Other Fees window of the Player Registration window. Negative dollar values can be entered in the following formats ($5.00 is used just as an example, any value may be entered): -$5.00 or ($5.00).
Build 437 - 10/22/2005
Changes in Build 437
Based on the new Baseball and Softball selections on the Player Registration window, many of the reports have been modified to allow the user to select whether the report should be for Baseball Only, Softball Only, or both.
Build 435 - 10/13/2005
Changes in Build 435
Added new options to the Refund Due Summary report and Balance Due Summary report. These reports can be found on the Fee Reports selection of the Reports window. The new options added allow the selection of Active Players Only, Inactive Players Only, and All Players (Active and Inactive).
Fixed a problem found in the Player Receipt report. Under certain conditions an error could be displayed that would not let the report run. This has been fixed and a new option has been added to print receipts for "All Players". You can still select a single player for whom you want to print a receipt, but now the option is available to print a receipt for All Players.
Added new functionality to the Import process to set the Player Baseball or Softball status based on the Gender. The Baseball or Softball status flag is used by the program to determine whether the program should use the "Default Baseball Age Cutoff" or "Default Softball Age Cutoff" to calculate the players age. Don't forget, the Default age cutoff dates are only used if the Player is NOT assigned to a Division. If a player is assigned to a Division, the player's age is calculated based on the Age Cutoff Date assigned at the Division level.
Build 431 - 9/21/2005
Changes in Build 431
Fixed a bug reported in the Backup utility. This only affected users where the database is NOT located in the default installation directory. The backup utility was looking for the Player Pictures, Birth Certificate Images, and Volunteer Pictures folders in the same location as the database. This has now been fixed and the backup utility looks for the Player Pictures, Birth Certificate Images, and Volunteer Pictures folders in the same folder where LeagueWorks is installed.
Build 430 - 9/18/2005
Changes in Build 430
Added the ability on the New Season window to remove the Player Division and Team assignments from one division at a time or all divisions at once. This will facilitate the organizations that keep players on the same team from year to year -- these organizations can now remove the Division and Team assignments from the desired Divisions only rather than all divisions and then reassigning players to the same teams.
Build 429 - 9/1/2005
Changes in Build 429
Renamed the "Database Path" tab of the Program Preferences window to "DB & Logo File Path". A new field has been added to this tab to designate a Logo. If a path to a logo image file is added, the logo will be displayed on all of the output reports, except the Player Registration form.
Modified the Other Fees field on the Player Registration form. The "Other Fees" field has been replaced by a button that will open up a new window for the other fees. You can now enter up to 5 Other Fees on this new window.
The new Other Fees window will allow the modification of the Other Fee labels to any desired name up to 15 characters.
Modified the Fee reports, Player Invoice, and Player Receipt reports to add the new Other Fees fields. The labels specified on the Other Fees window will be displayed as entered on the reports.
Build 427 - 8/6/2005
Changes in Build 427
A bug was reported where the error message "Object does not support this property or method" appeared when entering the Player Registration window from the Startup window. This error could also have occurred when a player was marked Active or when a Player Division assignment was removed. These problems have now been fixed.
Build 426 - 8/1/2005
Changes in Build 426
The changes for the age changes for the 2006 Little League Baseball season have been completed. Below is a summary of the changes and how they will affect the software.
An information window has been added to the program to explain the changes to the software and what will need to be completed within the data to correspond with the new Age Cutoff dates.
A new Default Age Cutoff Month and Day has been added to the Setup and Defaults tab of the Program Preferences window for Softball. The previous Default Age Cutoff Month and Day has been renamed to the "Baseball Player Age Cutoff".
Within both the Baseball Player Default Age Cutoff Month and Day and the Softball Player Default Age Cutoff Month and Day on the Setup and Defaults tab of the Program Preferences window, a new Default Age Cutoff Year has been added. This year is based on the year that is specified in the "Current Season Year" entry on that same tab. "Current Season Year" should be selected for the "Baseball Player Age Cutoff" and "Current Season Year - 1" should be selected for the "Softball Player Age Cutoff".
New fields have been added to the Player Registration window to denote whether the players age should be calculated based on the Baseball Player Default Age Cutoff dates or the Softball Player Default Age Cutoff dates from the Setup and Defaults tab of the Program Preferences window. The information window provides a tool that will help in selecting the "Baseball Player" or "Softball Player" status for the Player Registration window. Please Note: The Default Age Cutoff Dates are only used if a player is NOT assigned to a Division. If a player is assigned to a Division, the Age Cutoff Month and Day defined for the Division is used to calculate the Player's age.
A new "Age Cutoff Year" has been added to the Division level age cutoff dates. Please note, this field is a calculated field and corresponds to the "Current Season Year" that is set on the Setup and Defaults tab of the Program Preferences window. Therefore, if 2006 is set for the Current Season Year, the only years that will be available in the Age Cutoff Year on the Division record will be 2006 and 2005.
All reports that involve the age have been modified to use the new age cutoff month, day, and year from the Setup and Defaults tab of the Program Preferences window or the age cutoff month, day, and year from the Division window.
Don't forget to change the Age Cutoff Month, Day, and Year on each of the Division Records.
Two reports that may be helpful in determining how the new age cutoff dates will affect your enrollment are:
A. Player Age Exception Report found in the Player Reports selection of the Reports window. This report will display any players that may now be age ineligible for the Division to which they are assigned.
B. Player Count by Age and Gender found in the League Reports and Forms selection of the Reports window. This report will provide a breakdown of the number of players based on Age and Gender.
Build 423 - 7/3/2005
Changes in Build 423
Based on user requests, the Active Player List and Inactive Player List reports (under the League Reports and Forms selection on the Reports window) have been modified with new selections. The reports can now be selected to list the players by Name or Age, and optionally separate the reports by Gender. If the Player Age is selected, the reports will break down the Players by Age on separate pages for each age. A header will be displayed for each age group. Optionally, if the gender is selected, a header row will be displayed showing the player's gender.
Please Note: The reports will display all ages. To print only selected ages, look for the page numbers that are needed at the top of the report. Then in the Print Option dialog, select the Page Range that is to be printed. This will allow the user to print a single age or a range of ages.
Build 422 - 6/27/2005
Changes in Build 422
Added the ability on the Divisions/Teams/Fields window to add players to Tournament Teams. Now, you can select the Division and Team that you would like to work with on the Divisions/Teams/Fields window, go to the Player/Team Assignment tab, select whether the team you are working with is a "League Team" or "Tournament Team" and place players on the team. The players will then be added to the team as selected.
Build 421 - 6/15/2005
Changes in Build 421
Added two new reports for reporting game results. The first report displays the games that have been played within each Division and can be accessed on the "Division Reports" -- the "Games Played (by Division)" report. The second report, the "Games Played (by Team)" report displays the game results that have been played by each team. This report can be accessed in two places, on the "Division Reports" selection and on the "Team Reports" selection of the Reports window.
Modified the reports to use the nomenclature for "Manager" and "Coach" as prescribed by Little League Baseball, Incorporated. All reports now refer to the Head Coach or Team Manager as "Manager". The Assistant Coaches for the team are referred to as "Coach" on all reports.
Added functionality so that the automated Division Assignment (for new players or newly "Active" players) now uses the "Gender" of the player and the Gender assigned to the Division to best match the player to the proper Division based on Age.
Fixed a problem on the Volunteer Identification Cards. The card was displaying "Division" and "Team Name" where it should have displayed "Volunteer". This has now been fixed and "Volunteer" is not properly being displayed on the card.
Cleaned up various report formats to fix errant fonts and misalignments of data.
Build 420 - 6/12/2005
Changes in Build 420
Added extra checks in the program to make sure that if a player is assigned to a tournament team, LeagueWorks automatically removes the player from the team if the Tournament Division and/or Team is deleted.
Fixed a problem in the Team Roster reports where the Manager and Coach information was not always displayed properly.
Many other behind the scenes update to improve processing and make data input easier.
Build 417 - 5/22/2005
Changes in Build 417
Modified the Uniform reports to include information for the Tournament teams. All Team uniform reports now include the tournament team uniform information. The Division level summary reports have not been modified as this could cause the wrong numbers to be generated for the Division level reports.
Build 416 - 4/26/2005
Changes in Build 416
Fixed a problem found in the uniform reports. The program was not checking the Active and Deleted flags properly in the database. This could result in improper numbers for uniforms being calculated. The problem has now been fixed.
Added a drop down list box to the Player, Volunteer, and Sponsor registrations so that the City can now be selected from a list of cities rather than requiring the user to enter the city every time.
Build 414 - 3/30/2005
Changes in Build 414
Fixed a problem found in the "LeagueWorks Formatted CSV File..." import. An error code 91 was being generated on the import of player records.
Build 413 - 3/22/2005
Changes in Build 413
Fixed a problem found in the merge process that was causing the Player date and time stamp to be updated incorrectly.
Build 412 - 3/21/2005
Changes in Build 412
Fixed a problem found in merging Doctors and Dentists.
Fixed a problem where a player with multiple hyphens in their name was not handled properly on the Player Registration window and also on some reports.
Fixed a problem in the Uniform reports where an error message was being displayed. This only occurred if all of the Player Pant Size records had been deleted from the database.
Build 409 - 3/13/2005
Changes in Build 409
Added the "Input File Name", "Merge Date", and "Merge Time" to the Player Merge Reconciliation report.
Build 408 - 3/10/2005
Changes in Build 408
New update for those organizations with multiple people entering data on multiple computers. The Merge process now will optionally create a "Player Merge Reconciliation Report". The report will display a summary of the records processed, including the number of records processed, number of records added, number of records updated, and number or records skipped and the reason why. The report also generates a detail listing of each player record processed. This will allow a reconciliation of every transaction that occurred (or did not occur) during the player merge.
Build 407 - 3/3/2005
Changes in Build 407
Added the Division/Team information to the Single Volunteer, Volunteer by Division, Volunteer by Division/Team, and Volunteer by Category reports in the "Players Associated with Volunteer" section. If the Player is assigned to a Division and Team, the Division/Team will be displayed below the players name. If the player has not been assigned to a Division or Team, "(None)" is displayed for the Division and/or Team.
Fixed a problem in the Team Roster report in Portrait mode. When a Division and Team were specified, an error occurred and the report did not print.
Added text on the guardian lines of all Team Roster reports to denote if a guardian has been specified as a volunteer or not.
Build 406 - 2/28/2005
Changes in Build 406
A problem was reported where the Volunteer Custom Fields were not always being cleared properly when a Parent/Guardian was added as a Volunteer by marking "Yes" to the Volunteer box on the Parent Info. tab of the Player Registration window. This has now been fixed.
A problem was also reported where volunteer positions were being associated with the wrong players on the Volunteer Registration tab of the Player/Volunteer/Sponsor registration window. This has now been fixed.
Build 405 - 2/27/2005
Changes in Build 405
Added the ability to place a player on a "Tournament Team" or second team. This will come in handy for tournament or travel teams. Please note, the majority of the reports use the "League Team" as the primary team. The League Team is considered to be the primary team and the Tournament Team is the secondary team. Players can only be placed on tournament teams on the Player Registration window -- the Divisions/Teams window will only allow the placement of players on the primary League Team. The reports also consider the League Team to be the primary team, although, all Team reports where a roster is involved will display the rosters with both the League Team and the Tournament team. Divisions and Teams are still formed the same way, for example, a "Tournament Team" division can be created and Teams defined within the division. The Player can then be placed on one of the Tournament teams on the Player Registration window.
Enhanced Backup and Restore Utility has been added. The Player Pictures, Birth Certificates, and Volunteer Pictures are now options on the Backup and Restore. When a backup is being performed, please make sure to Backup the Database, Player Pictures, Birth Certificate Images, and Volunteer Pictures in separate files. The Backup utility will prompt the user with suggested names.
Modified the Phone Number fields so that if a Players Phone number changes, the change will also be made to Parents phone numbers that match, and the program will also check volunteers to see if their phone number matches and will change it as needed.
The Sponsor tab on the Player/Volunteer/Sponsor registration window has been completely reworked. The previous pledges have been removed and new Email Address and Active flag fields have been added. You can now mark the sponsors active or inactive for the current year. Only Active sponsors will be displayed in the drop down list boxes on the Team Sponsor selection of the Divisions/Teams window. The New Season window has also been updated with an option to Mark All Sponsors Inactive.
The Automated Player draft has been modified so that you can perform an automated player draft with players already assigned to teams. The automated draft will still attempt to balance the teams as much as possible (as was done before) based on Player Ratings and Player Age. This will come in handy for organizations that allow the coach to hand pick a few players before the draft. This can also be used after the draft is complete to add new players to teams.
The reports have been modified to include the new Tournament Teams option from the player registration window. If a division is created specifically for Tournament or Travel teams, team rosters can be generated for these teams.
A new option has been added to the Player Evaluation Reports so that optionally, Player Evaluation reports can be generated only for players that are not already assigned to a team.
A new option has been added for the Volunteer ID cards. When the "Volunteer ID Cards" report is selected from the Volunteer reports, the user will be able to select "All Volunteers" or a single volunteer. If "All Volunteers" is selected, the user will be prompted for "Active", "Inactive", or "All Volunteers (Active and Inactive)".
Many other behind the scenes enhancements have been added to make data input easier.
Build 402 - 1/30/2005
Changes in Build 402
Added a change so that if the "Assign Divisions by Grade" option is selected on the Setup and Defaults tab of the Program Preference window, the Division assignment will only be made if the "Play Up" or "Strict" option is selected. If the "Unlimited" option is selected, the Division will not automatically be assigned when the grade changes.
Build 402 - 1/30/2005
Changes in Build 402
Added a new ability on the Player Evaluation reports to enable the ability to print reports only for players that are not assigned to a team.
Fixed a bug in, and added new fields to the Player Import. New fields were added for the Player Active column, How Fee Paid, and Player Custom Fields.
A New AFTF Data Worksheet has been uploaded to the LeagueWorks website with the new data columns added.
Added a new prompt on the Player Balance Due invoice to add an "Invoice Due Date" prompt.
Fixed a bug on the Division/Team/Field window where the LL Official Division Name and LL Official Division Code were disappearing.
Many other "behind the scenes" enhancements and reports.
Watch for further updates. A new ability to add a Player to a Travel or Tournament team is being added now. Also, the ability to use the Auto Draft when players are already assigned to teams is in the works. Thanks for all of the suggestions.
Build 399 - 12/23/2004
Changes in Build 399
Found and fixed a problem when entering a Birth Date for a player. Under certain conditions, a window was displayed requesting a database connection. This has now been fixed and the birth date for players can now be entered properly.
Build 395 - 12/06/2004
Changes in Build 395
Added functionality to the Category Setup window so that now any time an Insurance Agency, School name, Dentist Name or Phone Number, Doctor Name or Phone Number, Hospital Name, or Occupation Name is changed on this window, LeagueWorks automatically checks the Player records and Volunteer records to determine if any records are affected by the change. If there are records that are affected by the change, the user is given the option to update the Player and/or Volunteer records.
Build 393 - 11/18/2004
Changes in Build 393
Removed the questions when a player registration is saved concerning adding the Doctor, Dentist, Hospital, Insurance, and Guardian Occupations to the database. The data is now automatically saved in the database if it does not exist.
Added a choice on the Registration Count and Player Count by Age and Gender reports so that the user can now select whether the counts are for Active, Inactive, or All Players.
Build 392 - 11/14/2004
Changes in Build 392
Fixed a problem where the Player was not remaining on the same team when they were marked active. Now, if the player is not removed from the Division and Team on the New Season window, and the player is eligible for the Division they were previously assigned to, the player will stay in the same division and on the same team.
Added the Guardian phone information to the Active Player List and Inactive Player List reports.
Modified the Insurance field on the Player Registration so that it acts the same as the Doctor, Dentist, and Hospital entries -- if the Insurance Company is not found in the database, it is automatically added to the Insurance table.
Fixed a memory leak in the program that could cause system resources to slowly be drained.
Build 388 - 10/17/2004
Changes in Build 388
Please Note: It is highly recommended that the Full installation of LeagueWorks for Little League be downloaded and installed. The full installation takes advantage of new security patches and updates that have been distributed by Microsoft. The full installation will not overwrite your data (although backing up your data by using the Backup utility on the Data Utilities window, before installing a full installation or update installation, is always recommended). You can download and install this update version, although the update version does not include the patches and updates provided by Microsoft. The updates provided from Microsoft include new Data Access modules (MS Jet 4.0 Service Pack 8) and new Visual Basic runtime Service Pack 6.
Fixed a bug in the Player's Print Birth Certificates report. A birth certificate did not print properly if a player image was not available.
Added Parent Occupation tracking and Occupation Reports. You can now track Parent Occupations and print Parent and Volunteer Occupation reports based on the Occupations entered.
Added an Occupation table to the database. You can now specify a list of Occupations on the Category Setup window.
Modified the Volunteer Application form to match the new form provided by Little League Baseball, Incorporated.
Added Website address fields to the Player Registration forms. You can now specify your League's website address on the Player Registration form. Also, if your league provides Online registration, you can specify the website name of the Online Registration site on your Player Registration form. To add these fields to your Player Registration form, select "Registration Form Field Selection" from the Edit menu of the Reports window. Here, you can specify which "League Use Only" fields will automatically be filled in by the software, and you can specify website addresses for your league's website and online registration website.
Added a new ability to specify the Player Fee by Age. On the Setup and Defaults tab of the Program Preferences window, you can now specify how the Player Fee is associated with the Player -- either by the fee designated on the Division record, or by Player Age. If the Player Age is selected, a button is available to specify the Age and Player Fee.
Build 384 - 09/23/2004
Changes in Build 384
Fixed a bug found on the Category Setup window where some of the records were not displaying all of the proper data.

Build 380 - 07/27/2004
Changes in Build 380
LeagueWorks for Little League's database file (LeagueWorksLL.mdb or myteam.mtd) is now compatible with all versions of Microsoft Access. You can now use any version of Microsoft Access to open the LeagueWorks for Soccer database file to create your own custom reports! When using a version of MS Access other than Access97 to open the database, you can now say "Yes" to converting the database to the latest format. LeagueWorks will still be able to open and read the file.

Many other reports and behind the scenes updates to make input easier and reports more full featured!!
Build 378 - 05/11/2004
Changes in Build 378
Fixed a problem reported in the Team Schedule report. If a teams schedule expanded to more than one page, the second page was not showing the Team Name and Coach information properly.
Fixed a potential problem with the Little League Data Center upload. The Little League Data Center now includes all Active volunteers and if a volunteers address or phone number are not entered, it could cause a potential problem with the Little League Data Center upload. Now, if the address is not known for a volunteer, the program places "Unknown" in the street address. If the city, state/province, and postal code are not entered, the program will use the defaults defined on the Setup and Defaults tab of the Program Preferences window. Also, if a phone number is not entered, the program will use the default area code defined on the Setup and Defaults tab of the Program Preferences window and will place all nines in the phone number field. This will keep the Little League Data Center from rejecting an upload due to an address or other information not being entered for a volunteer.
Added a new Player Evaluation Report based on a customer request.
Build 377 - 05/02/2004
Changes in Build 377
Added the Volunteers to the Little League Data Center AFTF Export. The AFTF export now includes all Managers, Coaches, and "Active" Volunteers in the file that can be sent to the Little League Data Center.
Added a check to make sure that the Little League ID is added properly to the database. In some automated conversions from Myteam Desktop and ARM, the Little League ID was not being added to the database properly. LeagueWorks for Little League will now automatically check to make sure that the Little League ID is in the database.
Build 376 - 04/26/2004
Changes in Build 376
New Feature - LeagueWorks for Little League will now track the Player Transactions! Teams can now be "Locked" once the player drafts are complete. Once you lock the team, any changes to the player (on the player registration window) that affect their "Active/Inactive" status, Division Assignment, or Team Assignment will require a "Transaction" to be recorded. The transaction will track any Active/Inactive status change and/or the removal from or addition to a team that is "Locked".
Added a new Player Transaction Report to the League Reports and Forms selection of the Reports Window.
Changed the Dentist, Doctor, and Hospital information on the player window to be drop down lists to make selection of the Dentist, Doctor, and Hospital easier on the Player Registration window.
Added the Dentist, Doctor, and Hospital categories to the Category Setup window so the Dentists, Doctors, and Hospitals can be prepopulated.
Added the Player Transactions and Dentists, Doctors, and Hospitals to the Merge function so that all can now be merged from remote databases.
Fixed a bug in the Team merge where the second Sponsor for a team was not being merged into the local database properly.
Added several other new reports and comments and suggestions from users.
Build 373 - 03/17/2004
Changes in Build 373
A bug was reported in the Player by Division report and Player by Division (Sorted by Team) report where the reports were printing extra pages. The reports have now been fixed so that the extra pages do not print.
Build 372 - 03/15/2004
Changes in Build 372
A problem was reported on the "Family Mailing Labels", where the name was not printing properly on the label. Only "Firstname" was being displayed in the Name position. This has been fixed and the Family Mailing Labels now print properly.
Build 371 - 03/05/2004
Changes in Build 371
A problem was reported on the Volunteer Registration window. When the Add New button was pressed a "Type Mismatch" error was being generated. This has now been fixed and the Add New button works properly.
Build 370 - 02/29/2004
Changes in Build 370
Added a Volunteer Background Check box to the Volunteer window. It is now possible to track which volunteers have had a background check performed, and which ones have not. You can also enter the date on which the background check was performed.
Two new Volunteer background check reports have been added. The second report displays the Volunteers that have had a background check, along with the date that the background check was performed. And, a report to show the Volunteers that have not had a background check completed.
A new volunteer report has been added that allows you to select volunteers by Category. The report displays the volunteers by the category you select for the report. For example, you can now run a report to display all of the volunteers that have signed up to be "Managers" or "Coaches" or "Team Parents".
Changed the Doctor, Dentist, and Preferred Hospital to drop-down list boxes so it is now possible to select the Doctor, Dentist, or Hospital from a drop-down list. This new update will automatically go through the database and add each Doctor and their Phone Number, Dentist and their Phone Number, and Hospital to the new Doctor, Dentist, and Hospital tables. You can still enter a Doctor, Dentist, or Hospital to the Player Information, even if the Doctor, Dentist, or Hospital is not in the list.
Added new Doctor, Dentist, and Hospital tabs to the Category Setup window. You can now pre-populate the Doctor, Dentist, and Hospital fields for the Player Registration from the Category Setup window.
Added changes to the Player Registration window so that you can now select which "Fee" fields and "League Use Only" fields are pre-populated by the data in the database when the Player Registration form is printed.
Modified the Import/Export options on the Startup window to better denote what fields are being exported. The first option is a specific export for the Little League Data Center, the second export is for an AFTF formatted CSV file, and the third export is for a LeagueWorks formatted CSV file. The LeagueWorks formatted CSV file includes extra LeagueWorks specific fields that are not included in the AFTF format. The exports are now clearly marked if the export is for an AFTF formatted export or a LeagueWorks formatted export.
Fixed a problem with the Comma Separated Value import where not all of the fields were being imported if the export was done with the the option that included extra LeagueWorks specific fields. These extra fields are LeagueWorks specific and were not being imported by the AFTF import function. A new import option has been added on the Data Utilities window to denote the LeagueWorks formatted CSV file import.
Added three new Player reports. The first report displays the Active Players that still require a Residency check. The second report displays the Active Players that are on a "Waiting List". This is similar to the Players Not Assigned to a Team report, except the players are listed by their Registration Date instead of in alphabetical order. The third report displays the Active players that still need a Medical Release form to be completed.
Added a School Registration Summary report. This report displays the number of players registered from each school (as long as each of the Players School information has been designated on their Player Registration information).
Added new Fee reports. The first report displays the Fees broken down by Registration Date. This will assist in Deposit information for your organizations bank deposits. The second report is a "Grand Totals Report". This report displays the grand totals of all Active player registration fees, fundraiser fees, and other fees, along with the totals for fees due and refunds due.
Added new email address reports for Inactive Players and Inactive Volunteers.
Changed the Mailing Label outputs so that you can now output mailing labels to a Comma Separated Value (CSV) file. This will allow you to export the mailing label information and import the data into any label program that will accept CSV files.
Watch for new updates coming soon. A "Player Transaction" capability is in the works and almost complete. This capability will allow you to "Lock" teams when the player draft is complete. It will also allow the capability to track "Player Transactions" from locked teams.

Changes in Build 362
Several requests have been received to either fill in the "League Use Only" and Fee Amount information on the Player Registration Form, or leave the information in the "League Use Only" and Fee Amount boxes blank. Due to various organizations using the information in different ways, a means of selecting whether or not the "League Use Only" and Fee Amount boxes are populated with data or left blank has been added to the program. The first time that Player Registrations are printed, the user will be prompted with a window allowing them to select what fields in the "League Use Only" and Fee Amount boxes on the Player Registration form will be populated by LeagueWorks.
To change the fields that are populated on the Player Registration form in the "League Use Only" and Fee Amount boxes, a new menu item has been added. On the Reports window, under the "Edit" menu, a new selection for "Registration Form Field Selection" has been added. By selecting this menu item, a window is displayed that will allow the user to change the "League Use Only" and Fee Amount boxes that are populated by LeagueWorks when Player Registration Forms are printed.
