WTF – Reporting on data

The standings for the current Arizona State Championships are available online, but for some reason my poor machine seems to take forever to display them, and switching back and forth between apps is a bad idea.

If any of you know this already, stop reading now.

Crystal Report Viewer. Got me some tab-u-lar data to report on…

First entry looks like this

<div style=”left:480PX;top:183PX;width:112PX;height:16PX;”><span class=”fc0″>Gr Phoenix BA</span></div>

<div style=”left:104PX;top:183PX;width:208PX;height:16PX;”><span class=”fc0″>Martin, Scott J</span></div>

<div style=”left:320PX;top:183PX;width:40PX;height:16PX;TEXT-ALIGN:RIGHT;”><span class=”fc0″>79</span></div>

<div style=”left:384PX;top:183PX;width:40PX;height:16PX;TEXT-ALIGN:RIGHT;”><span class=”fc0″>2,465</span></div>

<div style=”left:432PX;top:183PX;width:32PX;height:16PX;TEXT-ALIGN:RIGHT;”><span class=”fc0″>792</span></div>

<div style=”left:56PX;top:183PX;width:32PX;height:16PX;TEXT-ALIGN:RIGHT;”><span class=”fc0″>1</span></div>

last entry looks like this

<div style=”left:480PX;top:84176PX;width:112PX;height:16PX;”><span class=”fc83″>Mesa Metropolitan U</span></div>

<div style=”left:104PX;top:84176PX;width:208PX;height:16PX;”><span class=”fc83″>Newberry, Angela C</span></div>

<div style=”left:320PX;top:84176PX;width:40PX;height:16PX;TEXT-ALIGN:RIGHT;”><span class=”fc83″>526</span></div>

<div style=”left:384PX;top:84176PX;width:40PX;height:16PX;TEXT-ALIGN:RIGHT;”><span class=”fc83″>313</span></div>

<div style=”left:56PX;top:84176PX;width:32PX;height:16PX;TEXT-ALIGN:RIGHT;”><span class=”fc83″>487</span></div>

There’s only 49,000 lines of HTML – a grand total of 24,675 “styled” <div>
