I'm positive now that I can NOT manage my sidegames on my own anymore
(unless I individually check and import each team scores
the problem lies in the .iqy queries and in the browser version on the PC I'm using
as far as I can tell, you can't pick the browser used by the .iqy, excel it's an MS Office program, and it uses MS IExplorer,
couldn't find any way to customise it to Chrome, regardless I made Chrome the predefined browser on my PC
Bigger problem, I only have the work PC, don't have one at home.
And on the work PC I have to do with the company certified SW
And we're stuck to IE 8, can't upgrade it (it's indeed to circumvent that that I installed Chrome on my own)
Don't know wheter updating to the latest IE version would solve it,
but IE8 it's not able to correctly display the green banner and its buttons, so I can't navigate to the team page and the GW history page
it lets me login, but then even pasting the /a/team/my or the /a/event/xxx/history link into the url line, it always redirects me to the /a/#home page
(after an avalanche of pulselive and ims script errors)
That's in IE alone, leaving alone setting up a web query in excel, where the available MS browser version problems of course propagate
Mind, I have no problem with explorer from the Android, but there in the android excel I don't have iqy to manage data imports...
As I said, I only need a very limited data set from each player to run the FISO Divisionals (GP, TC, and TM)
Tacalabala's sheet would be overkill ....if his IE version allows him to keep it updated I could piggyback it
of course it would be ..."humiliating"
to depend on someone else's work to run and manage a sidegame
an auto-updating website as Mav3rick proposed would be optimal as it would only require the initial setup, and no maintenance,
but it would of course be useful only if it can present data from ALL the teams in a sidegame (on in FISO) in one view,
otherwise it would be the same as checking them manually and individually on the FPL site
, if Mav3 can't present a data table for a given League
, or List
it could also work as he suggested as a data-fetch page for a single team, as long as the "Input: FPL Team ID, Gameweek Number" can be embedded in the URL
, and not having to insert it manually in a field in the page
that way I'd set up and customise the individual web queries to query Mav's site for each single player, as I did so far with FPL
it's either that, or forsaking running the sidegame (hoping someone else takes on), or checking data manually every GW for each team (also error-prone)...
...or buying a PC with Win10 & IE11 (provided someon confirms FPL correctyl runs there) for the sole purpose of runinng an FPL sidegame
