    I make a “dummy” lineup each day at work and enter in the contests I wish to play to “reserve” my spots before the contests fill. Perhaps 40 or 60 entries all the same. I then complete my research and decide who I want to play before lineup lock and create those lineup using Lineup HQ. I upload them to the CSV file as instructed. Then I download the file onto Draftkings. No problem. My question is this. How can I replace my “dummy” lineups with my lineups I actually want to play, without exporting them one at a time into each individual entry. This is quite time consuming. There has to be a way to do all 40 at one time but I can’t figure it out. Please help if you can and be as specific as possible.

    After you enter your dummy lineup into all the contests you want to play…

    1. Download your entries CSV from DK.
    2. Export the lineups CSV from LineupHQ.
    3. Open both CSVs in Excel and cut & paste the cells from the LineupHQ file into the DK file.
    4. Upload the entries CSV to DK.

    This page also has some videos that should help.

    Blender, love your stuff and congrats on your recent big win. But I’m confused. Where exactly do I take care of step 1 that you mention? The entries CSV is what is hanging me up.

    export to CSV is saving as a .txt file and gives no option to save as anything else. If it saved in Excel I would be fine. Why is it doing this?
