First to answer Jesse's question, "resultTable" is now part of the tool "resultList" in the current version of "40H-PGN-utilities". The output you want is "outRes3".

A while back, I consolidated 3 separate, but similar, tools into "resultList". That is why it has 3 output files.

Using "resultList"/"outRes3" with "pairList" will give you the information you are looking for, but not in the format you requested.

The format requested can get of hand when you have many players, with multiple rounds. For example, 40 players with an 8 game round-robin. Something like that is certainly possible with chess engines, but unlikely with humans. In this case, the cross-table in the format you requested would be very difficult to read.
