Dennis,

This year for the Virginia QSO Party I found there was an issue with the VA qso party (in & out of state).logform.

I had a DXCC contact and found that it was not showing up as a multiplier. So I added a DXCC field to the Log Form Setup, Multipliers tab.
That resolved that issue and DXCC countries were included in the Contest score window. See the attached file logform file.

When I printed out the Contest Log I found that while the DXCC multiplier count was listed correctly on the last page there
was not a label preceeding it like the others. See 2021 VQP Contest Log last page.png file.

I checked two other reports, Contest Report summary report, see 2021 VQP Contest Log Summary.png and Contest summary with multipliers list,
see 2021 VQP CONTEST SUMMARY WITH MULTIPLIERS LIST.png. They both exhibit the same behavior.

Is there an easy way to get the DXCC label to show up on those reports although it might need to be optional.

Thanks,

Fred

Hi--

Sorry for the problem.

It looks like the .logform you sent is the original, not the one you modified. I see no reference to DXCC.

Could you please send me that?

Tnx & 73,

Dennis,

I downloaded the logform file I sent and I see the DXCC update:

MultPts4=1
MultExpr4=IIF(DXCC="K " OR DXCC="VE ","",DXCC)
MultDescr4=
MultBand4=No
MultMode4=No
MultMaxPts4=999
MultTag4=DXCC


Those are lines 89-95.

I'm going to attach it again with one minor modification, I add DXCC for the description:

MultPts4=1
MultExpr4=IIF(DXCC="K " OR DXCC="VE ","",DXCC)
MultDescr4=DXCC
MultBand4=No
MultMode4=No
MultMaxPts4=999
MultTag4=DXCC


Let me know if you still don't see it and I'll have to figure out another way to send it.

Thanks,

Fred

You're right -- my mistake. I attempted to download it directly into my logdata\logforms folder, and got a little error in the download bar of Edge about permissions that I didn't see. Saved to Downloads, then copied and all is well.

I could not reproduce the problem. "DXCC" shows for me. The only thing I can think of is that your copy of the contest report has a problem. I attached mine. Unzip into the LOGic\Logdata\Logforms folder, overwriting what is there.

An unrelated tip on contest log forms. Set the contest end date to some future date (or leave it blank and LOGic will do it for you). That way you don't need to worry about it for future contests. The only time you need it is if you want to rescore two or more contests back.

Let me know.

Tnx & 73,

Dennis,

That fixed the problem. Don't know what happened to it but it works now.

I found that when I submitted the Cabrillo file there was another change I needed to make. In the last column that displays the Virginia county, state, and DX it turns out they don't want the DX prefix but just "DX" instead. So I updated the logform to account for this change.

RxExpr1=IIF(STATE="VA", TAG_VAL("VAQSO:",USERFIELDS), TRIM(STATE)) + IIF(EMPTY(STATE),ALLTRIM(TAG_VAL("VE PROV:", USERFIELDS)),"") + IIF(EMPTY(STATE) AND DXCC<>"VE", "DX","")

I have attached the logform as well.

Thanks again,

Fred
