I am customizing a couple contest logforms and I found the expression LEFT(LOCATION,AT("|",LOCATION)) under the "Copy from Prefix table" tab. Seeing as I had a mess of entries only generated from contest logform(s) that resulted in multiple "|" being added in USERFIELDS, I was wondering if this expression could be contributing to that anomaly.


What does this expression do exactly ?? SORRY, answered this myself.....I just looked in help (duh) and see its returning everything to the left (including the pipe) of the pipe in the location. I was curious as I had one anomaly relating to VE PROV and the many pipes after that entry, i.e, VE PROV: AB |||||||||, and another with multiple VE PROV entries in secession, i.e., VE PROV: AB | VE PROV: AB |, VE PROV AB: |. Thought maybe this may have had something to do with one of them but it appears not the case.


Thanks de Brad

Glad you figured it out. But thanks for posting -- who knows who else will have the same question.

Still not sure how the multiple values or the repeated ||||| got there. Just run the FIX STUFF misc util.

Tnx/73,

Thanks Dennis,

Well, I kept it on here for others to benefit from my DUH moments.....seem to be having more of those lately.....only my car is "Smart"...hihi.

As for the multi-pipes....a couple contests are coming up and so I'll be watching to see if its happening while running in a contest logform. I cant remember if I ever really looked in USERFIELDS and I never had it displayed in any logform until recently, so it was out-of-sight, out-of-mind. I doubt its got anything to do with the contest logforms but one never knows.

Thanks again,


Best 73's, de Brad
