Now that I have a 'working eQSL' account, what's the best way to go back and place a check mark on all my QSO's for eQSL request (Rcvd and Sent)?

I have so many eQSL's in my account waiting for a confirmation, I don't want to go through each one individually. Some QSO's go back to my novice time (1980's).

I think there is a 'batch' command but I can't remember.

Thanks.

Vin,
Usual disclaimers about doing a backup first.

Tools > Advanced > Database commands

use log
replace EQSL_SENT with .T. for QSO_DATE<{^1970-01-01}


Modify the date as suits your needs.

73s,
Don

To put R in QSL_RCVD, just fill out the MASS CHANGE/REPLACE FIELD CONTENTS screen as per the attached screen shot.

This results in the following command:

replace qsl_rcvd with "R" for QSL_RCVD<>' ' AND QSO_DATE>={^1970-01-01}

Ok, this does only QSOs on or after Jan 1 '70. Don's example does only QSOs before Jan 1 '70. Not sure what you want, but you get the idea hihi.

Tnx & 73,

Dennis WN4AZY

Hi Dennis,

I'm assuming if there is already an "R", "F", "I" or "X" in the field, it will not change it to "R", right?

Or do I enter "R" in the second box where it says "Replace only if: (blank to replace all)"

Thanks,
Vin

Right. If there is anything in there other than a blank, ( <> " ") it will not change it.

If you want to do it the hard way, you could do this:
replace qsl_rcvd with "R" for QSL_RCVD<>"R" AND QSL_RCVD<>"F" AND QSL_RCVD<>"I" AND QSL_RCVD<>"X" AND QSO_DATE>={^1970-01-01}

You could do this if you want to make it even harder.

replace qsl_rcvd with "R" for QSL_RCVD<>"R" AND QSL_RCVD<>"F" AND QSL_RCVD<>"I" AND QSL_RCVD<>"X" AND QSL_RCVD<>"R" AND QSO_DATE>={^1970-01-01}

But it would just save a little disk activity because it won't rewrite an R where there is already one as the preceding example does.

73,

Worked great...thank you !!!!!

UPDATE: I spoke too soon. The mass change entered "R" for all QSO's, even if there was an "R", "F", "I" or "X" in the field prior to the mass change. Sad
