Hi
Well I agree with those that say it keeps a log of all aircraft it picks up and I personally endorse the comment box with a "Y" if I have actually seen the plane.
My only personal regret is that I cannot see from the radar view if I have already seen the aircraft without having to keep looking at each plane in My Log
So if the programme writers are reading this is there a way of doing something so that aircraft I have seen can have some indication against them when they appear on the screen.

Nick,

There is a new field on the grid CO which can be used for this and which can be updated through d/b explorer.  Just remember to set N so that it is not synced to the server.

Alan

Sorry to keep picking your brains but ...
I have 3969 aircraft I have seen  and have marked Y in the comment box on my log
Is there a quick way of transferring this info into the database CO box
Or is it a case of Find the reg then alter each one at a time.
Is there a way of when I enter Y in the comment box it replicates in the CO box on the database
For the said aircraft

Cheers
Nick

Final question Alan
Once I have changed something in the database
Is there a way of showing the update without having to close down and reopen the
Programme

bushfire post #12 "Anyway thanks all for the feedback, I might have been a bit hasty with my post never thought about half the options I have that others don't."

Hey bushfire, you were just playing 'devil's advocate' weren't you.................?

Just to re-iterate posts I made a couple of years ago on the forum, for the keen spotters amongst us,several independent spotting database provides have customised interfaces that sit on top of the Radarbox screen and identify which aircraft within "my flights" have not been logged on the independant database. I personally use Aerodata and it works a treat.
If I have say 40 live aircraft in my flights, I am able to immediately see which I've never seen before

Pm me if anyone wants to know more
