DXKeeper Enhancement request: Use SQL to select QSL Candidate Message instead of Default QSL Message

Neil W3ZQI
 

Hello Dave and Group:
  Please accept this DXKeeper enhancement request which builds on request #498 (ability to specify different default QSL messages for hardcopy, eQSL, and LotW QSLs).
 
  Use SQL to select QSL Candidate Message instead of Default QSL Message.
 
SQL examples here to select a QSL Candidate Message instead of the Default QSL message.  First True SQL statement wins.   Might need a new keyword for type of QSL.
   DXCCID = "1"        -- selects Msg3: "Plse QSL, seeking RAC Canadaward, 73"
   %typeQSL = "E"     -- selects Msg8: "Authenticated eQSL, 73"
 
Many thanks and 73,
Neil W3ZQI

+ You can filter the Log Page Display to select whatever subset of QSOs you wish, and then use the "Modify QSOs" panel (Advanced Sorts, Filters, and Modifiers" window) to set their "QSL Msg" items to whatever values you wish.

+ If you'll be doing this frequently with the same filtering and QSL messages, you can define a script to invoke the procedure with one mouse click.

Hi Dave:
  Your recommendation of a script sounds very effective.  While the original intent was to preset messages as contacts are made (especially with immediate upload to eQSL and LOTW in effect), a script will benefit my bureau/direct card mailings.

+ LoTW does not accept "QSL messages".
