DXKeeper uses the application specific key APP_DXKeeper_DOK for German DOK.
There is actually a standardized key for this, DARC_DOK. It would be nice if DXKeeper recognized and used this also.

There are also ADIF defined fields for EQSL_QSLSDATE EQSL_QSLRDATE
EQSL_QSL_SENT, EQSL_QSL_RCVD, LOTW_QSLRDATE, LOTW_QSLSDATE,
LOTW_QSL_SENT, and LOTW_QSL_RCVD where DXKeeper uses equivalent
APP_DXKeeper_ tags. It would be nice if DXKeeper dropped the
APP_DXKeeper_ (application defined) tag in favor of the equivalent
standard tag.

+ Thanks, Björn! I forgot about the addition to DARC_DOK to ADIF. The next version of DXKeeper exports DARC_DOK to ADIF and TDF files, and imports DARC_DOK in addition to APP_DXKeeper_DOK.

+ That was done back when those fields were added to ADIF, Joe. See the "ADIF Field Name" column in the "Online QSL Items" section of

https://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxkeeper/Help/Items.htm

+ Note that the database field names did not change, but importing and exporting ADIF and TDF has long been updated.

Except that means it is still necessary to use the APP_DXKeeper_ form
when writing SQL queries/scripts which is a PITA and makes reading or
debugging queries/scripts more difficult.

+ Database field names are not required to be ADIF-compliant. I did not change the database field names because I didn't want to break existing filters or scripts, and because I didn't want to accept two different names for the same database field.

+ You can overcome this "difficulty" by copying

APP_DXKeeper_ 

to the Windows Clipboard when specifying a filter or script that will use these fields; then just type CTRL-V when needed.
