Jim and John,

I just replicated the problem here as well.  I am a QRZ subscriber, so
normally when making a QSO I hit Update QSO in the Callsign/Mgr lookup.  But
I have found it does not update with new data unless the field in the
logging window is blank.  For example, if I have already worked the station
and from a previous contact have a four digit grid entered, the update will
not change that entry -- even though QRZ is showing the entire six digit
grid.  I have to delete the prior value and then click on Update QSO.  The
new six digit value is then entered into the empty grid field.  Same goes
for name, city, county -- any of the other fields.

So when it comes to county, I just found a prior QSO that did not have a
county filled in.  I attempted to Update QSO from the Callsign/Mgr lookup
window.  The county shows up in the log entry window and then I save.  But
when I reopen that QSO, the new county info is not there.  Like Jim said, I
have to do it two or three times.  I noticed that the original blank county
field had two dashes (--).  My theory is that the program sees those two
dashes and assumes that the county field has data in it, and then does not
update the new data.  You have to click in that field to get it to delete
the -- and then it appears that the new data will fill and then be saved.
Not exactly sure about this behavior, but it appears to be consistent with
how the other fields get updated.

73,

Dave, N4QS

The third time (once the state had been saved), I was able to change the
county and save the QSO (using ENTER)
