    Oddly enough, I used to do it with Watcher - one of it's cool features. Once I realized GSAK couldn't do it, I created a macro so it would!

    If you want to try it and need help installing or assigning a toolbar button to it, let me know.

    You got it! And no mistyped linky!

    Your post makes me think, however - for event caches, it might be neat to include the type of event and the date....

    Default Get right on that computer guru Dave....

    Sounds like you have more code to write. I certainly haven't any clue.

    Default New Stats

    Thanks to a new and improved SQLite capability in GSAK macros, I am working on creating the stats page almost entirely from GSAK instead of Excel. It takes over 20 minutes to do the calculations in Excel, I am guessing it will take GSAK about 3 or 4 minutes when I am finished.

    So the stats have been updated today using what I have programmed through GSAK so far. One of the features of the next version of GSAK is county data, which you can obtain using the beta version. So I have added some county data to the stats.

    Thanks again Dad for all your hard work and GSAK certainly does make things a lot easier now doesn't it? I remember the day not too long ago when you stated that GSAK was just not your cup of tea....... Things do change don't they?

    friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.

    Technology changes quickly. Probably by the time I get this the way I want, I'll be able to just download the data to my wristwatch!

    Downloaded Milestone Hides section as per Tat's suggestion.
    Also added "placed by..." for the first caches in the county stats, also per Tat's suggestion.

    Also added Number of "Caches Placed by Day of Week" and "Caches Placed by Month" and "Caches Placed by Year"

    Hey Dad is there a way that I can incorporate this into a South Carolina macro? I'm sure there is but where does one start? Thanks Haffy


    Oh and by the way I have a new email address too. It's For some unknown reason I have lost and can't get back my former email address from Yahoo. This is for everyone else's information as well in here too.
