    Default GSAK 101 finding double logged caches

    I am in the process of logging finds I have had in a database going back about two years. I noticed along the way that I had logged a cache twice somewhere. I knew it was possible to easily find it in GSAK but could not figure out how to do it. So I asked the expert, BrDad.

    ************************************************** ****************************************

    I have a question. Apparently I have logged a cache twice. How do I find out which one?

    Easiest way is in GSAK.


    Update a database of your finds with the "Myfinds" PQ.

    Set a filter in GSAK:
    Search - Filter - click the "Logs" tab.
    Set Required Count to "Greater than or equal to" - 2
    Deselect Select All for Log Types
    Select Found It under Log Types.
    Click Go
    Any caches listed have 2 or more found logs.

    This is a picture of what the filter dialog should be set to:

    Thumbs up

    Another easy way to find duplicate logs is to use the "Find Bad Logs" tool on http://project-gc.com/
    http://project-gc.com/Profile/FindBadLogs
    You don't need to download, install, or run any PQs.
    You sign up to the site using your gc.com login (The site uses the official Geocaching Live API)
    Go to "Find Bad Logs"
    Input a "Profile Name" (this can be your own name or anyone else's name)
    Press the Filter button and receive your results.

    For example http://project-gc.com/Profile/findba...tbutton=Filter
    You double logged GC1MBGZ
    You own quite a few caches where other people have double logged them.

    Some more examples

    Hollora has double logged 3 different caches http://project-gc.com/Profile/findba...tbutton=Filter

    Tat has double logged 9 different caches http://project-gc.com/Profile/findba...tbutton=Filter

    Interesting. Seems like a lot of trouble. I already had the my finds database, as everyone should, so it was just figuring out the right buttons to push.

    I'll have to go back and weed out the duplicates!!!
    The farmer gave permission to place the cache in the field, but the bull charges.

    Tom, maybe you should start with weeding out the ones you've found but haven't logged.... Now that's a project! :P
    Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

    Is there an app for that?
