Thanks Paul, I was puzzled by the 'blank field' which I got.
I haven't done the cabrillo SD check yet ( checking and tidying up 1750 
contacts takes a bit of time) so it will probably be ok when I do
I meant to ask an additional question for the group, not an SD issue, so here 
it is.
I had a lot of callers who didn't know the exchange format. Whilst many 
understood my explanation and then gave their age. there were many who didn't 
have command of english.
In those cases I entered 001. Has anyone previous experience of how JARL treat 
this type of contact (which must run to many hundreds) in the combined logs. I 
am putting in a competetive entry and don't wish to incur unnecessary penalties 
that might cost me a place.

Hello Brian,

It does here :-)  - and leaves the field blank.
That is as intended for serial fields, which is how SD treats "age" in AA.

Then, for Cabrillo, SDCHECK inserts zero.  If you're
getting something else, please send me your .ALL

Don't know - that's really a question for JARL.

You can edit them within SD, or by using the Edit
option in SDCHECK.
