Thank you Paul, 

I will wait for that “re-instatement” so that I can go on with my tutoring my 
friend about SD !

Thanks - I'm seeing the same here, and I don't remember if SD behaved 
differently in the past.? However, I suspect that it was once possible 
to reverse the fields by using Down Arrow.? For example, type IN471 and 
SD displays Sandro I7ALE below the Callsign field - then Down Arrow 
would place I7ALE in the Call field and IN471 in the Exchange field.? 
That doesn't work now.

The program can't work the same way for INORC as it does for other 
contests where the membership number is a pure number - if for no other 
reason than a number cannot be a callsign, and IN471 is interpreted as a 

In the history file HISTORY.DOC, there's an entry for V14.05 (May 2008) 
which says "With a suitable .LST file, SD displays the membership number 
on a callsign match, or the callsign when a membership number is typed.? 
In the latter case, Down Arrow will then swap the membership number and 
callsign - ready for logging."

It look as if that "Down Arrow" feature has gone missing - I will 
reinstate it.
