[NA-User] CQP---Alpine County Error

Good catch OM, but your analysis is incorrect.  The .MLT file has an error.

If you look at the CALCTY.MLT file (which contains the multipliers for 
non-CA entries) you find that the Alpine County line looks like this:

Alpine:                 ALPI  CTY:  6;

The county abbreviation "ALPI" is missing a colon after it, which NA 
needs to parse out the abbreviation from the line of data.  You'll see 
evidence of this in NA if you press Alt-L to get the abbreviation list - 
NA thinks the abbreviation is "ALPI  CTY".

Simply add a colon after "ALPI" (with your editor in overstrike mode to 
keep everything lined up) and all will be fine when you restart NA.

I apologize for this error.  The edited CQP files were provided by one 
of the W6s and I failed to fully check it out before distributing it.

In-state CQP entries have a different multiplier file so they will not 
have this problem.
