You can edit the QSO point just like the grid OR

you can rename your edited file to something like 4X4NJ.NEW
and then type TR READ 4X4NJ.NEW and the program will rework 
the contest.

OR - you can just leave it alone as the log checking software doesn't
even look at what you have for the QSO points - it recalculates it
for each QSO.
