[WL-USERS] RE: Report tokens

I'm not certain what you want to do with the tokens, but I can offer
some info about how they work. The "multiplier module" and the
template file for each contest comprise a matched pair. That is,
when you ask WL to create a summary sheet, the multiplier module
for that contest searches the template for that contest for the
tokens it happens to know about.

The original design didn't require any consistency from one contest
to the next, so I'm sure you will run across examples of where token
"ABC" in contest X and token "ABC" in contest Y mean different things.

Another tidbit I can offer is that there is no use adding a new
*ABC* token to an existing template hoping that WL will think that
token means something. Right now, there is a perfect match between
the tokens a module expects and the ones in its template. That
is, if you don't see the token already in the template, there's
no use adding it, even if you see such a token in a template for
some other contest.

None of this is justify or defend the way WL currently works, or
to say whether it will or will not remain this way in the future.
This is just an explanation of how it does work now.

I'm almost there, creating a summary sheet as I like it to look.  I'm
looking for the token for raw (non-duped) QSOs.

Can anyone help with this specific item or a list of all the possible

Thanks in advance,
