Although I have some caches listed in the found category in cachemate, when I run the Macro it says: «No found caches in Filter!» How do I get from clicking on found with the date stamped in cachemate to logging in GC.com. I have CM2GPX installed and I can see that it's running when I execute the macro but like I mentionned I have caches listed in the found category but GSAK doesn't recognize this.

There are several steps.

1) Once you have marked caches marked as found in Cachemate you need to Hotsync the PDA with your computer.

2) You then need to import the found cache data into GSAK. To do this you need to convert the Cachemate data into a GPX file. This is done with the cm2gpx.exe whuch is a program included with GSAK. To run this you need to create a batch file that contains a line something like this:

Quote

C:\Progra~1\GSAK\cm2gpx\cm2gpx.exe -f -o C:\Progra~1\GSAK\cm2gpx\cm2gpx.gpx C:\Progra~1\palm\<PDANAME\Backup\DefaultItems-cMat.PDB


This will create a GPX file in the C:\Program Files\GSAK\cm2gpx folder.

3) Then you need to import the resulting GPX file into GSAK.

4) Once the cachemate data has been imported into GSAK you then can add to the UserNotes etc.

5) You can now use a macro to assist in logging your finds on GC.com

Here is a macro from the GSAK forum that will this, may need to modify a bit to meet your needs,

Thanks for the info. I'm no programmer so I'm not sure I understand the part about running the batch file you reffered to. I'll be working at it between Holiday Visitors at my house and I'll post the results

To create the batch file all you need to do is copy the string below and paste it into a text editor like Notepad.
Then save the file (File > Save As) with the name of cm2gpx.bat

Save this bat file in the C:\Program Files\GSAK\cm2gpx folder.

Batch File String

Quote

C:\Progra~1\GSAK\cm2gpx\cm2gpx.exe -f -o C:\Progra~1\GSAK\cm2gpx\cm2gpx.gpx C:\Progra~1\palm\<PDANAME>\Backup\DefaultItems-cMat.PDB


Note: The portion in RED may need changed to work with your system.

Once you have the bat file created and saved then you need a GSAK macro to run the batch file. The macro referenced in my first post will work but may need some modification for your system.

I followed the procedure you suggested and when I run the macro i still get the message «no found caches in filter». I did a Hotsync with the Palm wich showed one cache in the found category. I had the time marker set and I wrote «test» in the notes. I checked the cm2gpx folder and there was no GPX file there.

Sounds like your batch file is not correct so it's not finding the correct Cachemate file.

Copy the text from your batch file and post it here.

Next post the name of the Palm folder. It can be found by opening My Computer, and then opening the Program Files folder. Most times it is either called Palm or PalmOne. Let me know which one it is?

Then open the Palm or PalmOne folder from above. You should see a folder that matched the Owner Name you gave your PDA. What is that name?

Now open that folder. Do you see a file called

Quote

DefaultItems-cMat.PDB
?

Once you answer these question we can check the batch file to make sure it is correct.

I copied the file above in the cm2gpx folder like you mentionned and I replace the red portion with «palmOne\MarioMcGraw». I checked and found the file «DefaultItems-cMat.pdb»

Also, I tried ExpressLogger wich is a webpage that lets you load your «DefaultItems-cMat.pdb» file and log your caches in the same manner the GSAK Macro would and it worked. I'm sure it's probably something minor that's preventing me from getting it right.

That's the info I was looking for. So you batch file looks like this;

Quote

C:\Progra~1\GSAK\cm2gpx\cm2gpx.exe -f -o C:\Progra~1\GSAK\cm2gpx\cm2gpx.gpx C:\Progra~1\palmOne\MarioMcGraw\Backup\DefaultItems-cMat.PDB


Correct?

And the batch file is located in the C:\Program Files\GSAK\cm2gpx folder, correct?

And your batch file is called cm2gpx.bat, correct?

If the above is all correct then lets try this. Go to the C:\Program Files\GSAK\cm2gpx folder, right click on the cm2gpx/bat file and select edit. This will open the batch file so you can read the contents.

Change the batch file by adding Pause on a seperate line under the original text. Like this:

Quote

C:\Progra~1\GSAK\cm2gpx\cm2gpx.exe -f -o C:\Progra~1\GSAK\cm2gpx\cm2gpx.gpx C:\Progra~1\palmOne\MarioMcGraw\Backup\DefaultItems-cMat.PDB

Pause


Then click on File and select Save.
Close the batch file window and double click on the batch file.
A DOS window will open as the batch file runs. You will see a couple lines of text appear as the batch file runs. Please copy and paste those lines here. Also after you have copied and pasted the text here select the DOS window and press the enter key. The DOS window will close. Look to see if there is now a cm2gpx.gpx file in the cm2gpx folder.

Ok, I added the pause line in the batch file, saved and ran it. I couldn't copy the text from the DOS window but when I looked in the folder, there it was... «cm2gpx.gpx». When I clicked on that file, it opened GSAK and asked to load the file. I loaded it and it said that it updated 18 waypoints. When it switched to my database it showed that my Found cache count was up by 18. This doesn't reflect my true Found count but we're making good progress. After my last «myfinds» PQ once I logged all my caches on the GC.com website, I should have had 322 found in GSAK but it showed 316. I was short by 6. Now it shows 334... up by 12.

At this point would you suggest that I delete all of my database in GSAK & cachemate and get a fresh start? If so, how do you suggest I set up my new databases?

I've got a couple questions to try to get a grip on your question about the number of finds.

1) How many total caches have you found?

2) How many found caches does Geocaching.com show you have found?

3) How many found caches does GSAK show you have?

4) Do you want to use GSAK to keep track of all your finds?

As to your other question, here is how I have my GSAK setup;

1) I have a number of databases for different areas here in Ohio. These databases are used for Non-Found caches. I populate and update these databases with different Geocaching Pocket Queries.

2) I have a seperate database for Found caches only.

3) When I return home from a day of caching, I hotsync my PDA.

4) I then run a GSAK macro that runs the cm2gpx.bat file, and then updates the found caches in the select area database.

5) I then run a macro that displays the UserNotes for each found cache (one at a time) allowing me to input any additional comments about the cache. It then copies the UserNotes to the Windows clip board, then the macro opens the GC.com logging page for the selected cache. I then past the UserNotes information into the logging page, select Found and then click on Submit (The macro also saves any comments I entered from above in the UserNotes). Once all caches have been logged the macro then moves all Found caches to the Found database.

1) I have 322 found caches
2)My statbar on the GC.com websites shows 322
3)GSAK showed 316 after I loaded MyFinds PQ. I ran the PQ after logging my last find and my stat bar showed 322 at that point. When the PQ loaded it also showed 322 waypoints

On the second topic...

I guess 1 & 2 are user preference and I'm still not sure which way I want to go; if i want to keep all in the same place or separate different regions like you mentionned

3,4 & 5 are what I'm interested in accomplishing.

So is GSAK now showing the correct number of finds?

Now back to steps 3, 4, and 5.

Just to clarify, when you double click on the cm2gpx.bat file it created a cm2gpx.gpx file correct?

Also what version of GSAK are you running?

Below is a copy of the macro I use to run the cm2gpx.bat file and imports the cachemate data. Copy this text and paste it into a new Note Pad. Save it as cm2gpx.txt Save this file in the C:\Program Files\GSAK\Macros folder. To run this macro you can either create a macro button by following the instructions Add GSAK Macro Buttons or go to Macro > Run and navigate to the macro.

When run the macro will mark the found caches as Found, it will insert the Found Date and also insert any UserNotes. It will then run a filter that will only show the caches marked as found.

Once we see that this works we can then work on setting up a logging macro.

I partially figured out the found count problem. It logged duplicates of found caches. 18 caches were duplicated because they had the smartnames for the code instead of the GC****. Once I deleted those duplicates, GSAK still shows 316 instead of 322

When you load the cm2gpx.gpx file, are you using the File=>Load CacheMate logs and finds? Or are you just loading it like a "normal" .gpx file? Using the first method will update the UserNote and Found info, and can match by either GC**** or smartnames.

OK, fixed the error in the macro. I forgot to delete all the EndIf statements.
That's what happens some times when cutting and pasting from another macro.... :laughing:

That fixed it, I did the Load CacheMate Logs & finds and it didn't duplicate as I've mentionned before. However, I still can't understand why my finds only say 316 instead of 322. I still have to wait a few days before I can run the PQ again.

On that same note... How do I delete or isolate from the rest of the cachemate database the ones marked as found?

The new Macro worked. As Jester suggested, from the file menu, I loaded the CacheMate Logs & Finds and they were updated in GSAK. The specific caches were flagged & the user notes icon was showing.

I think we can go to the next step... Logging.

Almost everything in GSAK is done via filters. To remove found caches, set a filter that excluded found caches. I have a saved filter named 'Huntable' that excludes found, archived, disabled caches, and some others I don't want to bother with. I load it every time I run GSAK. I also have others, and you can do lots of stuff with filters.

It sounds like you have multiple finds for some caches and GSAK is not picking them up. In order for GSAK to count multiple finds:

1. Your GSAK database is being updated with GPX files from gc.com (not loc files)
2. You tell GSAK correctly how to match your found logs.

To get item 2 correct make sure you have the "method for matching hidden and found" caches filled out correctly (Tools=>Options=>General). For more information see the help file or view this section online here http://www.gsak.net/help/hs7690.htm

Once correct, do a "Database=>Repair/Defrag" to force GSAK to resync your database and found counts.

Here is the next step.
This macro will do the following;

1) Filter all Found caches
2) Copy the UserNotes from each found cache (one at a time) to the Windows clip board.
3) Open the individual logging page for the found caches (one at a time).
4) At this point you paste the UserNotes data into the Comments section of the Geocaching logging screen. 5) You then select "Found It" from the drop down. Then click on the "Submit log entry".
6) Next you'll go back to GSAK and click on the Continue button.
7) The process runs step 2 - step 6 for each of your found caches.
8) Once all the caches have been logged on Geocaching.com the next time you click on Continue, the macro will move all the found caches to the Found database.

NOTE: If you do not want the macro to move the found caches to the found database it is easy to remove that function from the macro. The macro could be modified to delete the found cache after all have been logged.

I've worked too hard and appreciate too much the help I've received to stop now. I haven't gotten the chance to work on this the last few days. The Coach was busy with scheduling issues. I will try the last couple suggestions shortly and post the results!

The found caches that I want to remove is not in GSAK it's in cachemate. I delete the found category but that doesn't clear up the caches that have the found box checked.

There are two way you can do this.

Delete all the cache from your main Cachemate Category. if that doesn't work for you, you'll need to open each of your found caches individually then click on the menu and select delete.

The other thing you may want to do is set Cachemate so that when you check a cache as found it will move the cache from your main category to the Found catagory. To do this open Cachemate, then open a cache. Open the menu then go to Option then go to View Options, Check the box that says Set Category Found.
Then once you are done with your found caches you can go to the Found category select the menu and select Delete Records.

I like the second option much more than the first one. That's what I was looking for. Thanks

However, I still can't understand why my finds only say 316 instead of 322. I still have to wait a few days before I can run the PQ again.

On that same note... How do I delete or isolate from the rest of the cachemate database the ones marked as found?


It sounds like you have multiple finds for some caches and GSAK is not picking them up. In order for GSAK to count multiple finds:

1. Your GSAK database is being updated with GPX files from gc.com (not loc files)
2. You tell GSAK correctly how to match your found logs.

To get item 2 correct make sure you have the "method for matching hidden and found" caches filled out correctly (Tools=>Options=>General). For more information see the help file or view this section online here http://www.gsak.net/help/hs7690.htm

Once correct, do a "Database=>Repair/Defrag" to force GSAK to resync your database and found counts.



Ok now I'm a bit confused. Here's the problem. I didn't log any more caches since MYFinds PQ ran and showed322 waypoints. a week ago. At that time, when I loaded the GPX file in GSAK, my database showed 316 finds. Today, seven days later, when I was able to run the PQ again, it still showed 322 waypoints but now my GSAK database shows 323 found caches. The GC.com websites shows that I have 322 finds.

I looked into the option above, selected «exact match» and did a defrag. GSAK still shows 323 finds.

I don't know what a «multiple find» is

What this means is that at some stage you probably logged a find on a cache more than once, but then deleted it. Unfortunately the "Delete" action is not reflected in the GPX file so GSAK still has one more found log in the database than the "My Finds" PQ.

However, this is quite easy to remedy. Please see this post

When I set the Found to «greater than or equal to: 2» It seems as thought the filter doesn't operate. The filter menu remains on screen and the results shown are the same as if I clear all tabs of the filter menu.

Should I delete the whole database and reload the PQ's?

:laughing: Hooray! it worked!
To recap...
1.Log finds in PDA
2.Check found box and mark time
3.Hotsync PDA
4.Run cm2gpx macro
5.File>Load cachemate logs & finds
6.Run>Semi-Automatic Log Found Caches On Geocaching.com

I almost hate to ask... Is there a way to tie it all (step4,5,6) together in one step? There was an earlier mention of a Macro Button. Would that work?

Yes you can combine the two macros together, or you can add an additional code at the end of the CM2GPX macro that will give you a choice to run the semi-auto logging macro.

See this post Add GSAK Macro Button

If you want to add the code to the end of the CM2GPX macro add the following


Choose msg="Bulk Log found caches now?" opt1=No opt2=Yes
	If $Result = 1
	Cancel
	EndIf
	If $Result = 2
	Macro File=$_Install\Macros\<Name Of Your Semi-Auto Logging Macro>
	EndIf

Hey N8OFP - Del,

Care to help out another newbie?

I have been following along. Here is what I do:

1. Mark caches as found in CacheMate
2. Hotsync Palm
3. Run CacheMateLog.txt macro
4. Log each cache and then hit CONTINUE

After the last one is logged, I get this error:

log_on_gccom is the name I gave to the macro file. This file is located in: C:\Program Files\GSAK\Macros\log_on_gccom

This error is because your file name is incorrect and GSAK can't find it. You need to add the file extension to the end of your macro name. Change the

to

The error your seeing below says you don't have a database called Found. The macro was written to move all the caches in which the Found box was checked to the Found database after the last one was logged on GC.com.

Theew are two ways to fix this issue.

1) Create a new database by clicking on Database then clicking on New. Name the database Found

2) If you don't want a seperate database for the caches you have found then remove the following lines of code from your CacheMateLog.txt macro.

Quote

# Move Found Caches From Selected Database To Found Database
ShowStatus msg="Moving Found Caches To Found Database"
Database Name=$Database Action=Select
MFilter If=$d_Found
IF $_FilterCount > 0
Macroset Dialog=MoveCopy VarName=$MoveCopy
MoveCopy Settings=<macro>
ENDIF


If you think that some time in the future your may want to use this feature your can remark out this portion of the macro code by placing a # in front of each line. This will cause the macro to skip this section.

I must have a different version of the macro than you, because I don't have that section to delete or comment out.

And I do have a "found database".

Here is the version number from the beginning of my macro which I just downloaded last night using your link.

CacheMateLog.txt v1.6-20060425

The easiest way to figure this out would be for you to open the macro file, copy and paste it here. That way I can see what your macro is doing.

# by Pasha Phares
# REQUIRES: GSAK V6.6.1.14 or higher
#
# Macro to get the latest copy of Cachemate's
# backup database, extract the finds, update
# the local copy, then sequentially (by found
# date and distance from home) open the
# GC.com logging page with the user notes
# from the local record copied into the
# clipboard. Once logging is complete, finds
# are moved to another database if the user
# has defined that.
#
# REQUIRED: nothing. GSAK has added features
# that allow the macro to take care of every-
# thing for you. :laughing:
#
# Optional: If you have want to move or copy
# your found caches to a different database
# after logging them, you need to have saved
# settings in the Move/Copy Waypoints dialog
# and be prepared to specify that saved set-
# ting name.
#
# The default behavior of the CacheMate
# import is to prefix the log with the log
# time (allowing you to log in the order in
# which you found), to place the CacheMate
# data in the User Log field, to Replace
# existing logs, to put the YYYYMMDD into the
# User Sort field, and to match cache records
# using the GCxxxx code. If you want to
# change these things, you can do so, but
# your settings MUST have "Set user flag if

I have an idea of what maybe the issue your seeing.
I think that as you were going though the setup of the macro variables the first time you ran the macro there was a problem with some of the information entered.

Please do the following.

1) Double click on My Computer
2) Double click on the C Drive
3) Double click on Program Files
4) Double click on GSAK
5) Double click on Macros
6) Double click on the Logem.dat file
7) Copy the contents of that file and paste it here.

I also need to know the name of the database you want to copy your found / logged file into. Make sure it is spelled just like it appears in the GSAK Database dropdown...

The database is called Found

I can duplicate the error but not sure what the issue is yet.

What version of GSAK are you running. Help - About

OK, I figured it out. Helps to read the entire instructions before trying the macro... :laughing:

What you need to do is;

1) Click on Database
2) Click on Move / Copy Waypoints...
3) Set the Destintion database to Found
4) Set Move or Copy Waypoints? to Move
5) Set If waypoint already exists in the Destination Database to Replace
6) Set If waypoint does NOT exist in the destination database? to Add
7) Click on the Save button
8) Enter Found in the Enter a name for these settings field.
9) Click on OK.

Now run your macro. It should now run correctly.

Wow! What a thread so must add to it.

I do all of that said but don't get a cm2gpx.gpx file created. I deleted all caches in CacheMate except those in the found category and inside backup my updated file is called MainItems-cMat.PDB and it only contains found caches. The noted macro (run convert and also import to GSAK) says no gpx found which is correct, a gpx isn't created.

Here is my BAT

C:\Program Files\GSAK\cm2gpx\cm2gpx.exe -f -o C:\Program Files\GSAK\cm2gpx\cm2gpx.gpx C:\Program Files\palmOne\Bill\Backup\MainItems-cMat.PDB


?

Tks

Are the caches flagged as found within CacheMate? Not just in the Found catagory, but has the "found?" checkbox on the log screen checked?
