You could try to edit HARMONIC.IDX in place, just to test this hypothesis on your system. Works for me.

This will be corrected in the next Beta. There are several more fixes needed to the T/C data, as well.

Sorry for the run-around.
Dave
Hey,that WORKS!Thanks!

it's the small case name of secondary station and then the "British Columbia Current" that's needed,right?Makes a sort-of computerese sense...

There are several more secondary current stations I recognize very well with the same problem and I am doing them too. I'll post the idx when I THINK I have it right .

Re: Current Prediction Not Displaying as SPEEDS

As in:
"SEYMOUR NARROWS"
changed to:
"Seymour Narrows, British Columbia Current"

EDIT: actually,they ALL work if I just add
",<space>British Columbia Current" no quotes

seems to work.However there is a SEECHELT Rapids that is a duplicate somewhere in the idx....and I'm going to fool around and get the ARROWS going in the right direction too,but that's just me...

Re: Current Prediction Not Displaying as SPEEDS

Found it.(""Seechelt"-there's supposed to be two)
I recognize these databases alright...same mistakes!Surge Narrows the secondary based on Seymour Narrows-I guess its an old American DB..has the directions flood/ebb backwards.Gee this is fun!Keep an eye out for the guy stuck in the whirlpool!

Re: Current Prediction Not Displaying as SPEEDS

"Please do not modify this file unless you know EXACTLY what you're doing!....# Basic...etc"
..ok.Everything fine.Thanks, Dave, for the flamethrower!...moved and steered some arrows but still haven't managed to steer the Primary Stations(Canadian)- those "North/South only" arrows are darned ugly ...

see? a Primary Current Arrow steered-did Surge,Seymour,Active etc(ongoing in spare time)..took me a LONG time to figure out that I needed to # out the CNAP line to get rid of "northalways" arrows....
I screwed around a tiny bit in Juan de Fuca too...so I can see the diff at the Juan de Fuca/Race Rocks bit...

(PS...Wow,you've done a lot of work on these db's...!)
