After the update only the main DB is updated. You need to manually move the data to your favorites list. Make certain you have your present favorites backed up though as it will lose any changes you have made!Hello,
On Monday evening when I up-date the master data-base on my Home patrol from Radio Reference is the up-date also up-dating my favorites or sub data-bases for specific areas?

So how in a large dynamic statewide system are people handling adds/deletes/changes, especially where they've customized some of the Uniden supplied data ? I may have missed it, but I haven't seen a change summary being supplied with the weekly updates, so I'm not sure how to even know when to update specific Favorites......."After the update only the main DB is updated.

I find it's best now to copy and paste changes from the main DB to favorites lists if you have the Extreme upgrade or any changes you made will be lost."
I have to agree with the premise of your post. I don't expect automagic either. But show me what changed especially for locations and systems I care about. It's something that is missing from all scanner software that dumps from RR's stellar dbs. Hey just tag new or deleted TGIDs. I'm not complaining but for the systems I monitor I see several changes every month.... what are they? RR comments show the remarks by db admin. But we are on our own to look for them. I would love to see changes from what was to what is. Have contemplated using visual basic for applications and Excel for this. But end up scouring the web pages with my eyeballs.Paul:
One possible solution would be a three way compare: Old main/New main/Favorite, if Old and New fields the same and Favorite different, leave it alone or more probably present it to the user for decision..Probably never be able to do a totally "automagic" update.. (love that word, used to hear it all the time).. Thanks for the response, at least I know I'm not totally out in left field...
