240 and the Directory-search Function

Recommended Posts

Bear with me... this is a little complicated.The new Directory-search function has some problems and we may have to exercise a little care with it.1. Searching for "airports" seems to be okay, to start.2. Searching for "navaids" on "all states" seems to be okay.3. Searching for "navaids" on a specific state, appears to return the correct NUMBER of entries, but does not return entries for the requested state. Instead, it returns navaids all over the US. For example, searching for all navaids in ALASKA returns 138 entries, probably the correct number, but includes ELY, NEVADA, for example, and does not include BRW, Point Barrow, ALASKA. Doing a search on BRW in the FAA Identifiers slot will return nothing, but on ELY, will return ELY NEVADA (with the state set to ALASKA)After playing with the directory for a while, the "airports" search would start to do the same thing. However, this is not readily reproducable. (For Navaids, it is).Also, after playing with it for a while, FLY2 dropped quietly to the desktop. This, also, was not readily reproducable.You may have the same problems.I am going to limit searches to "all states" and try to avoid searches by state. Art.
