Operations - Flight Numbers

Burkhard,

I have converted to working in operations rather than schedules as you recommend. I find that there is a discrepency between the FSX documentation for formats. My flight numbers are 4 digits in some cases ie. 8145 and MTX only accepts 814 when importing the Operations file. There is nothing I can do with the programme to make it accept the fourth digit. The FSX traffic display allows 4 digits as they show examples in their documentation. Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug?

Most likely you have added a leading blank. If you keep the digit format it can import 4 digits. To speed things up, all these files are imported in fixed format, I think it can even import 5 digits.

#####1315,EDDH,311,##8789

is a valid format and gets imported, where I have written # for a blank

Ah...yes. I tried that first before posting but it turns out I needed to zero the database flights from maintenance before it would read the 4 digits in that format. All fixed now...thanks.

A tip for people...always read your Operations file twice so that you have Slots shown. If you only read the file once the aircraft will not show up.
