Pocket Query Not Working

Why on Earth do so many of you generate a PQ to list caches you've already found? You don't need to generate a PQ to do that.

I run a myfinds PQ after a weekend of caching, import it in a myfinds GSAK database and run a statistics macro that after creating all kinds of stats uploads the result to my profile. Using the PQ means my finds have the correct status (available/temp disabled/archived) unlike my Finds database that just holds all my finds + all cache info like additional WPs, codes, answers, lock codes.....

 

So there you go, that's my reason for running a MyFinds PQ.

The question was "why would you generate a PQ to list caches you've already found." The MyFinds PQ is already created and ready to use for any PM. Creating another PQ which which only sets the Cache "That I have found" box won't include any archived caches and will have constraints on both the radius and total number results.

Who said anything about creating a PQ with "that I have found"? Myfinds includes archived finds so that's why. I would never create a "normal" PQ with already found caches (got them in GSAK anyway).

The OP, Ed_S asked:

 

"Why on Earth do so many of you generate a PQ to list caches you've already found? "

 

"Generate a PQ" implies creating a new PQ rather than running one that already exists.

FWIW, I often take new geocachers to visit caches that I've already found. In such cases, I include caches I've found in my PQs.
