Bob, Thanks for the suggestion.  Unfortunately, a small number of RUN1  
QSOs were made on the STN2 computer, so I will not be able to do exactly as you 
 have suggested.  
K1XX has suggested using Excel to make the changes and then reconstructing  
the CAB file, and that is probably what I will do.  Either way, each of you 
 have given me solutions that I can work with.
Do you think that my suggestion of having a message prompt the operator to  
set the Station Type when a network is established can (or will) be 
implemented  in a future WT release?
Thanks, George.

Many people run into this problem when operating as a Multi-2.    They 
forget to set RUN1 and RUN2.

Assuming all RUN1 QSOs were made on the computer called STN1  (or similar), 
and all RUN2 QSOs were made STN2, it's a simple matter (for  those skilled 
with advanced text editors), to use Win-Test to export the log  as a .txt 
file, including the station name, then copy and paste that column of  data 
(only) into your Cabrillo file, changing STN1 to "0" and STN2 to "1".  

If you don't have an editor that can paste columns, just send me your  .WT4 
file (not your Cabrillo file), and I'll do it for you.  You  can locate 
your .WT4 file by selecting File | Explore | /log directory from  the Win-test

We ran a two-transmitter network in WinTest for yesterday's NAQP.   We got 
nearly to the end of the contest before I realized that I had not set  the 
Station Type for Run-1 and Run-2 for the two radios.  Since all  Qsos were 
logged as Run-1, I now must go thru several hundred Qsos and  change them from 
Run-1 to Run-2.
Is there an easy way to do this in the log?  I know that  I can go thru the 
Cab file and do a search and replace in Note Pad, but I  would like to do 
it in the log file if I can.
Here is a suggestion: In WT, have a message prompt the operator to set  the 
Station Type when a network is established.  I'm sure that  many users 
would benefit by having this feature.
