Hello Jim,

This is likely not an SPAACARs problem (directly), but a problem with your data that was rejected by the database - although the flight time data must have went through. No changes have been made to SPAACARS for quite some time now.

I'll continue checking on my end to see if I can find such errors, but right now the last flight I see was on 9-1-16 (920130) WA30-KGEG.

Please give me additional information on the flight data you were attempting to file (Org and Dest ICAOs, Dates Times, etc. as best as you can recall).

Ideally - the ACARS programs should reject all data that's not acceptable, but I'm not sure that's universally true in all cases for any of our ACARS programs (including our manual entry through the pilot's office).

Jim,

Upon checking further, the last flight you made as described above 9-1-16 (920130) WA30-KGEG did in fact go through, but if you check your email confirmation you'll note that the actual flight date you entered was 7-11-2006. This flight will not show on the home page because that only shows the current (or future dated flights). Your log should show this flight, but you'll have to go back in your log to that date.

I'm not sure how you came up with a date of 7-11-2006 for your flight date, but SPAACARS will happily accept a date entered manually or grabbed from your flight sim's date when you click the 'flight plan' button to auto-populate the data fields of SPAACARS from you FSX flight plan. Dates from the flight plan can be altered by saving and reloading flights, in which case the flight date saved will be the one reloaded and used, or manually changed dates in your flight sim, or even system date and time not set correctly - as flight sim usually defaults to system date/time I believe. Otherwise, it's likely a manual date entry you made in SPAACARS that's the cause.

In this case it appears the flight was uploaded and recorded "correctly" based on the data, you're just looking in the wrong places.

Hope this helps you find the cause.

No worries Jim. Glad you figured it out. What I usually do is just click the little "Day", "Night", "Dusk", "Dawn" setting and don't mess with the date settings- however, I've found that sometimes the GMT time zone ends up being close to midnight at the start of the flight. This means that the end date of the flight will flip to the next day so my flight will be logged in as tomorrows date. I usually don't mess with that, but I can set my date back a day so that my flight ends on the actual day I'm flying. Left as it is, my flight would show tomorrows date, would show on the home page with tomorrows date (and I'd get an email today showing the flight date in the flight information as tomorrow's date), and lastly, my flight log will not show my flight until tomorrow because the pilot's flight log at spa won't show 'future dates'. But - as long as I see it on the home page "arrivals" and get the email, then I know that tomorrow when I check my flight log it will appear there <img src="tinymce/plugins/emoticons/img/smiley-smile.gif" alt="smile">.
