LOGDRAFT Prints Many More Pages Than Expected
Problem: When printing a boring log, LOGDRAFT prints many more pages than is expected.
Explanation: There's three common reasons for this:
- On your data entry screen, check the prompt that asks you for sampling lengths: if it says "Sample Length (ft. or m.)" and you're entering sampling lengths in inches or centimeters, you're going to get sampling lengths that are much longer than you would expect.
- Unless you've set up your Windows regional settings to treat a comma as a decimal point, LOGDRAFT interprets the "42,5" (that's the number 42, followed by a comma and the number 5) as 425 -- unfortunately, it's common to accidentally hit the comma key instead of the decimal key when typing numbers. Check the depths that you've entered -- make sure that you haven't entered a comma instead of a period, then do the same for your sampling lengths.
- Check the boring's groundwater depths: make sure you haven't entered a comma instead of a decimal point and make sure that the depth that you've entered is correct.
