Explaining your difficulties could be a first step towards the solution...
what kind of issue do you have?

No it does not, if it did there would be many users complaining out of our thousands of users.

You seem to be the only person with this issue

I assume you are referring to "Auto Generating Contest Serial Numbers"? If so, I've just selected Contest (F4), Ticked "Enable Contest Mode" , selected "Auto Generate". I then entered a Callsign and saved it to my log. The Sent Serial Number incremented ok.

Apologies if I misunderstood.

Thanks for your reply David yes it is ok with just the serial number like 001 but some contest are like 001 27 when i do this it dose not recognize the 27 even if i put it in the suffix it still dose not recognise it . The same with the received serial number if it is just say 004 it is ok but when i add a number like 004 25 it dose not recognize the 25 that is the problem .

I wish everyone would understand that Log4OM is not a CONTEST logger and never meant to be. It has a very simple contest mode and does not cover all the various requirements of all the different dedicated logging programs. That's for those like N1MM and Terry has given you the info on how to deal with this issue.

The focus of Log4OM as stated many, many times is a logger for QSOs and not on contests. So, beating a dead horse will get you nothing more then a dead horse.

Cheers!
