Is there a way to set up a PQ that will give me caches that another cacher has found that I have not?

I am aware that I can go to GC.com and do a "Hide&Seek a Cache" and then do an "Advanced Search" and this will give me a series of .loc files. I can then download them and import them into GSAK.

However, this is tedious and does not bring in info such as Archived, last found, type of cache etc. I don't want to have to cross reference between databases to find if a cache has been archived.

Thanks in advance.

lol- I guess that would depend on who you are stalking.. lol if it's Henry I'm sure he could find a way

I don't think I've ever found a way to do that - as even with the "my finds" you don't get "all the logs", only your own - you do know if it's archived or not thought.

I don't think it can be done with a PQ from one side alone (at least i havent been able to do it). When i'm looking to isolate caches that neither my wife or I have done, I run PQ's under both our accounts, dump both into GSAK and from there into two excel sheets. Once in excel it's just a matter of running a vlookup (this is an AWESOME little excel trick by the way) against the two lists to find the ones that appear on both - or only on one.

I can add a little tutorial on the vlookup if there's any interest.

I think being able to identify caches "not done by me and someone else" would be a handy add on to the PQ functionality - it would be great if groundspeak could add it - maybe as a feature that's only runable against people who've agreed to be your friends on there.
