Look at the PAQSO.MLT file for the PA QSO Party, which has DX as a mult. 
The added line looks something like:
DX Station:??? DX:???? A,B,C,D ....??? 8,9:
where those letters run A to Z, omitting K, N, and W, and then 1 through 9.
Compare the number of spaces, colons, etc. for correct syntax.
Again, this concerns a rule change that affects only Ohio stations.

I had errors when NA tried to load the new mlt file. I modified the last line in the file to look like this: 
DX Station:???????????? DX:?? :???? ;
It now loads without error and counts "DX" as?one multiplier per mode.
My modified mlt file is attached.
Hopefully Dave will weigh in and tell us if my "fix" is OK to use.
Later,? Joe

New NA Files For Ohio QSO Party 

Beginning in 2012, the rules for the Ohio QSO Party were changed for? 
in-state (i.e., Ohio) stations only.? In prior years, DX stations (which? 
send "DX" as their location abbreviation) had no value as multipliers? 
for the Ohio stations that worked them.? Beginning with the 2012 OhQP,? 
"DX" now counts as a multiplier. Since non-Ohio stations can only work? 
Ohio stations in the contest, this change only affects Ohio stations. 

In order to properly support the scoring for this new rule, the? 
operation of the NA Logging Program must be revised.? QSOs with "DX"? 
stations (which formerly provided no multiplier credit) now need to be? 
scored appropriately.? Fortunately, the NA program itself does not need? 
to be revised, but two of its support files for OhQP need to be updated: 

OHQSO1.CRT? ? ? The Contest Rules Template File for in-state (Ohio)? 
stations in OhQP 
OHQSO.MLT? ? ?? The Multiplier List File for in-state stations 

Simply download these files from the DATOM Engineering Home Page at? 
http://www.datomonline.com and copy them over the existing files on your? 
computer.? These files will work with any NA 10 version, as well as the? 
free demo version on the OhQP web site.? Again, only stations operating? 
from Ohio need these new files. 

Good luck in the 2012 Ohio QSO Party this weekend, August 25, 2012,? 
starting at 12:00 noon EDST.
