ADIF import problem
As I mentioned in an earlier blog I had stopped using HRD on my aging Laptop because it was getting too slow - but found winlog32 did an excellent job, and had "some" degree of control over my FT817, (basic frequency display), but it did a good job - and so I had settled on using that logger to do a "Lot" of post logging to try and get the log completely up-to-date (still have loads to catch up on). I recently took another look at HRD and liked the look and feel of it (The older version 4.00) which ran ok'ish......! So I decided to export my log from winlog32 as an ADIF file - then import into HRD as a fresh install - it appeared to import the ADIF txt file ok, but imagine my horror when it would not save it into the HRD database, throwing up an error something along the lines of "time date fields exceeded". I have looked at the raw .txt file and cannot see whats wrong - I was under the impression that a standard had been set with regard to the import/export of "Log-files" and that swapping would not present a problem - this appears not to be the case - I have tried several times without success - all I know is that under HRD the actual logfiles are stored as .mdb files - now I am not sure if this is an HRD problem, or MS. I am dissapointed as I really did want to go back to the earlier version of HRD - especially running it with the FT817 as it gives such good control of the rig - I am actually stumped over this, I do not know how to alter the file so as HRD will accept it - those more knowlegeable than I might shed some light no doubt - Can this mean I cannot transfer my entire log ? I might try and import it into some other logger just to see if it is recognised, as an experiment - feel free to pass on any ideas.
