I think you are expecting the program to export information it does
not have - all it can export is what was in the contest exchange.
BTW, there certainly *is* a "State" field in ADIF.
I believe part of your confusion may also arise from the fact that
there are not separate "State" and "Section" fields in the N1MM log
database. The "Section" field in the database is used for states in
some contests and for ARRL sections in other contests, depending on
the contest exchange.
In the RAC contest, N1MM's "Section" field contains the province for
VE contacts and is empty for other contacts. It is exported to ADIF
as "STATE" for the VE contacts, which is correct according to the
ADIF 2.0 spec (the old "VE_PROV" field in ADIF 1.0 has been moved
into "STATE" in ADIF 2.0).
In the NAQP, the "Section" field contains the state/province and it
is correctly exported as "STATE" for both W/K and VE contacts.
In the ARRL Sweepstakes, the "Section" field contains the ARRL
section, and it is exported as "ARRL_SECT" in the ADIF file, which is
correct. A general-purpose logging program like DXKeeper can figure
out the state from the ARRL section on import, but N1MM Logger makes
no attempt to do this on export.
