Re: Error log file generated
- Hi Rich,
thanks for the reply.
Ok about the databases.
Yesterday evening I exported adif from the general log, then from the cqww rtty log, then I merged both with a text editor.
I opened a new database, imported the merged file, and all the qso's are displayed.
The only mandatory thing is that the general log has to be dx type (I first tried dx-pedition but the sw suggested me to do that).
Probably, when it tries to manage adif with fields referring to various contest types, it warns you and suggest to use the most general contest type.
In this way one can use N1MM for both contest and non contest qso's.
Thanks for the hints.

Once a QSO is in any contest log in the database, you cannot put that same QSO (same call sign and time) into another log in the same database. To solve this, you would need to keep your "general" log and your contest logs in two separate databases and use the File > Open Database menu item to switch between the two databases.

I'm not sure whether this applies to the DX log type, but for most contest types this field has to match the correct field for that contest. Also, the exchange elements (zone, state/province, etc.) are not always consistent between different contests, so exporting from one contest type and importing into a different contest type can sometimes lead to data being incomplete or in the wrong database field. You can deal with both of these problems by: (1) exporting an ADIF file from both contest types to see how everything is labelled in each one; and (2) using a text editor to change any field tags that are different than the importing contest type needs.
