Re: DXKeeper 1.1.6 is available

Yes, of course I saw that too and Logger is a bit flaky on that
score because it doesn't have separate fields for name and QTH and
the exports the comment field with the <NAME> tag. I could see
what your difficulty was there and actually I thought you did a
pretty good job of unscrambling the mess. Keep in mind that Logger
does not require a colon between the name and the rest of the
comment field, the only real separator is white space. Some of my
entries have a colon because they were imported from yet another
logging program that I used early on. More recent entries that
were made directly into Logger do not have a colon. That may help
you as you attempt to refine the parsing process but you'll never
get it perfect. That comment field is totally free form and can
contain almost anything. Most of my entries do have "name" as the
first word but what comes after that is anybody's guess, it's not
necessarily QTH, in fact I only rarely log QTH.

I noticed a lot of "truncated name" messages. With the
"Import from Logger"
box checked, I look for names and qths being
concatenated in the name field,
separated by a colon; its easy to split these and place
the name and QTH in
their proper fields. But there are lots of situations
where the name field
contains contest info, or names and QTHs without a
separating colon. In
DXView117, I added code to detect this condition and
put the contents of the
name field into the comment field (where there is
plenty of room); let me
know if you think this is a bad idea, or have a better
suggestion.

I've imported your .ADI files several times without a
crash, but clearly
there's a latent defect. I'll take a look at QSO# 3757
to see if it contains
anything unusual, and will add instrumentation to 117
so that we can track
it down.

Has CI-V Commander created any error log files for you
when you rapidly QSY
your TenTec?

Dave,

The import went fine, except for the program error
that occurs at
QSO #3757. I found that all I have to do to recover
from that is
to close and reopen DXKeeper, then start the import again. The
first 3757 are then duplicates and after passing those it
completes normally. Performance is much improved.
I'll send you
the entire ADIF file (privately) so you can see that too.
