3. If you want to have a yearly database for contests during that year, but keep your "DX" (general purpose) log complete, and not broken up each year.

Q. Do you want to just copy a log from one database to another?
A. Don't use ADIF. Use File/Copy this contest to another database.
Why?  It's way faster.  It is more likely that there will be a  bug in ADIF import/export than in this method.
Why would you want to copy a database like this?
1. If you want to keep one database for all QSOs but log individual contests in an new database for maximum performance on slower computers.
2. If you want to keep a database for a particular time period and want to consolidate logs.
