Re: Editing blocks of data in ACL logsheet

Ken Bell

ADIF Master does a pretty good job and it’s free.

If you need to do some work with your file in Excel, that it uses a semicolon instead of a comma to delimit fields. You’ll need to change on one end or the other.

I have hundreds—if not thousands--of ACL log entries I want/need to edit. In a couple of cases the original adi files from other applications were corrupted and the original source data is not available.

I haven’t found any means in ACL of doing block edits of selected fields or such.

I can sort and highlight the needed line entries and copy them to clipboard and ultimately to Excel (pasting to TextPad and word were useless).

Now, how do I get the edited line items back into ACL?

I don’t the reverse of the Edit/Copy Selected Records to Clipboard function: Import and replace selected records, for instance.

Do I convert data in Excel to adi file format and export as a text file and change the extension to .adi and then import it into ACL?
If I import the ADI file will it overwrite the existing log entries or will it just be presented as duplicates in the log?

Thanks for any info anyone can provide.
