Re: Can't upload 10 meter log to server. Error

If you export it to Excel and then sort it, you can re-import it (if it's not illegal, haha, that was a joke). 
If you want to send me a copy of the file, I'll be glad to work on it for you.  At one time in the past, I was a skilled computer programmer.

I tried that, Alek, and it doesn't work.  I've downloaded ADIF Master.  If that doesn't work I'll type in my QSOs to the correct 10-meter program meant for US hams. I only made 161 QSOs and I've got 6 days to submit my log.  If I'm feeling good I could probably enter the whole log in one session.

Simple. You used the DX version of the loggger instead of the US one.
In the DX version, it lists your "sent" report as 59 + serial numbers.
In the US version, it lists your "sent" report as 59 + the two letter code for your state.
You are in the US, so you need to use and submit the correct version.
I don't know but maybe if you open the US version, you will be able to import your log into it and it will correctly list your sent report for each QSO with the proper MA instead of sequential numbers.

I've been in the ARRL 10 meter contest for decades using AC Log.  I've never had this problem submitting my log. Last night I finished the contest and completed a Cabrillo file.  Today I uploaded it to the website given on WA7BNM's contest website.  After uploading I got an error that EVERY single QSO I uploaded was an error.

I think this has to do with the way Massachusetts is broken up on the ARRL's contest upload page.  I am in Western Mass. but during the contest, we don't differentiate between Western and Eastern Mass.  We just give our report as 59 or 599 MA.  Not 59 Western MA or Eastern MA.  At least that's how every station I worked in Massachusetts replied to me when I worked stations in my home state. However, when I upload my Cabrillo file to the ARRL's 10-meter page it is asking me whether I am in Eastern or Western Mass. I enter Western Mass. because that is where I'm located, and I think that's what's causing the error but I have no choice but to enter Western Mass.

However, upon submittal, I am receiving an error for every single QSO.  Here is a copy of my basic info and the first few QSOs that came back from the ARRL's 10-meter upload page.

What the hell am I doing wrong?  I am sitting here with a broken ankle,  I am in a lot of pain and my patience is at an all-time low.  I usually can solve most problems on my own but in the condition,  I am currently in, I'm just not my normal self.  Can anybody offer help?
