    Had a bad bsod and had to revert to a disk image dated last month, so naturally I lost all my wsjt-x qso's since then. I did have a backup on another HD of HRD logbook with the qso's, but how do I import HRD into WSJT-X? I did export an adi from HRD with the missing qso's but it's a different format than the WSJT-X format. Any ideas?

    I can use 'find and replace' in MS Word to remove a lot of the unnecessary items from the HRD .adi file, but then I will need to move some things around unless the order of items in wsjt-x doesn't matter. I'm not sure. I think I'm getting close. It will be easy and quick to remove the unnecessary stuff. Getting the <eor> and carriage returns may be an issue, but I'll find out. I've already gotten rid of all the unnecessary <cr>'s. Wildcard usage will be a help.

    Use ADIFMaster. Easy Peasy. No, the order of the columns/fields or the superfluous columns /fields don't matter.

    Well, if order doesn't matter, I've already got all the info in the HRD .adi, no reason to play with it, I'll just copy/paste it into the wsjt-x log and see what it does. I notice there are some fields that are named differently though.

    I finally just used adimaster, it let me sort the columns, get rid of ones that aren't in wsjt-x, the only difference is names and another field is not there and it saved it in all caps, but it's the same format as wsjt-x. I just copied the ones from the exported adi from HRD that I was missing and inserted them in the appropriate place in wsjt-x log.adi. I also had to sort the date column, HRD saves it newest to oldest top to bottom, jt-x oldest to newest top to bottom. Probably doesn't matter, but I did it anyhow. WSJT-X didn't complain when I restarted it with the new adi.
