    Evening all,

    Trying to config SpotCollector...

    Running SpotCollector standalone (no other DX Lab software installed) and using N3FJP ACL for logging. When I export a mdb log file from ACL and try to use it as my SpotCollector "log file referenced for award progress" I get an error.... " Specified log file is improperly structured(does not contain a QSO table)."

    Any thoughts ?

    tnx es 73

    Just because ACL and DXLab both use .mdb files for storing the logbooks does not mean that the internal tables are configured the same way.

    SpotCollector is obviously expecting a .mdb file with the internal tables configured like the rest of DXLab, but ACL's .mdb file has a different internal structure. In short, they're not compatible.

    Does SpotCollector support the use of an ADIF file for award progress checking? If so, then that's going to be the way forward.
