I'm trying to get back into ham radio and contesting again. My old DX logging software was DX-Base and I have a MDB file of my contacts.

I see that DX-Base stopped making updates in 2007. I am in need of new logging software.

The Primary Driver in the selection process will be the ability to import my old DX-Base database (probably Microsoft Access 1997) into the new software.

Yes, it's been a long time......

Thanks in advance for any suggestions,

Bob

DX Keeper has a page on importing contacts from other logging programs

http://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxkeeper/Help/Import.htm

These program require the use of ADIF files--most modern programs can export and import ADIF files.

Hi Zack,
DXKeeper didn't work, unfortunately. DXKeeper and all the other logging programs are looking for an ADIF file that has already been created by DXBase. This is where my problem lies - I don't have that ADIF File. I am trying to find a way to create one.

Thanks for the suggestion though. If you or anyone else out there has any thoughts, I'm all ears.

I appreciate anything that can help,

Bob
