ADIF Import


Menu–>Logbook–>Import ADIF

ADIF import can be used in two different scenarios:

For the user-definable logging fields see: Preferences–>General.
Contest ADIF file: The received and transmitted control numbers can optionally be imported into the Note field.

RUMlog can import the ADIF Text format or the ADX format in XML. RUMlog detects the file format. The ADIF file must have one of the following file extensions:

Initial import

When the log is empty, the options

should be deselected because they make no sense at this point. This can also speed-up the import routine dramatically.

Adding QSOs

When you expect just a few new ones (DXCC, band, or mode) check the option Show New Ones. This will, however, increase the computing time.
With the option No Dupes, the import of the same QSO (same time, band and mode) can be avoided. This may be useful when you want to re-import a modified ADIF file. This option slows down the import routine.

When the option No Dupes is checked, you can use the function Update QSO record. You have to select which fields you want to overwrite. If the affected QSO is already in the log, the selected fields will be overwritten. This may be useful when you manipulate your QSOs using another application.
