Hi Ian,

Paul may give you a better answer than this but it is very easy to edit a
Cabrillo log using Microsoft's Notepad or some other text editor.

Process both files as normal using SDCheck, and you get two separate
xxx.log files.  Open both xxx.log files using Notepad (open Notepad and use
the open command to open the files in question).  Select and cut the 16
QSOs from the first file and past them in (that is, paste them over) the
faulty QSOs in the longer file.  Check that all the columns are right and
nothing has been left out.  Save the revised file and you are in business.

Good luck,

Tim Ei2KA
