Thanks for all the comments. Most people said to use EXCEL (although EI5DI
reckons ACCESS would be even better). Unfortunately I'm only slightly familiar
with these programs so I didn't use them. I do my main logging with paper
rather than software [so I have just finished writing 81 *pages* of logs :( ]

A search on the internet produced <www.qsl.net/ka5wss/logconv> which I found
to do exactly what I wanted; it produced logs in ARRL format from ADIF input
but the "Notes" field was lost. Paul said:

This wasn't a problem because I used a WP to move or delete columns of the log
- I just wanted *any* plain text output. Pity about losing the comments though
(but there weren't many).

I hope this helps someone and, Paul, I would recommend a link to the KA5WSS
site on the SD web pages.
