Before giving up on exporting it, cast about for text-based methods of
exporting it to various spreadsheet programs. You may spend a week
figuring out how to do it, but that's a LOT less than retyping it. :)
Several years ago, I dug out old logs from the '50s when I was W8FNI,
then the 60s and 70s when I was W9NEC. All paper. My first challenge was
to try to figure out what time zone I was using, and in most, I still
don't know. Other tasks have percolated to the top, and I've never taken
the time to type most of them (although I did start).
