[WriteLog] How to batch print labels across several files

I handle this situation by not using WL QSL labels.  Instead I export the 
contest log as an adi file and then import those QSO's into my general 
logger, in my case DXBase.  Then from the general logger I manage the QSL 
card info, print labels, track DXCC, WAS, WAZ, etc.  This method gets all 
the QSO's from various contests, bands and modes into a common data base 
where they are much easier to work with.
