[WriteLog] SSB wav files?

Gary and all,

I used Audacity program.
Recorded several wave files, like 1.wav, 2.wav, cq.wav. In the same
configuration, exactly as described.

I also tried to save it as msg1.wav, msg2.wac etc. Does not make difference.

Then I created ham/wavefiles/ directory in Writelog and exported all wave
files there. Not being sure, if I have to export or "Save project as aup" I
also saved files as aup. just in case.

I tried to "browse" to WL Memory Setup. It does Not browse. WL shows in
Memory Setup as "wav" files but wants my wave files in "wl" format, WL does
not see wav.files . I do not know how to covert "wav" files into "wl" files,
I am not sure if it is necessary.
If I rename wave files into wl and backeting them <   >, as described in
Help file of WL, then I cannot save those  <  >. It looks really confusing
for me at the moment, the Help file regarding SSB wave files, trying hard
with zero success so far...
I hope that this is relatively simple to load those wave files, however the
way of explanation there in Help file for me is ... I do not follow so
