Mike, not sure what you mean about a "corrupted" contest log. If the only problem is the date is wrong in the log, the best way to fix it before sending it in is to generate the Cabrillo log, open the Cabrillo log in Notepad, then using CTRL+F you can replace all the old dates with the new dates. It's "Find and Replace".

 Subject: [WriteLog] After contest log entry problem
I corrupted a Writelog contest log without a backup. 
I have a printed log of the contest so I want to reenter the log so I  can 
send in as a  LoTW file. 
What can I do with the date to go back to the contest date?  Am I  going to 
have to change the date on the PC ?  Hope there is a better  solution. 
Any other tips to save  any other editing while entering each Q.
Its the 10 Mtr contest so the freq will stay on the same band.  No CW  only 
About 200 Q's to reenter.  
tnx 73 Mike  N5MT
