ADIF Conversion failure

ADIF Conversion failure
Good day!  

Cannot Import an ADIF file made using log4OM,  and cannot import a file made with ADIFMaster.  Process concludes with this error message:  "File not found."    I read the user manual and elected to "Continue" - and I also tried to create fields - with no success.  ADIF file has only Standard ADIF fields.  

Can you suggest what I am doing wrong? 

Thank you.    K8JHR

RE: ADIF Conversion failure

First of all, are you using latest 5.99 version? Please explain in detail all the steps because the "File not found" error is not usual at all. In fact it's the first time I hear from this error.

Please upgrade to the latest Swisslog version and try again and send me a detailed report. We can arrange a Teamviewer session if you are still getting problems but you should not get any problems at all.

RE: ADIF Conversion failure
Yes - I am using the latest version.


1) Open new database file and enter station ID, etc.
2) Select MENU - File | Import ADI | convert adi file
3) Select ADI file in dialog box - (either one from Log4OM or ADIMaster)
4) Select "continue" in the "Select Field Assignment Table) dialog box
5) Select "finish" in the "Import QSOs - Specifications for conversion" dialog box.
6) Select "OK" in the "Select Current Working Conditions" dialog box.

7) Cry when the error message pops up "File not found."
8) Pound desk when the error message changes to "Conversion Failed!"

Note - Possible work around is to

1) create a new database file.
2) enter one contact entry
3) export to an ADIF file with a unique name I choose
4) open the ADIF file made in the other, former log program in ADIF_Master
5) Save it - writing over the ADIF file I created in Step 3
6) Import the ADIF file made with ADIF_Master (which now has the name of the file created in Step 3)

That seems to work ... although I am not completely confident in the result.

Note - Although I read the user manual, I do not fully understand how the "field assignment" process works.

Question: Is there a diagnostic log I can send to you?

I hope this helps you understand my situation. THANK YOU - James - K8JHR -

Hi James,

It's the first time I receive such error report when importing. Please send me the ADIF file you are trying to import to try to repruduce here this issue. Send it to If all QSO belongs to the same callsign I can make the conversion for you. Just let me know your callsign, name, qth, QTH locator and your working conditions and I will send you back the Swisslog database with your QSOs imported.
