Here you open an existing database for further processing.
Here you create a new database. If you select the name of an existing one its contents will be overwritten.
If the ADIF field EQSL_QSL_SENT is used all records having EQSL_QSL_SENT set to ’R’ will be exported to a file. This file could be uploaded to eqsl.cc for instance. While exporting these data the status of the field EQSL_QSL_SENT is set to yes and if the field EQSL_QSLSDATE was added to your database fields it will be set to the current date.
If the ADIF field LOTW_QSL_SENT is used all records having LOTW_QSL_SENT set to ’R’ will be exported to a file. This file is in ADIF format and might be a base for an upload to LotW.( You still have to convert the file into a digital signed file. ) While exporting these data the status of the field LOTW_QSL_SENT is set to yes and if the field LOTW_QSLSDATE was added to your database fields it will be set to the current date.
If the ADIF field QSL_SENT is used all records having QSL_SENT set to ’R’ will be printed. You can choose as destination either a printer or a file. Printing to file generates a pdf document. You must define the layout of the print output in the QSL Card Setup in the Edit menu. You will be asked if the print was ok. If you say yes, QSL_SENT is set to yes and if the field QSL_QSLSDATE was added to your database fields it will be set to the current date. Otherwise the QSL_SENT and QSL_QSLSDATE remain unchanged.
You can save the definitions ( sql statements ) of your logbook as a file.You can use

Edit ⇒ Create basetables .
Hint If you want to modify your logbook, for instance inserting some new columns, save your definitions and export all your qso data as an adif file. Then setup a new, empty database. Use your stored definitions as basetables. Afterwards you can modify your column setup. After creating the new qso table you can restore your qso data be importig the saved adif file. Don’t forget to save the views, too.
If you have created views - for instance to calculate some statistics - you can save your views to a file, for later use.
