It should not be possible to import duplicates into Log4OM because incoming QSO's that exactly match Call Sign, Mode, Band, Date and time with existing QSO's are not imported.

Email me the ADIF files that you are trying to import and a backup ADIF of your Log4OM logbook so that I can check

Email to g4pop (AT) arrl.net

Kes,

I have checked the ADIF files that you emailed me and my comments in reply were as follows:

You are getting apparent duplicates because the duplicate QSO details differ as detailed below.

Example in the QSO with RL3BZ your MixW ADIF entry does not contain a band and the frequency is slightly different

Log4OM Band = 20m - MixW band = no data (This will cause it not to be recognised as a duplicate)

Log4OM freq = 14.136.02 MixW Freq = 14.136.00 (This would also cause it not be a recognised duplicate)

Log4OM is not yet integrated with MixW and if there are no MixW updates in the near future we will not do so because we only integrate with software that is constantly being developed.
