 +
 +The AMV1 ASCII converter tool is provided to allow you to easily convert from text based logbook formats into [[software:radio:amv1|AMV1]] DB format. You can use the tool to import multiple log entries into AMV1 with little effort.
 +
 +For example, you may have an exported copy of your logbook in CSV (comma separated) format, with fields in a random order. This tool allows you to select the separator in use, and select the custom order of fields for that format. It can handle date/times in different formats as well as fields enclosed in quotes.
 +
 +Finally, you can save your conversion settings for easy use at a later date.
 +
 +Included below are steps on how to download and install the application, and how to perform a conversion routine.
 +
 +===== Tool Usage =====
 +
 +The tool provides a simple wizard with steps to allow you to cover logbook files.
 +
 +  - Start the application, clicking next at the initial screen.
 +  - Select the source ASCII logbook file you wish to convert from (an example SWL.TXT file is included within the installation directory).
 +  - Select a target logbook output file.
 +  - Click next and select in the text field the character that represents the field separator, clicking the appropriate button.
 +  - After clicking next you can now select the field order by moving available fields from the left hand list to the right.
 +  - On the next screen select the date/time format and separator.
 +  - The next screen allows you to sample convert one field.
 +  - On the final screen you have the option to save this conversion details, and to convert all the selected data.
 +  - Once complete, run [[software:radio:amv1|AMV1]], select File, Import Database, select ASCII format, choose your output file from the previous step and hit import.
 +
 +Note the application comes with sample conversion routines (see File, Open Conversion Routines) within SWL.CWZ corresponding to the sample log input SWL.TXT.
 +
 +===== Downloading & Installation =====
 +
 +Download the tool using this [[http://www.slyware.com/downloads/products/ascconv.zip|link]], and extract to a temporary directory. You can then run the ''SETUP.EXE'' installation tool and follow the wizard.
 +
 +Refer to the ''README.TXT'' file within the release archive for further details.
