I have an old computer with lots of 2002, 3 and 4 software on it. I have thirty years of ham contacts logged in a data base that I worked up using Microsoft Works 2004. I now have a new computer with all 2010 and 2011 software on it and running XP.
I have tried to export/import my Works database to Excel and other software with no luck. Can you suggest a ham logging program that will allow me to merge my Works data base into it on the new computer? I posted this on October 13 on eHam.com but have had no luck with help.
Sure wish someone could help me. Performance tells me this computer is about to crash and would love to get my DB on the new computer.
My works data base is set up as follows:
Many thanks for your help. The old computer is having major problems and I am afraid I will lose thirty years of contacts. I did download them to an external drive but have been unable to merge them into anything on the new computer.
