Greetings.... I have the SAME problem.....Got over 17,000 regs... Including places I most likely wont go to again...Like Las Vegas!!!! KLAS

Also go to LEPA (PMI) quite a lot.... So many holiday aircraft there... same problem... All I get from JET-2-LOG is a reply saying "No connection to external database" So am assuming SPOT-2-LOG is NO LONGER....

Any advise gratefully received... Cheers JOHN (JC47004)

I've just found a way to transfer the data...But it's a very slow process... I exported search from JET-2-LOG to XLS (Excel) theninserted an extra column - adding a "comma" Then copy & past (with commas) to Planelogger...

About all I can come up with at mo.... Gonna be doing this for the next year!!! LOL

Spot2Log seems to have disappeared.

Send your exports to webmaster@taxiwayalpha.com and I will import them for you. Please note this is a manual process, so may take a bit of time.

REF (CAX) post This is what I am doing....Like you say!! It's a very slow process.... I have found that your server will only deal with around 50 at a time!! Seeing I have over 17,000 It will take some time.... Done about 8,500 so far...and still going......

Just as a matter of interest.....SPOTTING LOG Have a facility to IMPORT CSV.... I'm on a free trial...at the moment. It took SECONDS to export my CSV files to them...(ALL 17k)

But, at the end of the day...I have decided that PLANELOGGER is a much better piece of software....

The SPOT-2-LOG system was much easier, as your log is held on your PC directly to Document file..... That way it takes seconds to check if you have previously seen an aircraft....

Hope, my imput helps..... to you and others that have come over to you fromn Spot2Log....

I will email a copy of my CSV. But not sure if this would duplicate the 8k odd that I have already inputted...... Thanks... Cheers JOHN
