Announcing APDL Export
Posted by Neal Culiner on 15 September 2016 08:21 PM

NC Software is excited to announce the new APDL Export feature on  This new feature allows APDL users to export their APDL flights to import into any logbook product such as Logbook Pro using Logbook Pro's Import Wizard.  The APDL Export system is powerful allowing the APDL user to filter by date ranges, specify if By Leg (recommended) or By Day data collation, include deadheads, and if using By Leg you can also create a template for a custom remarks column.  The system is easy to use and will export to either TAB delimited text files or Comma Separated Value (CSV).  A default Logbook Pro Import Wizard "template" (.map file) is available for download which you can further customize per your needs and save for reuse.

To learn how to use the Logbook Pro Import Wizard click here.  

Backup your Logbook Pro data prior to importing by clicking File...Backup to File/Cloud.  It is also suggested to export small date ranges not greater than a year as large date ranges will be slower to export as well as import.

If you have any questions on the use of the APDL Exporter please create a new thread on this forum for assistance or contact support via the NC Software Help Desk.
