You could also use the report designer to calculate Time Out in a log report, using the Time In and Dive Time.

I could have swore you said it would be done but all I can find are statements about certain features you intend for the next *major* release, which I guess would version 5. I'm kinda surprised that it sounds pretty far down the priority list. I've seen at least three threads where people want path ...

I couldn't see anything different in the new release concerning search paths, i.e. for photos. I thought you said you were planning on working that in. Did you not get to it or am I missing it?

Am I the only one on pins and needles, checking the forum each day hoping to find something under the virtual tree?

How about adding a numeric field for depth at top of wreck to complement the existing max depth field?

I don't know about named drives but I know several of us have requested relative paths and search paths for filenames, and that Sven has said this will be implemented in the next major version release.

It's OK, Sven. Opened up the file in MS Access and made a backup and now everything works like a charm. :) Thank you. And THAT, folks, is a classic example of why it is so important that DL stick with a simple database engine like Access that allows you independent access to your data rather than s...

Not just no but hell no

I abandoned Scubase, a very fine program, because it went to MSSQL and rendered all my custom macros useless. MSSQL is blatant overkill for a personal dive log, chews up system resources, makes it harder to debug problems, makes it harder (not impossible) to work with programatically, and is not as ...

I like to just use File Explorer to copy the database file to a backups directory where I put various documents from all kinds of apps. It's a few extra manual steps but in the long run I've found it easier than trying to remember the backup procedures for a bunch of different apps. About once a mon...

Since Diving Log already exports to Excel, all you would need to do is read the Excel file for updates.

Yes it is, DeepEyes. Before I bought it, I grilled Sven on making sure he would stick with the Access database because as long as you can manipulate your data directly you can work around any problem or limitation. You also won't find many programs where the author will offer to personally help with...

Wishlist - URLs in Comments

Would like for the Comments text to support hyperlinks so I could add references to dive shops, charters, detailed trip reports, photo pages, etc.

Import problem - duplicate index

OK, I'm stumped. How am I supposed to add dives to the logbook? After converting my old logbook into DL, I did some diving this weekend and wanted to add the dives. I transfered the dives from dive computer to Suunto DM 1.5, then exported as CSV. Tried to import into logbook and it immediately abort...

Trips table

Any plans to add a table for Trips that we could link dives to, like Scubase? I like to log info about the general trip and usually do it in the first dive of the trip but it can be lengthy and clutters up that dive.
