Hi:
I have been using Mac-Dive for a few years now and love it.
I used to have my dive log in Filemaker pro format but exported it into CSV format for archiving long term.
Fast forward to now, would it possible to get the 1000 dives or so I have in the CSV file into Mac Dive. I tried exporting the CSV into many diff formats but mac-dive did not import.

I am open to suggestions.

Thank you

Your best bet is to convert it to MacDive's XML format, or UDDF, or something like that.

Thank you for your reply.
I did export the excel file to .xml format but when trying to import, no new dives were imported.

I know that this may not be possible.

Thank you.

MacDive won't just read arbitrary XML files. They need to be in a specific format, as I mentioned - like MacDive's own XML format or UDDF.

Thanks for the reply (Nick?); can you convert my excel file to your format?
I can dropbox or email.
Thank you
