Hello Don, as far as I'm aware it's only the .ADI file that's important, so there's probably no need at all to make any changes to the .LOG file after you've made corrections to the .ADI file.

I think I recall someone (probably the late and much-missed G4WJS) stating that the .LOG file, which seems to be in CSV format, is only a transaction record of what WSJT-X has logged whereas the .ADI file is the log itself that can be uploaded to LoTW etc and is used to identify previously-worked stations. I've certainly never, ever made any changes to my .LOG file whereas I fairly often edit the .ADI file, for example to add or correct grid squares.

Hope that helps,
