You will need ESdat Desktop version 5.1.32 or higher.
The layout of each log is controlled in files with a "ESlog" extension. Some examples are included in the "Templates" subdirectory of where ESdat is installed.
The logo is a file called "ESlog_logo.png" in your Templates directory. It is applied to all logos for your logs. Alternatively a logo specific to a layout can be used by giving the png file the same name as the layout (ie eslog) file.
The Graphic Code used for exporting Lithology or Backfill symbols is specified in the ESdat "zRef_Geology_Lithological_Codes" and "zRef_Backfill_Codes" tables, in the "ESlog_Graphic" column. The available Graphic Codes can be obtained by clicking on a graphic in ESlog, to bring up the "Select Graphic Pattern" selector.
If opened the "ESlog" layout file in a text editor it has placeholders called "DataSource" and "HeaderInfo", which reference data exported from ESdat by a GEDT file called "ESdat_Logs.gedta" (Access version of ESdat) or "ESdat_Logs.gedts" (SQL Server version). These GEDT files are included in the the "Templates" subdirectory of where ESdat is installed.
The standard "gedt" file that is shipped with ESdat should cover most data export requirements, however it can be edited (copy out of the install directory to your Templates directory) or a custom one can be used for each log. A custom one will have the same name as the matching "ESlog" file, but with a "gedts" or "gedta" extension.
No, water strikes can be included in any text or graphic column, either combined with other data or by itself.
Yes, simply click on the Logo or the Heading to be changed and enter new values.
You can make any changes you like by clicking on a column and editing the "Layout" tab. No support is available to assist, unless you wish to engage EScIS to provide a layout for you.
You can click Data - Save and save the data to your own systems, and re-upload it using Data - Open. Online saving of the data is unlikely to be available for the free version.
