  1. Just an FYI, I already downloaded the latest version (.3829) from my registration page to load on the new computer. I did go ahead and optimize my database. I go to Report>(choose any report)>(choose Print or Preview)>Error message
  2. I need a little help here. Purchased a mini computer (it's so tiny!) to replace my old laptop. I paid attention about speed so I now have 16MB Ram with the M.2 SSD. I have transferred my pictures to another SSD drive that I added. I am running Win10. Everything is lightning fast. Having one issue though. When I try to print a report I get the following error: I am apparently missing some files? What do I need to download to fix this issue? Thank you, Kaleb
  3. I figured out how to make a wanted list the following way: Report > Item Checklists Titles to Print > Titles I own Report Items > Items in my collection List only wanted items This will generate a report of all your Wanted books (those books you have check marked), including titles you have and those you don't have. If you already have an issue it will let you know what you already have or, in my case, show what books you forgot to uncheck after purchase. Hope that helps.
  4. With ComicBase 2017, I could print out (really just generate a PDF) a list of all my books by publisher: Marvel, DC, and Harvey. I also generated a list of everything I had in the collection. I would carry these lists on my iPad to go to shows for reference. When you were on the print screen, you could print "Selected Titles" and choose your search parameters (>Publisher>DC). My list would be generated with all the DC books I had in my collection. Using ComicBase 2020, I have no idea how to print out anything by Publisher. You can choose "Selected Titles," but there is
  5. Walt Disney’s Mickey Mouse and Blotman in Blotman Returns https://atomicavenue.com/atomic/TitleDetail.aspx?TitleID=25128 and Mickey Mouse and Blotman https://atomicavenue.com/atomic/TitleDetail.aspx?TitleID=25196&M=1 are both the same book. The indicia actually says "Walt Disney’s Mickey Mouse and Blotman in Blotman Returns", which is the correct title. The "Mickey and Blotman" title should be removed as it is a duplicate.
  6. The first issue of Astronauts in Trouble: Space 1959 shows a variant issue in the database. The #1A variant is actually the back cover of issue #1. https://atomicavenue.com/atomic/item/241041/1/Astronauts-in-Trouble-Space-1959-1 https://atomicavenue.com/atomic/item/312344/1/Astronauts-in-Trouble-Space-1959-1-Variation-A The #1A issue should be deleted. All three issues have an additional cover on the back.
  7. I dug out the header card. It just says "Mystery Comics" and under that it says "Collect all 9 thrilling comics." No other useful information on the card. It does have the original price so they originally cost 25 cents.
  8. I have a set of the so called "Dan Curtis Giveaway" comics. The title is listed this way in the Overstreet Price Guide and in the Grand Comics Database: https://www.comics.org/series/17607/ for the first issue It is a series of 6" x 3" reprint books published in 1974 by Western Publishing. They are numbered 1 through 9. The reason for the "Dan Curtis" was because the first book has a Copyright of Dan Curtis Productions, Inc. Dan Curtis was the director, writer, and producer for Dark Shadows. He was not a comic book publisher. All of the other books in the series were
  9. The title Monster Mash-Ups! should actually be Monster Smash-Ups! I have uploaded the cover to the issue. (Well I hope it uploaded...) Kaleb
  10. When I use "Add by Barcode" and I don't have books with barcodes, I use "Lookup" to locate the title. I can then select the issue I would like to add. This works well if I only have one issue of that title that I need to enter into my database. If I have more than one issue of a certain title, I have to search the Title a second time, add the next issue, and then repeat the Title search as needed for additional issues. I'm doing a Title search ten times for the same title just to enter ten issues. Is there some way we can select more than one issue using the CTRL key while selecti
  11. It's working now. Yay! Mark - I tried the CTRL key but it did nothing. The program still locked up while loading and crashed. Brian - I had a backup zip file from 3 days ago, so I just tried to open that file. (There wasn't anything newer...so I think that was not a good sign.) ComicBase 2020 opened that file and asked if I wanted to convert it. I said no and opened it as Read Only. I was missing about 200 books, so that file wasn't going to do me any good. I closed the program. I ran ComicBase 2020 again and everything seems to be working now. I put in 200 boo
  12. I shutdown my laptop. I rebooted and ComicBase 2020 no longer runs. This is as far as it loads and then it just shuts down. I uninstalled the program and reinstalled it. Same issue. I'm running Windows 10. Any help would be appreciated. Kaleb
  13. That is exactly what I am missing! My cover picture does NOT display like that. It shows the "opened window" named "ttimer" in the taskbar, when I hover over the ComicBase 2020 logo, but I cannot see the enlarged cover window. I tried to cascade my windows (shift-right click on ComicBase 2020 icon in taskbar) but there was not another window to be hidden behind the ComicBase program window.
