  1. Duplicate Titles to be deleted - same as (Aus. Edition)

    Batman (Federal)

    Batman (Murray)

    Kobra (Federal)

    Superman (Murray)

     

    Issues that don't exist/duplicated  and should be deleted

    Avengers (Aus. Edition) 1 (same as Avengers (Federal)) 1

    Batman and the Outsiders (Aus. Edition) 1,2,3,4,5,6

     

  2. After many hours cleaning up all the errors in Publishers for my database - something has changed them all back.

    For example Federal should be Federal Publishing.

    I assume an update came through and reverted it back to what it was before. Very frustrating!!!!

    Is there a way to stop this from happening? Title Lock perhaps.

  3. Is there a way to update the value (not selling) column for a particular issue either by import or other means?

    Australia, Canada & the UK all have price variants for both Marvel & DC from the 60s-90's at cover price. Not to mention 2000AD, Star Wars Weekly etc.

    Approx 150,000 comics which will never show up on Heritage or Atomic Avenue which means decent sized overseas collections undervalued by at least $10,000 or more.

    Any help would be appreciated

  4. There's enough new issues and pictures now in Comic Base

    It might be nice for the next release to fix all the obvious/glaring mistakes in the data such as writer =. ,Artist is 56, barcodes in the wrong field, Wrong cover dates (when you add issues it calculates the date by adding a month), mis-spelling of names (big no no), missing cover prices when we have a picture etc. 

    It's probably a days work for the obvious ones (I'd even volunteer) and would make the database so much more easier and save time.

    Just a thought

  5. Thanks Steven 

    I already did this and it still brings up the same search list. Its like it remembers there used to be something, tries to find it and doesn't succeed. I tried closing and re-opening and it didn't refresh the list. Has anybody else tried to clean the drop down list so that only legitament writers or Artists show up?

  6. Hi 

    I've noticed that there is wrong data at times in the cover date, Artist & Writer.

    When I delete the wrong data, it still tries to search for the data because the search list still includes it.

    eg do a item search for artist and the first option is .

    The artist list is massive so how do I refresh the list so that it doesn't show these errors and not find them either.

    Do I need to submit each mistake, wait for it to be accepted and hope the search list no longer includes it

    Hope that makes sense. Any help would be appreciated.

     

     

  7. How is the publisher assigned to a new title if there is multiple? Is it the first one?

    For example Phantom is in the database as Charlton but started as Gold Key but then became King then Charlton.

    A search for Gold Key wouldn't bring up this title even though it is a classic Gold Key Silver Age title.

    Overstreet would also be another example.

  8. Hi everybody

    I've noticed the pictures in CB vary in size from issue to issue, Im assuming depending on how they were submitted.

    It makes a difference when you click on the issue because you can barely see the smaller images.

     

    Is that normal - is there a difference in size for downloads compared to the CD?

    Is there a way to get larger pictures as I've noticed my scanner seems to create them bigger than most of the CB database?

    Any suggestions

  9. Great idea Peter I would be for your suggestion 100%.

    Thanks Steven for the support as well - I think Mature is OK removing the Adult category should eliminate 90% of the problem titles.

    Thanks for the great suggestions guys - much appreciated

  10. Is there a quick way to delete all the adult/porn/sex titles off my database and stop them from coming back.

    The problem is getting worse especially with magazines like Playboy which has no place on a ""Comic Book"database.

    Love the database - hate apologising to my wife

    ************** JIT Debugging **************
    To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
    application or computer (machine.config) must have the
    jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
    The application must also be compiled with debugging
    enabled.

    For example:

    <configuration>
        <system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
    </configuration>

    When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
    will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
    rather than be handled by this dialog box.
