  1. Thank you, Steven- This certainly looks like what I have, but I still can't find it in the CB db so I can enter it into my collection. When I type "Action Comics #1 (5th printing) " into title bar, it shows no results. What is the info I need to enter to find this in CB? I don't use Atomic Avenue for anything, so don't know how to 'copy it' from there to my collection. Thanks for your help. ~Pat
  2. Hi there. I am almost finished entering my collection (!) but, ironically, cannot find this one anywhere in CBdb: I have a mint copy of a REPRINT of Action Comics#1 from June, 1938 (would that I had the original- hahahahaaa!) This one was published in 1988, cover price 50 cents. It has a barcode, but it won't scan from my phone. Checked indicia, Can;t find it anywhere, can anyone tell me where to find this in db? Thanks all, ~Pat
  3. thank you Gregory and Mark, but last question, just to be sure, my cover says June and CBdb says July, so I can enter and correct both data elements, but to be sure this is the right thing to do? And to let you all know about this 'error'. Thanks.
  4. Hello- I have a near-mint issue of Mighty Marvel Western (featuring Rawhide Kid Matt Slade Two-Gun Kid. Issue number 32/June My cover has a price of 25 cents. The CB database shows Issue 32 as 20 cents/July 1974. Please advise , what is the correct info/where can I find this? Have checked indicia info and searched as many ways as I could, but no success. Thanks for your help. Best regards, Pat
  5. HI, Letting you know that my copy of Richie Rich Diamonds, #29 (.40) has a cover date of April, but CB database says March. I entered it using my cover date, but wanted you to know about the error. Thanks and happy holidays! --Pat
  6. Hello, Last one for now, letting you know the following. I used cover date, but thought a correction should be submitted. 1) Superman's pal Jimmy Olsen, # 163, cover says MAR, CB says 2/1/74 Thanks much, Pat
  7. Great, thanks for the info and your help. Processing along here, with only several hundred left to go! Best, Pat
  8. Hello, can someone please advise correct dates to use, and answer questions below that re : barcode box containing non barcode content ? 1) Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen, # 162- cover says Jan, CD says 12/1/73, Indicia says DEC-JAN 1973 2) Superman's Girlfriend Lois Lane # 136- cover says Feb, CB says Jan, Indicia says JAN- FEB 1974 3) QUESTION: I have a near mint copy of The New Mutants #58, DEC. My copy has a rectangular box which contains the barcode, but the cover pictured in CB has text in the box instead, it says " The Fall of the Mutants Is Coming". Does this matter, is it considered some kind of variant? Please advise. 4) SAme question for: Alpha Flight Annual #2, 1987 cover price $1.25 my copy has the 'The Fall of the Mutants is Coming!' in the barcode box, not the barcode. Thank you, please also submit corrections as needed to CB. Appreciate your help, Pat
  9. thanks again, Steven. Your support is very helpful. The additional info is great, since I do have several in this series, so will double check all. Best, P
  10. Hello again, Just want to be sure my db is accurate: My Near Mint issue of Wonder Woman # 222 has a cover date of March , inidica says Feb-March 1976. CB has it listed as FEB. Can you please confirm that it should be entered as March? Thanks, sorry if this is picayune, just want to be sure I'm entering all correctly. Thank you, Pat
  11. thank you, Steven. I appear to have another as well. Do you prefer if I start a new thread each time, or add to this existing one? I appreciate your prompt assistance, makes the entry much smoother. Best, Pat
  12. Hello, I am trying to enter the following Near Mint issue into my Cbase collection, have found another one where cover price does not match what is in the CB db: Marvel Two-in-One, featuring the Thing. Issue # 96. My comic has cover price of .60, however CB db shows cover price of .75 Even the scan from my phone clearly shows the cover with correct price, but the Cost field shows .75 The Storyline is 'Visiting Hours' Please advise, thank you.
  13. Thank you for your reply, Steven. I will correct the price for my entry in my collection, and yes, would appreciate it if you could submit the correction . Best regards, Pat
  14. Hello, I am trying to enter the following Fine issue into my Cbase collection: Superboy starring The Legion of Super-heroes, #206, February as per cover (indicia says Jan-Feb, 1975) However, no matter how I search for it, I keep getting this issue number with a price of .20, however the cover clearly says .25. The Storyline is the same: The Legionnaires Who Haunted Superboy. I'll try to attach photo so you can see what I mean. Please advise, thank you.
  15. Hello again Steven, I do not get what you have above when I click Ctrl-F, I only get a single field which allows me to enter Issue number, so evidently 'Advanced Find' is also not available in the Pro version. I also do not see 'Advanced Find' in any of my tab options. Having a problem getting a picture from my phone to laptop to share with you, so just going to describe a problem with 2 specific issues right now: 1) Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars, #11 -I can find this at Marvel, but not in CB. This is #11, MAR, in a limited series of twelve issues according to the cover. Cover price .75 and looks like it was published in 1984. 2) #12 APR in the same series, all info as above except cover price on this one is $1.00. I have tried to find these using every available parameter, no result. Can you please help or tell me how to enter a comic that CB indeed does not have in their db? Thank you, Pat
  16. Hello Steven, Thank you for your reply. I have the Pro edition, am new at this so not ready to go for the Advanced yet. From other replies I've received, it appears that I cannot search on multiple criteria at the same time. Too bad the AA doesn't allow entering from their 'window', that'd be great. -- I found it quite helpful today to enter via my laptop and use the 'other' Find option, using issue number- since results appear alphabetically, I can at least narrow down the time it takes to the letter grouping (i.e., looking for an Avengers issue is pretty quick once I get going, but it's really slow once searching for some mid-alphabet name) Will see if I can scan in a cover scan for some that are stubborn tomorrow. I'd hoped the scanner using iPhone would be pretty quick, but so far it's not. The most productive right now is the Find/Other with issue number, but even with a successful search, it still takes quite a bit of time to find and then enter. Thanks again for your help, am plugging away with many, many more to get into the system. Q- Do you happen to know if a better (i.e., not iPHone) scanner would be more efficient? Best regards, Pat
  17. Hello G.Hecht, and thanks very much for your reply. I understood where to find the indicia after your previous message, but the illustrations above are helpful to understand the rest of the page. Unfortunately, I am still not able to enter some of my comics in CBase, though I AM able to find them in Atomic Avenue. I'm guessing this is not possible, but sure would be great if I could enter a book by clicking on the item in Atomic Avenue-- any chance of this working? I do understand that a search which would allow 2 parameters (i.e., Character and issue#) could still return many, many 'hits', but then of course I'd like to see the ability to search on multiple parameters, more than 2-- : Character, issue#, Month , cover price, etc. I'm too new at this to start seriously suggesting new features for future releases, but an example of my struggles may be helpful to your programming staff. Not thrilled about having to take each book out of the plastic sleeve, would like to minimize handling, so will follow your steps as suggested in the meantime. Thank you, Pat
  18. Hello to G Hecht and thank you re Issue with Item Lookup. I have seen the autocharacter reduction as I type what I'm looking for, and tried to find the Spider-Man both using 'The' at the beginning of the title and without, was not able to find what I was looking for either way. I did also find the additional 'filters' list in the CBase on my computer (for adding new Comics) , so was able to add a couple of issues I was struggling with, but even with this tool, I am not finding what I'm looking for. Quite frustrating, actually, and I have hundreds of issues to enter for my collection. Thank you very much for your prompt reply, and the information about the indicia- I did look at both front and back pages for issue # 119, for Marvel Comics Group, Fantastic Four, but did not see the 'title' information on the front or back page. Q-- (Not to mention hating to open the plastic sleeve protecting the comic, does the integrity of the plastic sleeve have any affect on value?) Tried searching on Storyline: Three Stand Together.. Or Die! and that didn't help either. Q- Wish there was a way to search by both Primary character AND item number, this might really reduce search time. Is this possible? I have also read the articles you referred me to, thank you. --Another Q please: I CAN find some issues on 'Atomic Avenue', but doesn't seem to be a way to just click on that and then add to CBase-- is this possible? Sorry for all the newbie q's, but having decided it's time to get this enormous project going, it's a little tough to keep bumping into walls or no results. I appreciate your help, have a great weekend. ~ Pat
  19. Hello, I am having some difficulty trying to enter my comics which are older and do not have a barcode. Am using 'item lookup' on my mobile app (vi IpHONE), but maybe I'm not entering title correctly? What is the proper naming convention to use when searching for items without a barcode? All I can see is to use either title (proper naming convention?) or item number. Is there any other way to search? For example, I cannot find : The Amazing Spider-Man, #96 from May. The same problem for : Starring the Fantastic Four, #51 and #59. Thanks for any help. I have viewed the 'Entering your collection' video, but no answers there. ~Pat
  20. Thanks also to G.Hecht. No, I hadn't added the mobile app, will do so now. Best, ~P
  21. Thank you, Mark, will try this with fingers crossed. I appreciate your prompt response ~ P
  22. Hello- I just bought Comicbase Professional today, so sorry if this is a dumb question. I thought the website said I could enter new comic books via barcode photo from my iPhone. I cannot see anyway to do this, can someone tell me if this is true, or must I also purchase a bar code scanner? Thanks for any help. ~ Pat
