  1. This may be related. For the past three weeks, the covers downloaded had 'problems'. This has been fixed but you may still have these bad cover on your disk. One easy (but very slow) way to get rid of them is to use File Tools->Rebuild Lists and use 'Picture Files List (slow)' (and it is very slow for my Archive pictures took several hours to finish (4-6? I didn't time it but it was a very long time.) Alternately, you can look at the last 3 log files and use the Pictures downloaded paths to find all the pictures (but this is both slow and manual).
  2. Unfortunately, it looks like the updated deleted the Spiral entry and left the TPB entry. This is backwards as the Spiral should have been left and the TPB deleted.

  4. I can't tell from your description but Rebuild lists works on the entire database and not just one Type. Looking at the ComicBase web site, in the ComicBase Info box (top right), it lists: Titles: 963,923 Comics: 963,344 Publishers: 7,462. Clicking on the Titles number, it brings up a list of all Titles for all types (Books, Comic Books, Magazines). Because Titles lists everything, 963,344 should be the total number of Items in CB for all Types (from the last time it was generated).
  5. I added a Variation that started with 'S' It was located between Variation Z and Var27 (the same as yours) After that All the Var 27 - 150 are listed in sort order.
  6. Ah, thank you for clarifying that. Look at this Post as it looks like a similar issue to yours. If that doesn't help you may need to contact support. CB is finding those Items somewhere.
  7. What I see in the Variation Set-up window is: 3-D Edition through Westfield Comics Edition Variation A through Variation Z Var27 through Var28 (I think these were added first and the name doesn't match the other Variations) Variation 29 through Variation 150 (in correct sort order) When Editing an Item, the Variation drop-down box is identical to what I have in the variation set-up window. As for Custom Variation, I don't use. The main reason is they are not in the master database so when an Update is run, none of them will be updated (since they would be unrecogn
  8. I tried searching for Mutant Empire on the Internet and all I can find are 3 text novels and 1 book that collects them. I checked MyComicShop and GCD and can't find any comic listing (MyComicShop has the text novels listed). Is what you have an actual comic or a text story? Did the same for Giant-Size X-Men Tribute. Only finding the one with Wein and Cockrum item (both single issues with variations and a book) at MyComicShop and GCD. Can you supply scans or links to the issues? It is possible you have something that isn't in CB (or MyComicShop or GCD) but if so, I am not find
  9. I think there is something wrong/different about how your computer is sorting. The may be a Windows setting problem When I check the Variation drop-down box, all the variations are sorted correctly. And in the Grid display they are also sorted correctly. So it isn't CB directly causing the problem. You may need to contact support and see if they can help with your problem.
  10. If you have #8, what does the indicia have for the Title. This is a better guide for the title then what is on the cover (as sometimes they are not the same).
  11. By the way, if you use the Find box (top middle of the window) and change it to Publisher, you can start typing a Publisher name and see what shows up. Since the part left off of the Publisher is on the end, this should find any you are looking for that are already in the database. Don't trust the Setup->Publisher listing as not all Publishers are in there (not sure why). For example, I checked there for Dream Weaver and didn't see it. But the Find DID find the Titles that are using it.
  12. First, I would be careful about adding Publishers. For example, 'Dream Weaver Press' would just be 'Dream Weaver' CB usually leaves of common endings for a Publisher. These include (but are not limited to) Press, Meida, Publishing, ext. Sometimes they are added if there are Publishers with similar names. If you do enter an 'incorrect' (from HC's perspective), and they catch it, they well change it. What this means is the next Update will add a New Title in your database with the 'correct' publisher which will be a duplicate of the one you entered. This should show up on the Unmatched I
  13. Here are instructions from another post here: https://forums.comicbase.com/index.php?/topic/966-installation-error-from-crystal-reports/&tab=comments#comment-3357 The only difference is these instructions have you uninstalling CB, running the Crystal Report fix, and then reinstalling CB. PS When uninstalling CB, there is also ComicBase xxxx Resources. I don't know if you need to uninstall that or not, but I would go ahead and Uninstall it at the same time. It will be put back when you reinstall CB.
  14. That is strange. I wonder if anyone else is having that problem. Mine displays correctly. See Attachments.
  15. When you type the Title name in the find box at the top, it should display Titles for all three types. However, the different types will be after the current type. For example If you are in Comics and start typing 'Amazing H', the Magazine 'Amazing Heroes Swimsuit Special' should be in the list but AFTER all the Comic Book listings (and Books should show up at the bottom, too).
