  2. Just to try to determine where the problem may be, you could try to create a new database (don't have to copy anything into it), and try to run the Update on it. If it completes in a normal amount of time, there is probably something wrong with your database. If it takes just as long as the original database, there is probably something wrong with your computer. (by 'wrong' I mean there could be some setting (like anti-virus) causing problems.) Also, while it is updating, can you tell by the text displayed in the update window if it is just going slow or is there a specific place that it is slowing down on?

  5. Since you have a new laptop, I am assuming you have an old computer (desk or laptop). Is your database on the old computer? Installing CB on a new computer won't automatically copy your database to the new computer. By default, your database is on your C Drive in \Users\<loginid>\Documents\Human Computing\ComicBase Databases. If you can network the two computers together, you can transfer the database from the old computer to the new computer. or If you have a large enough USB drive, you can copy to it from your old computer then use it to copy it to your new computer. or It is possible to have your database and a NAS device. If you have that you need to point CB to that location.
  6. Since I am not sure exactly what you have done, try this: Go to Windows Settings, Apps, Installed Apps Uninstall any/all Comicbase apps. (there should only be two: the Edition you have and the Resources install). Go to Users\<logon-id>\AppData\Roaming\Human Computing\ComicBase 2024 Professional Edition 24.1.0.1212 folder Then either install your 2024 downloaded installer or download it from the Comicbase site in your My Account->Registrations page. Hopefully this will work. If not you may need to call support.

  8. The indicia for all 3 issues has 'Skull and Bones' only in the indicia (also 'and' instead of '&'). I am using an on-line source so they may or may not be digital versions. It would be best if Pete could double check and if it is just 'Skull and Bones', it is probably the same for all 3 issues.

  11. I have the same problem. Once this process 'breaks' (stops working (not sure why)) it never starts working again. After Content updates,it only shows the date of that update. There is no history.

  13. Here is what I am seeing (in reports generated in CB). If the first issue in the list for a title has a cover it is displayed. If the first issue in the list for a title does not have a cover it is not displayed. Examples (see attached): My Collection Overview report showing the first title with a cover (issue MMPB and the second title without a cover (issue TPB). (1st attachment) First Title in report showing issues MMPB and MMPB-11 where the first issue (MMPB)) is displayed for owned issues MMPB. (2nd attachment) Second Title in report showing issues HC and TPB where the first issue (HC) doesn't have a cover so owned issue TPB does NOT display a cover. (2nd attachment) I have spot-checked several titles where covers are displayed in the report (always has a cover for the first issue of the title) and covers are not displayed always does NOT have a cover for the first issue in the title). Additionally, If the first issues does have an issue but it is not owned, that first cover is displayed for a latter issues what is not the one for that latter issue. (see 4th attachment). The issue with the RED arrow (which is the first issue in that title) is the one used in the Report but the actual issue in the report is the one with the GREEN arrow).

Not sure what the final name will be. It could be 'Capitaine America' (title on cover and maybe in the indicia (this is a French language version). or ''Captain America (Editions Heritage)' (but the name might change since it uses the English 'Captain' instead of the French 'Capitain').

  16. While this is being evaluated, There is a possible work-around for up to 3 sets of titles. The idea is to use the Custom Check boxes at the Title level to allow finding all the titles of a set (you define). Only having 3 Title level Custom Check boxes will limit the usefulness of this method. To do this: A) Go to each Title you want in a list and check a Custom Check Box (make sure to Check the same Box (1, 2, or 3) to ensure all the titles are in the same 'list'. This can be done a couple of ways with the easist being using the Title window (CTRL+T), Type in the title name (partial name is fine), then with the title hi-lighted, click on the Modify button. Repeat for each title. NOTE: You can use Setup->Custom Fields to rename the Custom Field to a name like 'Spider-Man' to help keep the (up-to) 3 lists separate. B) Run a Find for Title Fields Custom Check 1 (or whichever one you used or renamed). C) Select all the rows (CTRL+A). D) Right-click to bring up the pop-up menu and select Report Selected Titles As-> <type of report> At this point the report selected window should be displayed with all the Titles in the list selected. You can select the Report options you need from this point. This is not as good as having a larger (or unlimited) set of lists as you are suggestion but is should work for what you want.
  17. The row colors mean: Red: Price has increased (hot) Black/White: Price has not changed Blue: Price has decreased (cold) This is the 'Classic' display. You can use menu item Setup->Preferences to change to Finacial which has 5 different colors (large increase, small increase, no change, small decrease, large decrease). PS This has nothing to do with Dark Mode. The colors will be displayed in any mode.
  18. From the scans on eBay, it appears to be a collection of his captioned cartoons from various magazines and newspapers. So, Yes, it should have the Type changed to 'Comic Books'. PS Not sure why '(Gahan Wilson)' was added to the Title name. There isn't another title with that name, it isn't the publisher, and not it is not a possessive.
  19. Not sure if this is the problem or not but... I can find two Dinotopia titles in CB: Dinotopia: A Land Apart From Time Dinotopia: The World Beneath The 'Land Apart' title only has a partial UPC of '9781878685230'. The Full UPC should be '978187868523052995' If this was the one you scanned the Barcode into the Find box, it wouldn't match the partial UPC. The other one has the full UPC, however.
  20. Using Advanced Find, you can paste one of the following in the WHERE box. NOTE: The Date is in 'yyyy-mm-dd' format. Change it to the day you are looking for. To find any issues Greater Than or Equal to a date with a Qty of 2 or more, you can try: I.[QtyInStock] >= 2 AND I.[LastQtyChangeDate] >= '2024-01-01' Or to find any issues BETWEEN two dates with a QTY of 2 or more, you can try: I.[QtyInStock] >= 2 AND I.[LastQtyChangeDate] BETWEEN '2024-01-01' AND '2024-03-23' Or to find any issues for an exact date with a QTY of 2 or more, you can try: I.[QtyInStock] >= 2 AND I.[LastQtyChangeDate] = '2024-01-23' Again, you will have to change the Dates for what you are looking for. PS There is a column of LastQtyChangeDate you can use Setup->Columns to Display to show it, if you like.
  21. Delete or Move 1.jpg and 1-2.jpg From: Pictures\P\Print Mint\Tales from the Tube To: Pictures\S\Surfer\Tales from the Tube Delete 1-V.jpg and 1-V58.jpg From: Pictures\B\Boom!\BRZRKR (Duplicates of 1-S.jpg and 1-6.jpg, respectively)
  22. A couple of things you can try: A) Press and HOLD the CTRL key when starting CB. You will get a window asking if you want to 'Recreate the database indexes?'. Click YES. If that doesn't work then... B) Use menu item 'File->File Tools' Rebuild Lists. You may only need 'Series Information' but it won't hurt to check all except the last one ('Picture Files List). This will Rebuild / repopulate the various indexes. ============== When you mention 'Duplicates' do you mean a single issue with Qty of greater than or equal to 2? Or two of the same issue number. For example, '1/A' and '1/A'? For a 'Duplicate' by Qty, you can run a Find on Item Field of Qty in Stock which is Greater Then or Equal to 2. or there is an Items Field 'Last Date of Qty Change' you can try using. If you have the Pro or Archive Edition, for the 'Duplicate' by issue number you can use this Advanced Find: I.Title || I.ItemNumber IN ( (SELECT A.Title || A.ItemNumber FROM ComicIssues A WHERE I.Title = A.Title and I.ItemNumber = A.ItemNumber GROUP BY A.Title, A.ItemNumber HAVING COUNT(*) > 1 ) ) NOTE: If you have Duplicates you created on purpose (i.e. 2 issues with different Conditions and or Prices), those will show up in the list of Duplicates, also. PS This will just find Duplicates for 'Comic Book' Types. For other types: Change 'From ComicIssues A' to 'From Books A' Change 'From ComicIssues A' to 'FROM Magazines A' Change 'From ComicIssues A' to 'FROM Newspapers A'
  23. Looks like it is in 'Shi: The Way of the Warrior' #4-2. https://atomicavenue.com/atomic/item/86012/1/Shi-The-Way-of-the-Warrior-42
  24. At a guess, I think CB is automatically downloading the one in the master database and replacing the one you modified. Use menu item Setup->Preferences and see if you have Automatically Download Larger Pictures checked. (see attaached) If you do, uncheck it, modify the cover and see if it stay that way.
