  1. Talked with Pete, he had me go to File/File Tools/Manage Pictures and Movies and reset and remove all of the cover photos.  I then downloaded all covers for Uncle Scrooge (IDW)  and they all downloaded fine.  I then attempted to download the newest update and all went perfectly, no issues loading the new covers.  Update ran and completed as usual.  Thanks Pete.

  2. Steven,

    I followed your steps...

    Run a Mass Change.
    Change: Cost
    To: Cover Price
    Apply to ALL Titles
    You will get a warning that this change can not be undone.
    Did I mention you should only do this to a Copy of your database?
    After the change (done on the copy, correct...?)
    Run a Collection Report.
    The last page will get you the Total Cost (which is identical to Cover Price at this point).

    After running the Collection Report, the Cost amount total was the exact same on my Copy database as the Cost amount total on my original database, exactly the same.  Weird, so I manually checked and sure enough, on my Copy database all of the Cost and Cover prices matched, so that was fine.  So I then ran Collection Statistics under File on my Copy database and there the Cost amount total changed and is now showing the actual Cover price total.  Perfect!

    Your steps worked perfectly and I obtained the information I was looking for.  Not sure why the Collection Report and the Collection Statistics are not identical though.  Thanks again.

  3. Thank you Steven for your detailed reply, much appreciated.  Unfortunately, I use the Marked box for much of my collection.  I think I'll create another database just for my CGC book collection and use your steps to achieve my desired report.  Thanks again.

  4. I am using 4 custom fields, custom field 1 is Box#, custom field boxes 2-4 are labeled 9.4, 9.6 and 9.8 and filled with the CGC FMV for each book listed.  Many different titles are in my "CGC" box.  So I'm just trying to print out a report with the following:  Title, Item #, Qty, Cover, Cost, and my custom fields, Box#, 9.4, 9.6 and 9.8.

    I select find, item field, Box, and box is CGC, select find and up comes my CGC box.  I highlight everything and select quick report, but only Title, #, Cd, Qty, Price and Notes show up in the quick report.

    I'm not sure how to proceed.  Windows 10 Pro using ComicBase 2022 Archive Edition, v22.0.1.1613

    Thanks for any help.

  5. Thanks for your detailed information.  I reached out to Pete and he informed me that he uses the Dymo LabelWriter with the Dymo Address Labels as you mentioned as well. I'm behind on the LiveStreams but hoping to catch up as they are very informative.  Will be checking out Label City and the Dymo LabelWriter, thanks again.

  6. I just ordered a barcode scanner and I now need to buy a printer and labels.  For those of you that use labels, what brand/model number (printer) and size labels do you recommend/use. I searched the threads, but did not find my answer. I somehow have over 41,000 books on ComicBase, but if I can't locate them. I don't really have them.  So yes, I need to get busy!  Thanks for any information.
