Do you have a recently dated backup that you can load into the software that doesn't have the problem?

Also, can you verify the build version you're using? I don't think there's a v20.0.2.3641  (v20.0.2.3162 is the current available version)

 

Anyone else have this trouble with the recent content update?

No I do not have a recent backup, When went to open my backup they get/got converted to error version also.

I did more looking into it and it is about 90% of any 2nd and above printings show up as 1st prints

Oops  version is 20.0.2.3164 (bad typing)

for this comic, the issue detail screen should have the printing set to 2 rather than 1.

Very odd... I'll forward your trouble up to the programming team and see if they can chime on what's going on.

I'd suggest installing ComicBase 2017 and having a look at your original database. Do a File > File Tools > Rebuild Lists > Issue Information and confirm that your items are really there and listed as you expect. If, afterward, they somehow convert to being first printings, let us know and we'll have a look.

(My suspicion is that you may have somehow entered the -1, -2, etc. part into the issue number field directly, instead of  setting the printing number; if not, I'd definitely want to have a look at the database to see where things are going wrong for you).

The 2017 database has the correct printing #'s.

I installed the 2020 version back in October (ish) I have been adding new issues & new titles  to the database, the AMS 3rd Series #1's were in the 2017 database file before update & correctly in the 2020 database for a while then I went to C2E2 picked up a missing variant (only 1 or 2 more to get them all) went to enter it and saw that  error, then I went to enter in the 2nd print of Detective Comics #660 that I got and noticed 1st, 2nd and 3rd printing were the same & did more checking to find even more 2nd, 3rd & 4th prints have the error as the Identity Crisis as shown above.

The only info I have added to the ASM series & Identity Crisis is qty in stock

You almost need to add a Variant issue # field instead of letters & different printings with as many variants that are coming out now.
