Re: Counting Entries

Hi Thanks for that, but unfortunately it doesn't really provide the info I'm after. What I really want is to find stuff like an author count in my contents. To explain further I'm working through some magazines and creating a listing on the contents. Select Book (in this case magazine title) and sel...

Counting Entries

Hello I do hope people are still reading requests for help! I would like to count how many entries there are, say for each publisher. There is a lookup view for publisher which has 3 columns, labelled 'Publisher', 'sort by' and the ID number. What I would like is a 4th column, which displays how man...

Re: Hello

Well that's a problem as no longer supported or for sale.
Not sure how to progress, the only option would be to 'acquire' a licence which is no longer wanted.

Kevin from Oz too.

Searching using wildcards

Thought I'd wake this group up by asking a question!

I have a lot of keywords in the contents. Trying to figure out how to search with a wildcard.

Suppose I was looking for instances of 'Melbourne' or 'Milbourne'.

A * or # or ? in the appropriate spot, gives no results, yet I know they are there.

Do you have a back up?

Or else try Tools > Repair Database.

Re: Last Modified

I approached this from an entirely different angle. I had discovered the 'Forms Designer' method shown by Alex. However, what I wanted to show, was entries that I had altered in to me a significant way. I wanted to see items with meaningful changes & not when it was last altered in any way. By defau...

Re: Wrong book using ISBN 13

Yes that does seem to be the problem. The lady that owns the book, tells me that a sticker has been put over the ISBN 13 number, on her copy. So it appears that Amazon US has corrupted that book in their database and of course anyone who uses Amazon US as a reference source, gets it wrong too! Thank...
