Before the end of 2017 the board will be down for a brief period of time for an upgrade.
Past experience says less than 30 minutes but I can't predict the future.
Also, there is a high probability that the forum will move to a different host, but that will not happen in 2017.
Thanks,
Doug

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.

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 d...

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...

Re: Can't find a book

Sorry Doug

Perhaps I didn't make it clear, but I couldn't find it using the BookCAT > Book > Add - Download from Internet feature. I still can't find it, with Google Books selected from the options.

Re: Reinstalled BookCat after harddrive failure

Is it the latest registration file or an earlier one? I've been caught out by trying to install an older one & it doesn't work!
