ISBN Search with truncation

I don't remember if a question was asked about this in the old forum. Some publishers or some series have an ISBN number beginning with the same 9 digits. On the french National Library and on the advanced search engine of Amazon, I can search with a truncation : for example 978193454* the star perm...

I tried too, with 2 books on my shelves : 9788203179655 : Gammelt nytt i våre tidligste ukeblader and 9788290181203 : Barn, krig og litteratur. En bibliografi 1940-1945 No result with Bibsys. but the 2 books were correctly found using National Library Sweden. I think Fredrik is aware of all what's w...

Re: Connection Timed Out Error

Me too ( in France ) since one month, or perhaps a little more.
Same with Bookcat and Catraxx.

Re: Bookcat and internet.dll

Hello Hako,

Open Bookcat, go to : "Tools" -> "Check for update" -> It should download the last version

After this, go again to "Tools" -> "Options" -> Tab "Internet" -> Verify that you have the box checked "Automatically download Internet dll"

All should be OK, after this

Re: Using Primary Genre in sort order

Hi, Did you try with "Edit List Layout" ? You can show "Genre" and "Primary Genre", and then sort them. I don't use Genre, Here are 2 Screen Captures with Fredrik"s Sample Database : 1° The Edit List Layout : http://img4.hostingpics.net/thumbs/mini_361920BookcatSamplePrimaryGenre1.jpg 2° The result ...

Re: Deleting artists/persons

Personal vision : I never delete unused records in Bookcat because I use "Lookup Person" as a biographical dictionary of writers. When I find an old ( in paper ! ) dictionary of writers, journalists,... I record most of them in Bookcat persons. They are also "unused". You may have done this with sin...

Re: Deleting artists/persons

What I would do is :

1° search all "no match entries" : in "Lookup View (artist/persons)" : Toolbar -> Lookup tab -> Show unused records.
delete the ones you do not need

2° I don't know about the structure. Do you mean how to regenerate artist ID ?

I think others here can help you better than me.

Re: Last Modified

I would be interested, too. but only if I don't have to go inside the program ( = rewriting some lines )

I have seen that this field is present in "Tools" > "Database setup" > but noted "internal use"
I never tried to move it to general or to appraisal.
