Searchable PDF on iPad

Postby Traned » Mon Dec 19, 2016 8:05 pm

(Sorry if this is the wrong category)
I was wondering if anyone has developed an export of their Catraxx database into a searchable app or pdf for use on iPad?
I would like to be able to search an album and see the tracks and musicians per track plus any memos or notes related to the album. All this data is compiled in my Catraxx but only accessible from my desktop.
Thanks

You can create a searchable PDF already via the Reports option.
Send it to File
Then select PDF.

Thanks Doug, I don't suppose you have a report already in the can that shows by Artist, Album & Track with the musicians per track? If not, no worries I'm sure I can work it up.
Have a Merry Christmas!

Hi Doug, I am building my report but can not find the DBField that refers to the track number. Can you tell me which DBField will let me print the track number in my report?
PS I tried searching the forum but could not find the syntax to search for Track+Number, it alawys returned hits for track OR number which resulted in too many hits.
Thank you!
Andy
