How to print a list of anthologies with contents

Post by J.F. Le Deist » Thu Jan 26, 2017 9:04 am

Since years, I know how to fill the database, but now, I need to publish list of books with full contents

- For simple books, I used to create a new layout with all informations I needed, copy to clipboard (simple), paste in Word, and print...

- For anthologies, I can't find a solution :

1. I created a new layout :

Book.N° in series
Book.Author
Book.Title
Book.Cover price
Book.Date
Book.Content Author
Book.Content

I could only have a column of contents authors and a column of contents titles :

Not what I wanted !

2. I went in Contents View and created a new layout :

Book.N° in series
Book.Author
Book.Title
Book.Cover price
Book.Date
Contents.Author
Contents.Title

I could have the result ( screenshot from Word ) :

Better, but not exactly what I wanted.

What I want is something like this :

1, (collectif), La vie d'aventures, 1,00 Fr. F, 19..,
Jacques LIÉNART, Le vainqueur des tigres
Jean NORMAND, Le nouveau Nautilus
Jean NORMAND, Le roi des placers
M.-R. NOLL, En mission diplomatique
Jean NORMAND, Les ailes glorieuses
2, (collectif), La vie d'aventures, 1,00 Fr. F, 19..,
Jean NORMAND, Le trésor de la déesse
Jean NORMAND, Le secret de la mine
Jacques LIÉNART, Prisonniers sous les flots
Jacques LIÉNART, Les naufragés du Diana
Guy VANDER, Les chasseurs de la mort
3, (collectif), La vie d'aventures, 1,00 Fr. F, 19..,
Jacques LIÉNART, La harka de Sidi Ambreck
Jacques LIÉNART, Les rescapés du Nameless
A. JOST, Dans la forêt africaine
Jacques LIÉNART, Le maître de la jungle
Jean NORMAND, Le champion de la Sierra

Do you have an idea how to obtain this ?

Actually, I use the solution 2 and edit the Word result ( deleting most of the Book numbers, titles, .. and keeping only the first line of Book references )


Thanks.
