Is there a way?

Post by George K » Sun Aug 30, 2015 11:23 pm

Is there a way on an album with two performers (e.g., Louis Armstrong Meets Oscar Peterson) that the album could be accessed by either person? The current artist
is shown as "Louis Armstrong & Oscar Peterson." The ideal way would not inflate the album count.

Yes you can. Assuming "Louis Armstrong & Oscar Peterson" is entered as one artist you can open the album and delete the "Louis Armstrong & Oscar Peterson" artist entry and then enter the two names on separate lines.

Another method is to use CATraxx to split the names for you. For instructions how please open the Help file and search for "split lookup item."

I hope I understood you properly and that this helps! Let us know how it goes.
Cheers,
Dave
