Batch editing

Post by folksme » Sat May 18, 2019 3:53 pm

Hi everyone,
I am new to this forum. I used to work with CaTraxx about 15 years ago and had my entire music collection catallogued. Then I lost my database in a harddisc-crash. I was stupid enough not to have a backup... Not only was I frustrated, I also didn't have the time to do it all over again. Now I have some time on my hands and would like to try it again.
I have one problem:
A big part of my older collection is stored on CD-ROMs and DVD-ROMs. I can easily add the albums by pushing the button 'Scan folders: Add audio files'. I then see all the added albums in the album view display. So far so good. I would now love to add for example 'DVD 001' to the 'location' field in the 'library' tab of all the albums which are on this DVD. At the moment I have to do it all one by one by hand, which is quite time consuming. I there a way of editing the 'location' field with a kind of batch processing?
Maybe this is a stupid beginner's question, but I really can't find an answer in the help-file or anywhere else.

Many thanks in advance

Hi folksme,

Use the SET FIELD VALUE function. Look it up in Help.
