What's New in Version 5.3.0 - 5.3.2 (11/06/2002)

To put it simply, ALOT!

We've been able to add over 12,000 additional titles, and values for nearly 90,000 additional issues.  I've added a number of changes to FWIW to handle the additional volume.  Please take a look at the help pages which can be found here.

In addition, there is an updated helpfile which will be downloaded with version 5.3.0 - you can also download it view it here.

Because of the massive effort in pulling in all this additional data, without question there will be some data errors.  As you find them, please jot them down, and every once in a while, send me your latest list.   Over time we will try to correct anything that it incorrect now.

The Single Quote Problem:

You need to delink, and then re-link any titles containing a single quote.  Here's the easiest way to do that.

  • Click the options button on the toolbar
  • Make sure the Show Issues for Matched Titles Only option is selected
  • Select All Dates in the As of Date drop down
  • Click Refresh
  • Click Close
  • Let the update program complete the match process if it starts to go through it.

  • Click the Find button on the Toolbar
  • Enter *'* in the Title field (an asterisk, followed by a single quote, followed by an asterisk)
  • Enter True in the Matched Title Ind field
  • Click the Find (And) button

That will display all the issues in the update database that have a single quote anywhere in the title, and that match one of the titles in your Realms database.

Click the Match button on the toolbar.  On the Match window, select each of the titles with a single quote from the list on the bottom of the window

You should notice that one of the entries will have a double quote instead of a single quote (I fixed it already in the example above).  Once you've selected the title, click the Delete Link button.  This will remove the linked titles from the list at the bottom, and place them back into the lists.

Select the title from each list, and then click the Link button (<==>).   This will re-link them correctly.

Repeat this process for each title.  Once complete, run the update process for all dates for these titles only.  That is the current selection criteria, so you should be able to simply close the match window and click the Update Collection button.

That should get everything back up to date.
