  1. YearPurchased could be a new column. On upgrade this field could be populated by grabbing the Year([Date Purchased]) and slapping that in for pre-existing entries. I like the Date Picker that we have it's quite handy, if we added a Year Field and then the user unchecked the checkmark I am envisioning only the year field would be populated. Or we just split apart Month Day Year and make them nullable, but ONLY allow numeric, then for DB insertion those could be entered in to the DB as a date/Time Field if the Month Day Year are populated. If only the year is populated then Only Populate the new column Year Purchased. If only Month And Day, do not allow entry to be saved and perhaps offer some validation with UI prompting, perhaps the Missing Field would be Highlighted in Red Text instead of the normal black.... just tossing out some quick ideas In regards to PatrickColin's comments perhaps the data contracts for accepting changes/updates/inserts needs to be updated, to prevent inconsistent/unintended use of the field(s)
  2. Just wondering, is there a way to control what reports appear in the list? For Example: As a single user for personal use, I don't necessarily need/want to see Stamps Owned by Customer in the list Additionally, while the new Cancel Report is a great addition, is i possible to hide this report? I tried deleting the 'Stamps Owned by Customer' report and reloading StampManage but it still appears so it would seem it's hard coded. I restored the file, just so i won't get any error message in the future
  3. The reporting engine was quite intuitive corrected that error with a simple conditional statement Attached is the updated report definition file(s) unsure which files are needed when sharing reports Which files should be provided if looking to share a report? StampPurchases.lsv StampPurchases.lst
  4. Found a minor bug with the revamp that i will need to address due to scenario where i may add a stamp with cost but never set its value prolly look into that next week
  5. After looking into the Reporting engine, which I was happy to see is quite powerful; I decided to revamp/tweak the Purchase Report to meet my needs since i can't leverage the View By Purchase Feature ( ) My goal with the report was to check on purchase over the past month to make sure I did ok with purchases and to help with determining whether or not to use certain vendors Question, I have,.... Is it possible to add option to select Country (guessing pick list would be dynamically created based on where country count (owned stamp count) >0) in the dialog window Perhaps adding beneath Date as an additional field? (unnecessary for Non-Deluxe versions) Oh, minor additional feedback.... when I alter/specify date range can the radio button automatically jump to the 'Show Items using the following dates:' option just lazy, have missed that a few times when trying to create a report. I have attached the report files (unsure if both the LST and the LSV are required) and a sample PDF, would be great to get some feedback and to see if anyone things anything additional should be added. NOTE: If testing the attached please be sure and back up the originals before replacing / altering. I messed up many times before I got it working.

  6. Agreed actual stamp collection is my first choice. I usually use my webcam or scanner, unless I find an optimized photo online
  7. Just following up, is there any troubleshooting guidance for this problem?
  8. The status bar space has potential to showcase more detail. the detail provided already is GREAT! Used Space: Unused Space (dependent on resolution and windows size of course) but is it possible to show something similar to excel? If i select one or more cells it will show summary detail below... sometimes it would be nice to see what a selection of stamps would go for if i select them from the Stamp Manage catalog would be great to at the bottom what the mnh-vf or the use-vf would be (perhaps control what is exposed in summary view from the application preferences menu? Additionally, if not multi-select summary can the StampManage Catalog Country Series (or any grouping for that matter) show the Mint-VF/Used-VF summary instead of just the item count? Example below: status bar Thanks, Jeff
  9. Agreed, a mobile version would be extremely handy! Or might there be plans on the roadmap for a Cloud Version?
  10. I am running the latest build of Stampmanage Deluxe 2019 and i am getting an error when trying to view stamp purchases Unsure how to troubleshoot this, please advise
  11. Hi Pattrick, Thanks very much for sharing those images, much appreciated!
  12. I recently upgraded to latest version and was looking at being more descriptive with my Stamp Albums. From the UI i can see the following: however if i look inside the DB i can see the following: Is it possible to show the brand name field in the UI, this is the only reason why am not using the brand name column, or is this earmarked for removal since Album Manufacturer and Album Brand Name are quite similar? Thanks, Jeff
  13. Appreciate the response, i assume i can remove the original image files, yes? I will just do my editing from Paint.NET and then leverage the import feature. Thanks, jeff
  14. I just upgraded to StampManage USA 2016 and while the experience was alright i am encountering a problem. I recently started collecting FDCs and i figure i would start storing those photos for references purposes. This is likely a user problem so please bear with me as i explain this. I add a stamp, specify the number fill out the information and the cachet type then head on over to the "Picture of my Stamp Page" and attempt to import a picture. BTW the capture from Webcam is nice feature, I will stick to my camera phone as the image quality is a tad crisper. I noticed two things: Selecting Import and then selecting my photo (which i coped to desired location), it duplicates the photo in the folder, is this by design or am i importing incorrectly? Selecting the Import and then selecting the Straighten and Crop button the process runs and hits an error (out of memory). My system is Windows 10 with 48GB Ram and StamManage is using less than 125MB of memory. is it due to the size of the images? screenshot provided for item one shows the original files as <scortts#><Type><Detail>.jpg (1002FDC_ArtCraft.jpg) Thanks in advance, any guidance would be greatly appreciated Jeff
