Unless I am missing something, you can't put images on the column view, nor generate a report of images missing from entered stamps. Either of these would be useful to find stamps in the collection that the user has but the system does not have an image for. By definition, the user must have the stamp to bother entering the item into the database. This is valuable information that, if more easily accessible, might encourage users to scan these stamps and submit them to Stamp Manage so to make the program more complete. As a reminder, one cannot scan stamps from Scott Catalogue pages and submit that - that is copyright infringement. But it is OK to scan stamps you have in your collection. To indicate the need for this, I have some 30,000 stamps in my collection and quite a few are missing from the standard database. I suppose every time I find one missing, I could stop entering collection data, scan the stamp, crop and straighten the image, adjust lighting, import the scan, and go onto the next stamp. But I would find it preferable (more efficient) if I could do batches of them.
If you Search for Text using the Find dialog and sort the Items Found by AssetNum the resulting list of items is not sorted correctly. There are two cases. Case 1. If you set the sort to AssetNum before you start the search, then sort order of the Items Found is about 80% in order. Here is an example of the AssetNum order resulting from a search of my data: 4 12 53 50 135 150 142 177 180 174 186 198 244 246 254 289 298 302 317 335 348 331 342 346 407 402 403 405 Case 2. If the initial sort is something else, like Description, then when you press AssetNum to sort by AssetNum the resulting list is reversed. For this example the resulting order is descending Description.
