Bug when adding values to new stamps in Stamp Data Manager

So I decided to use the Stamp Data Manager to add a large (100+) group of stamps to the Austria database.  Went through the usual process of adding all the stamps then went through and added the various values for all of the new stamps (eg. mint vf, use vf, etc.).  All those values showed up in the Stamp Data Manager.  Then I closed the Stamp Data Manager.  Then opened the program to actually add the stamps from my collection.....but....while all the stamps that I had added appeared, NONE of the values were showing.  So I went back to see what was happening and it turns out that if you add stamps via the Stamp Data Manager you can not add values to those stamps you have just added unless you first close the Stamp Data Manager before adding the values and then re-open the Stamp Data Manager and THEN add the values.  A very frustrating situation....and I suspect it is the reason that I see so many stamps that have been added to the data base in recent years but with no values.  I think people either don't realize the problem or if they notice it, they don't want to go back and re-add the values after spending a lot of time doing it originally.

Any chance that there may be a fix to this???

I think this is happening because the program needs to add the latest varieties to the default value table.  This will happen when you click CLOSE in the Stamp Data Manager.  We will try to improve this so it will happen in other situations such as when a variety is added from within the ADD STAMP dialog.

After you enter new varieties in Stamp Data Manager, click close on the left side of the Stamp Data Manager screen.  This will append the new Stamp Data Manager entries to the default value table.  Then open the StampManage Catalog screen on the left side of the screen and open the Value table should be named something like 2020.  Find the scott numbers that you want and add your values

Yes, that is another way to add values.  However, the problem I reported is that SM allows you to add the values after one has added new stamp varieties in the Stamp Data Manger and before that screen is closed.  If you do that, however, once you then close the Stamp Data Manager, all those new values that you have added are lost.  Ideally, (1) SM should be changed to retain those values, or (2) SM should prevent one from adding values at that point or (3)at least there should be some kind of warning that any values added before first closing the Stamp Data Manager will not be retained.
