Hi there !

I have a little bit more than 3000 CDs (flac, ape, wav) in my AP Database.
Unfortunately, I did not fill the "country" field in the artist database at each new entry ..

Is there a way to do that "automatically" (afterwards) even if it is partial ?

Many thanks for your support

At this moment the artist database is build op manually anyhow. So I don't understand your question, I guess you filled your database manually so far. Right?

There's no easy way to do it in the Artist Editor, although you might be able to use a keyboard macro recorder if the Country is the same for a lot of them.

Or open the database in Microsoft Access and edit it in there. Make sure you back it up first. It's XML in the Artists table in the Albums database in the file c:/AlbumPlayerData/Albums.mdb
I would not advise this if you're not technically inclined.

Many thanx for your replies

although I think I have the technical ability to manipulate the database ... I do not really want to get into this ;-)

I will then do that manually at my own pace one after the other (around 1000 "country" fields missing) when I have time

By the way, is there a way to filter out CDs via the "sort by" button "by county" rather than "by language" ?

Many thanx again

Actually Country is only an artist attribute. But I will keep in mind that using the country field in combination with the artist overview might be interesting.
