Development / export to CSV - me again at it
« on: March 27, 2015, 10:40:43 am »

As my collection keeps expanding, the DB keeps growing, I'd love to have more control over it.

For this procedure I need to export it to CSV.

I have CSVed 2.3.2 to help me modify the file.

And that is essentially it. I'm terrible at it, lost 5 hours without any results.

 Why? Probably due to the number of extra/ personal fields I created over the years.

 I don't understand how databases work, let alone excel. /kingsoft, OpenOffice/

If one of you gents feels extremly generous with their time and would like to help a loser like myself - please PM me or respond here.

blue334 helped me out in 2009 - thanks again, man!

1] Downloaded the portable archive - unpacked to folder - same procedure beed doing since 2008
upon the initialization all I can get - despite disabling OA firewall, adding the viddb.exe to 'trusted', is 'updating database structure'
the programme is stuck, doesn't respond at all, that's a bummer

It happened on my old rig - only 2GB of Ram, core2 5650
Now I'm working on my new laptop - slightly better config, i.e. 4GB, core2duo 6600

Every time I start PVD I better resist the temptation to use it for at least 5 seconds until it decides I'm allowed to use it, otherwise it freezes, which is sooooo frustrating.

To make editing/saving faster I followed your advice and deleted twitter plugin - works!

Am I the only one suffering from it? Is it cause my DB is currently over 2500 titles?

I cannot do anything else but cling to the lingering hope for this issue eliminated in v 1.0

Some of these would make my life easier and some would be a nice addition to my beloved application ;)

1] Price field [the default one cause I've added my own field but this cannot work with statistics and I'd love to see the stats for all the movies I bought, divided by no of movies, and also divided by the no of discs to see how much I had paid on the average]

2] Menu-> filter -> Owned and where is the function that we can tick off meaning we own the title?

3] BoxOffice data - worldwide gross d/led from boxofficemojo perhaps...?


more to come in this thread...

Support / Editing/saving
« on: June 24, 2009, 07:00:40 pm »
I mentioned it a few weeks ago..
Whenever I edit a title and then want to save it and proceed with editing another title - it takes too much time to do so and if I make a mouse gesture/ try to disrupt it it freezes and finally saves the title which is more and more irritating as it never happend before. Am i the only one suffering from this ailment? :)

/vista sp1, PVD 9.9.10
