Avoid duplicates on import?

I have a long list of books on a spreadsheet which I imported into All My Books a couple years ago. I continued to use the spreadsheet to track books I read instead of All My Books. Now I would like to import only those books that aren't already imported into the program. Is there a way to prevent duplicates when importing?

Hi there!
Yeah, you can use check for duplicates when adding new books in Preferences, "Expert options" tab. And it makes sense to make a back-up copy of your database just in case there are problems. To do that, use menu item Database-Backup.
