Hi,

I have just discovered your software and am trying the trial. I will buy the full version if I can find a couple of solutions. I have searched the forum but not been able to find my question anywhere else.

I have a lot of isbns and I want to use the Amazon book details, especially for the descriptions and original titles. However because I have so many isbns it is taking a long time to match my list individually. Is there a way that I can match up my isbns with the plug-ins in bulk without having to do each one individually/manually because I have so many to do?

I hope that someone can help. I have been very impressed so far with the software.

Thanks
CIC

Greetings,

Have you tried Importing existing book lists in TEXT or EXCEL format?

Hi,

Yes I have done that, but I want to pair them up with the details that are supplied by the software from the plug-ins. I have the ISBNs but I want to use the descriptions etc...

Thanks
CIC

Have you tried using "Batch update book details" under "Tools"?

It seems to just do the same ones over and and over again, and ignores the ones that I have highlighted. Any help would be appreciated.
