Combining 2 Bookpedia databases?

Postby zappafrank » Fri Jun 05, 2020 7:26 am

I have two Bookpedia databases. Each has the same column configuration. Some entries are common to both databases. How can I combine the two and make the result my default database?

Select all the entries you want to migrate from one and then use "File -> Export > .dvdpedia" format. This will create a file that you can then import as a new collection after opening the second database. You can then drag al the entries to your library to combine.

If it's only a handful of entries you can also drag and drop them to the Desktop. This will create .dcard files that you can double click on the second database to add as if adding a new movie. As those are meant to email between users and it reads it as an add.
