World coin collecting / New Exact Change YouTube Channel
« Last post by Wild Man on June 04, 2018, 12:59:18 PM »
We’ve just set up a YouTube channel to stream Exact Change videos and we started it off with a fun little video about the cold war and it’s affect on coinage.   Please take a look and be sure to give it a thumbs up in order to help us really launch this new channel.

Hi,

I have a solution to send to you, but I can't seem to find an email related to this so I'm not sure who to send the file to.  Please drop me an email and I'll send that right off.

Hi, can you send me a copy of the user.ecp file?  A collection file with the user-defined series included would also help.  If you attach them to an email and send it to WildMan@ExactChange.info, I will look into it.

Technical support / Mac High Sierra Version - Possible Problem
« Last post by glaguna on May 23, 2018, 03:06:25 PM »
I am using version 4.0.0.37 on Mac OS High Sierra and have run into a potential problem.

I have on several occasions gotten the spinning beach ball when adding coins to a user defined series. I would be able to add a coin to the series pricing window, but switch to the Coins view and trying to add a coin I would get the beach ball. I would usually wait a few minutes then force quit. I would then go back to the next to last save and redo my entries, usually without additional incident for a while.

Most recently when this happened, I decided to allow exact change to run on, and surprisingly it came back after 10-15 minutes, and things seemed ok for a while.

Today, adding a new entry to the series I got the beach ball when switching from Pricing to Coins view, but exactChange came back in just a few minutes. However, when I went to add a coin using the Coins view, I noticed the "Year, Mint & Variety" selector had over 150 entries. There are only 26 entries in the pricing view. The 150+ options in the selector contains many dups, all corresponding to the series.

This led me to look at info for my User.ECP file, which is now showing 35MB. A copy I made from a few months ago was only 2MB. I have less than 2K entries in exactChange, so I am thinking the size of this file may be a clue to the problem. Perhaps something like a cross product join in the DB realm.

I'm guessing my User.ECP needs to be cleaned up to remove dups. Any way to do so?

Thanks!

If you have “Auto add new coin types” turned off (under “Options” in the “File” menu) then that will keep the program from popping up a message about adding any new coin types found in the new price list.  You can right-click on “United States” or “Entire Collection” and choose “Update this series” to add in those new coin types.

Technical support / Jim Thorpe 2018 Dollar

I recently updated my price lists (date on United States.ECP file is 4/7/2018) but when I look in dollars the last dollar series is Sequoyah from 2017.  Am I missing where the 2018 Jim Thorpe Native
American dollar coin is?

Thanks in advance!

You will be happy to know that I finally got the updated coin list to work and now I can see the 2018 Proof sets in the database.  Thanks!

I think perhaps I’ve misunderstood your initial question then; this is something different than I was picturing.  I see that you’re online right now and I’m in the office now (and will be until 2am) so if you’d like to chat via phone, that may be a far faster way to clarify this and get to the bottom of it.

The number here is (707)987-4499.  If you're writing from outside the U.S., just let me know.

Just so you know, I did just update the program to the latest version yesterday.  I then selected update prices and got the download box, then went back in and selected it again after the download was complete.  Sometimes it doesn't seem to do anything and other times I got an error.  I also selected 'All Coins' and get the same error.

Yes, we’ll have an announcement about it in the near future.  There are some really big projects in the works now (new databases and such) so we’re just looking to do an orderly rollout.
