U.S. coin collecting / Re: Newest coins - why no way to enter?

I think perhaps Ive misunderstood your initial question then; this is something different than I was picturing.  I see that youre online right now and Im in the office now (and will be until 2am) so if youd 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, well have an announcement about it in the near future.  There are some really big projects in the works now (new databases and such) so were just looking to do an orderly rollout.

2018 is listed in the mint and proof sets; I just downloaded the price list and confirmed that.  So, Im wondering if, when youre downloading the price list and it pops up with the list of countries, do you have United States checked in the list?  It remembers your previous selections and defaults to that, so if it got unchecked along the way, thatd basically be turning of updates to that particular price list.

I also have the new 2018 coins to enter and I have done the updates (All Three).  I cannot find any 2018 in the Mint sets category under US coins.  The Field still says 1947 - 2017. Is there something else I should do to get the 2018 to show?

Here is one for those out there that take photos of all their coins, obverse and reverse. This one is less for printing out (as it would take a lot of ink on a good printer) and more for a PDF of your collection. All the details that I find important are surrounding the images of the coin in the following layout.

Center: Obverse Photo, Reverse Photo
Top Left: Year, Type, Mint Mark
Top Right: Mintage, KM#
Bottom Left: Size
Bottom Middle: Metal, Metal Content
Bottom Right: Inventory#

In the attached images you can see examples of how it lays it out on for each individual coin and how it lays it out on the page. (I tend to photograph my coins on a cotton bullion bag which is why there is the weave pattern under the coins in the photos.) A lot of room for improvement on this one, but it is an easy and organized way to have photos of all your coins on you when at a show. Possibly to add in the future is the weight above the size, the grade/value above the inventory number, and variety at the top somewhere. But it is now yours to play with!

Now that Mac OS X is starting to tease us about 32-bit apps, is there thought to creating a 64-bit version of Exact Change? Happily running on High Sierra.

Thanks for a great piece of software!

Reaching out to the ExactChange community...everyone share your reports! Did you make a custom report that you use all the time or that you find extremely useful that maybe someone else will benefit from as well? Share it here and let everyone enjoy your hard work and talent! While the included reports are helpful, the Report Press is quite powerful and is included with the software to customize reports for more specific or more general needs that we may have.

To start this off, attached is a report that I have been working on. This report mixes a pricelist, a checklist, and grades owned all into a single report that is compact (meaning the text might be small for some) and dual column so the page count can be limited. First the coins are sorted by series so that you can do a whole collection, specific country, specific denomination, or specific series report. Then it is sorted by year, mint mark, and variety under each series. To the left of the year is a checkmark if you have the coin in any grade and nothing if you still need it. To the right of the year is the highest grade of the coin that you have. Beside that are the prices for the most common grades in my collection (VG8, F12, VF20, EF40, AU50, MS60, MS62, MS63, MS64, and MS65). Within each "price box" is the number of coins in that grade that you have. Then to top it all off, there is a slick gradient behind it all and a dotted rule underneath to separate each row. My purpose for this report is to bring to coin shows as a quick reference of what I have/need and their current book value.

Give it a look and let me know what you think can be added to make it even more useful! And please share what you have created!

I'm here all day and will be here until around 3am; call any time at (707)987-4499.  We don't have a message about the program not being optimized so I would imagine that's actually a message from another program.

Agree that a phone conversation may be more helpful, but our ability to connect at appropriate times seems to be problematic.  Additionally, I have just now opened my file and got a notice that my "program was not optimized".  Has there been an update and if so, what's the link to download it.  Thanks.
