In the first image below, I’ve circled the “Value” column (though I don’t know if this is the same report you’re looking at)  Are you just not seeing values in that column or are you also not seeing values on the “Coins” page (the value circled in the second image)?  I’m not seeing an issue with the values field on the report but it won’t show a value if the coin doesn’t have a value on the “Coins” page.  For example, if a coin doesn’t have a grade assigned or if that coins price is based on melt value but the melt value has not been set (these are just a couple of examples) then the program would not have all the information it needs to assign a value.  I think it’d be easier to get to the bottom of this if we spoke via phone; I’m available at (707)987-4499 if you’d like to do that.

I'm using High Sierra.  I'm trying to use one of the "canned" reports because I couldn't/wouldn't believe that such a report would not already be in the toolbox.  If I need to create a custom report, I remain clue free about how to go about getting what I want/need which is a listing of coins I want to sell, by year, mint, condition, and current value.  I can get everything I want except the value for each coin comes out as "0.00".
World coin collecting / Venezuelan Bolivar revaluation
« Last post by Wild Man on March 23, 2018, 09:31:04 PM »
Yesterday, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro announce that Venezuela will revalue the Bolivar at a rate of 1000 to 1, basically just chopping three zeros off any monetary figure.  The new notes, which should begin circulating on June 4th, are intended to address that country’s hyperinflation.  Had he consulted Exact Change, he’d have seen many instances where this has been attempted but led only to further inflation (for example, Turkey, Greece, Zimbabwe and, yes, Venezuela).  The current exchange rate for the Bolivar is .0020 cents.

When you say you’re trying to create a list, do you mean that you’re trying to create a custom report with the report editor, or just trying to print one of the reports?  Also, are you using High Sierra or an earlier version of the Mac OS?

I want to create a list of coins I want to sell.  I want it to list the date, mint, condition and current value.  Whenever I try to create such h a list, either by placing the coins in a bin or by printing a list of coins with a "sell" value, the current value does not appear - all I get is 0.00.  How do I create such a list and where in any documentation does it tell me the steps to take?  I'm using the Mac program.  Thanks.

One further tip. After you have selected all the coins you want to track, you have to click the little "track" box which is just above the large "notes" box, a red check mark will then appear in the track column in the database area at the top half of the window, denoting that they are now tracked. The "series editor" is found by then going back to the actual series of coins list then right clicking on the series in question, in my case Seated Liberty Half Dollar W/O Motto. Clicked on "moved tracked coins here" in the right click menu and voila, they magically appeared.
I am back in business!!! :)

The pricing page automatically sorts by Year, then Mint and then Variety.  This is done so that if you add a new column you don’t have to manually insert it in the correct order to move it yourself.  In some cases, though, that may not be exactly what you want.  We ran into the same thing in the Presidential Dollar series; we don’t want the 2007-D James Madison to come before the 2007-D Thomas Jefferson.  In that case, we wanted the presidents to be listed in the order they served.  So, we added their numerical order to the beginning of their name (i.e. “1: George Washington”).  If you can provide an example of three or four Year/Mint/Variety entries, I’m sure we could figure from that how best to address your question.

The new structure for the Seated Halves a while ago does cause a bit of a stir for this reason; we really should have subdivided it right from the start but nearly 20 years ago when we laid out that structure, we did not envision that the database would expand so much and grow to this level.

Anyway, the tracking function can be used to move these coins to the new subcategories.  To do this, mark as tracked all of the coins to be moved (place a check in the box labeled “Tracked” on the coins page).  If you sort the coin grid by date, all of the coins to be moved will be consecutive so you can select the whole range of coins and click the “Tracked” checkbox once to check them all (if you want to get fancy).  Once that’s done, just right-click (on the series editor) on the series that you want to move those coins to; in the menu that appears is an option labeled “Moved tracked coins here” and that will do what you want.

If that sounds complicated, I would be happy to walk you through it over the phone if you wish.  Our number is (707)987-4499

Hi, I'm getting back into using my EC database after being away for about a year and a half(?). The current version has Seated Liberty Half Dollars broken into 3 sub categories 1839-1866, 1853 and 1866-1891. When I moved my old files onto a new computer with latest version of EC, it dumped my entire Seated Half database into the third sub category, 1866-1891. Help, how do I move the proper date ranges into the proper sections? TIA  :) PS, this is on a PC running Windows 10. EC 64 Bit, version
