EMDB v1.55

V1.55:
This app is the best out there! I have approx 3000 movies and loving the way it lets me update my movie database.
Better still, when I found an issue with EMBD, where somehow several movies share the same unique id in my database, Eric quickly responded and promised to provide a fix in the next version.
Thanks Eric, Im a fan for life! 
Cheers,
Michael

My advice, and experience, is to use EMDB at your own risk.

Dont get me wrong - the product is good (in theory) and Ive been using it for several years and as a result now have over 4,000 Titles entrusted to EMDB.

Unfortunately the development of EMDB is a one man band and you the user will be used to test the product in production. Worse - every time a new release of EMDB hits the streets fixing an old problem, magically a new problem will appear to replace it.

WARNING EMDB can, and will eventually corrupt your data. For example unless you enter each entry individually and then exit the program before adding the next Title then there is a risk that data will get corrupted due, I suspect , to poor programming practices like not resetting pointers and clearing values.

And through bitter experience Ive also learned only to delete an existing Title with the renumber database option set to OFF otherwise this risks messing up the relationship between the Title, Actors, and Directors all of which seem to be stored in separate tables and deleting the Title seems to randomly attribute the Actors and/or Directors to other Titles (often you find this out for months and by then its too late to go back to a prior backup).

Once EMDB so completely corrupted the database that it threw away all by latest data entries and reverted to a previous (automatically created) database version. Thats another 4 hours Ill never get back :-(

Lesson #1 when bulk data entering always backup you database every 10 or so new entries and always backup everything before updating to the next version of EMDB.

Also EMDB now does some VERY STRANGE things with the screen when resizing the window because it also wants to also resize the column widths which is the last thing you want it doing (clearly the author does not follow standard Windows programming conventions).

At present the current version 1.14, but since 1.11 EMDB has been suffering an intermittent internal stack overflow and/or code-data problem because resizing the window to certain dimensions (believe me, this is weird) will cause certain program options to stop working and/or the program will simply exit without warning. This has taken me several months to diagnose (another 20-30 hours Ill never get back) yet the software author (Eric?) simply refuses to acknowledge or accept that this problem exists, let-alone try to fix it.

As I said EMDB is a good program in theory BUT USE IS AT YOUR OWN RISK.

So why do I continue to use it? Because Ive invested many, many 100s of hours of data entry (and re-entry) and I simply cant afford the time to start again with another product!!

scorpNZ: yes, thats what I mean.

EMDB v1.06

Haha ! was using dvd profiler & it gave an idea not that it worked but while i had EMDB installed figured remove columns so title was first column on left & low & behold it placed titles in order of ABC awsome:ROTTIE girl what do you mean place #s on top (assuming the sign # = numbers)
