I picked up the software a few weeks ago and have been slowly making my way around. I had a program way back in the day called Comic Collector that was actually pretty good. I stopped using it about the time the kiddos came along and the company has long since gone out of business and the data is around here somewhere on an old floppy disk or something.
One of the features it had that I can't seem to figure out if Comicbase has is a storage location field. I used to be able to run inventory by box number etc. Does anyone have any idea if this is possible with Comicbase?

Jay, what edition of CB do you have? If it is Pro or Archive, then you should be set as those editions have several Custom Fields available to use. However, if you have the Express edition, the Custom Fields are not available.

I do go back a ways. In and out of the hobby a bit over the years depending on life's commitments. I'm glad I asked because as of now I have only entered in a few hundred comics. I need to mess around with the software a bit more to get a hang of it. I do like it so far although I'm finding that I have a ton of comics with no bar codes.

JayPS, I had Comic Collector, too. (Boy, do you go way back in time!) Your finding is correct in that there is no designated storage location field. Like Bobb, I use one of the custom fields to identify the box. It helps to stick to a single naming convention for boxes, e.g., Box01, Box02, etc. The search feature quickly rounds up the contents for you.

I use one of the custom fields for bx number & location of my books.
And you probably can use advanced search for the inventory search you want.
(Why are my fonts wonky?)
