Hi, back in June I asked how it would be possible to customise the Genre List, so that, when entering any new track, I would be presented only with the Genres that I use in my collection.
I was shown how to achieve this, and it works a treat!
I would now like to know whether I can extend this to the Composers' and Artists' lists respectively?
having a real interest in languages, I always like to enter the composers' names with all the accents and diacritics that appear in their original language spelling. As I have a large number of Polish CDs , if I'm not uniform with the spelling of a composer's name, for example, the subtle differences create separate versions of that composer, and their works.
Similarly, for example, if I'm adding a fresh track by Rachmaninov, having 'Rachmaninov' already in the data base ensures that I don't spell it as 'Rachmaninoff' who will then theoretically be a different composer.
The areas where this is important are Composers, and Artists, so as not to cause duplication. It also is so much more helpful, when confronted with an artist's, or composer's name I know, but, without looking at a similar pre-entered track with the same artist/composer, there's no way from the current respective data bases for me to do this far more quickly.
Is it, then, possible to edit these fields in the same way as I was able to the Genres field, and which works a treat!
Many thanks, in anticipation.
