  • how to use DATE_ADDED in Advanced Search
  • how to use copy ID number in Advanced Search
  • This topic explains how to print barcode labels for recently added items.
  • You can use the same instructions to print spine labels or any report.
  • There are two methods to accomplish this task: (1) use DATE_ADDED in the Advanced Search, or (2) use copy IDNO number in the Advanced Search.

Each time you add a new item (with a copy) or a new additional copy, Handy Library automatically inserts date value into DATE_ADDED data field (copy section). Define advanced search with DATE_ADDED data field to display only items that you entered recently.

  • Check Display Each Copy (A). You should be in the Copy View mode.
  • Use library Advanced Search.
  • Select DATE_ADDED in the Field box (1).
  • Select condition type in the Condition box (2).
  • Select date value from the Calendar (3).
  • Click Include (4).
  • Click Search (5). Search condition is executed and the Library main catalogue displays items that satisfy the condition.
  • Click Print Labels or Print Reports. Predefined or new labels or reports will only include the currently displayed items.

  • All reports and labels executed from the library main window include only currently displayed items. In this case there were 3 records displayed that satified search condition, so only 3 records are on the barcode labels.

  • DATE_ADDED data field is listed on the grid.
  • When you click on the column header (DATE_ADDED), all your library items/copies will be sorted by entry date.
  • DATE_ADDED data field is displayed in the copy section (2).
  • When new item (copy) is added to the library our system automatically fills in the date entry value in the DATE_ADDED.
  • DATE_ADDED is in the Add/Edit copy window.

  • When new item (copy) is added to the library our system automatically creates record id number. ID numbers are unique and increase incrementally by one. There are two id numbers displayed on the grid. The IDNO represents main item identification number. The ID represents copy identification number.
  • Use ID (copy identification number) in the Advanced Search to display only items that were added recently.
  • In order to have access to the copy identification number you have to turn on the Copy View mode.
  • Check Display Each Copy (1).
  • ID numbers are listed on the grid (2).
  • ID numbers are listed in the copy section (3).

  • Use library Advanced Search.
  • Select ID in the Field box.
  • Select condition type in the Condition box (Is Greater Than).
  • Enter id value of the item that you processed lastly.
  • Execute search. Library main catalogue displays items that satisfy the search condition.
  • Click Print Labels or Print Reports. Label or Regular reports will only include currently displayed items.

Questions:

This topic explains how to:
I'm using Handy Library and trying to print out my bar code labels. I have already printed out about 3700, but I have since added a couple hundred more books into the system. How do I just print out the books that I've added, and not the whole set again?

We have the primasoft handy library software and I have been trying to print barcode labels for books entered into the database in the last three days.
