Question: Can you help me with this query please? I am using the Handy Library Manager. Our main computer HLM is always in use and if I want to catalogue new books I need to use it, but cannot always get it due to time etc. I can see that if I download the Trial HLM version onto my personal computer then I can catalogue then save to the db file and then put onto a USB and transfer onto the main library, which works but as I can only catalogue 500 items I am not sure that this is the best method? Also, am I able to match the barcode to the main Library? Is there another alternative? Am I able to catalogue items on another computer and have them line-up with the original barcodes when transferred? I can see there is an organizer advantage? Would this work? And I can see also that there was an option for more than 1 user when update ( which I did not notice until I went looking for solutions for my dilemma). Are they options? Or can you suggest another way?

Answer: You can try our Organizer Advantage app—review the topics listed on this page on how to transfer data from advantage to handy. You can also use a separate installation of Handy Library. In this case, enter new items into the Library New Items table.
