Yes, I found this by looking around the application. I now have the books
grouped by genre with categories that are useful to me.

I noticed that. It was the unsorted ones that threw me at first until I saw
that the update left the binding field blank. I filled those in myself.

It's an excellent tool that so far does all I want. There's one feature that
would be helpful to me and it may well be in a 3.x version. When Pat
released Slackware-15.0 and I upgrade all hosts on the network I'll also
upgrade Tellico and learn what's different.

Thanks for your efforts and help with my learning to use Tellico.

Carpe weekend,
