I'm sorry if this is the wrong thread.

I have submitted boatloads of discs for over 15 years, but i was in bad shape for a long time last year and got "lazy" frequently back then. When i added new non existing back then, i didn't upload all of them.

Is there a way to check offline collection with EA codes to see which one's thats online, and which ones is not?
Or is there a plugin that does this?

I can't check manually, because i have 2200 DVD/HD-DVD/Blu-Ray's in my database.

There are probably several ways to do it, but I think this way might be easiest:

(1) Open a new, clean database
(2) Restore your online into it
(3) Flag ALL and save the Flag Set
(4) Now open your real database
(5) Load the previously saved Flag Set - Et Voila!

The ScrapeGoat tool of BulkEdit could probably do the same thing, but not any easier IMHO.

Edit: BulkEdit / ScrapeGoat actually does sort of the opposite and allow you identify what is in the online, but not in the local, which I think is the opposite of what you want. So, the first method I described is more what you want.
Thanks for your support.

Thank you very much for the help. I will do this. Its wrong to have a bunch of profiles offline which doesen't exist online.

No worries. Let us know how it turned out, or if you had to modify the process, or found a better way. Then when the next user comes along with the same question, they will benefit from your efforts.
