I haven't used the program actively in many years and am just now starting back up. My question is, is it possible to have more than one database within an installation? I would like to track my collection as well as my wife's.

No, says the man in Washington. It belongs to the poor.
No, says the man in the Vatican. It belongs to God.
No, says the man in Moscow. It belongs to everyone.

I rejected those answers. Instead, I chose something
different. I chose the impossible. I chose…
Rapture."

Yes I believe you can  as I do.. but for two seperate data bases  it should be installed either on separate drive  or separate login .. as long as the documents folder is not being shared .

I have windows installed on two Harddrives , ( XP  pro  on one  and windows 10 on another)  both can be fired up and running after  a cold reboot into the windows of your choice.,  My windows 10 is running version 4 ( beta)_  and the windows xp  is running 3.9  with contributions ..

an area of concern would be the backup to the cloud .. it will under your sign in name ( membership) over write your collection..  so if you do backup this way  pick the one data base you never want to  loose or over write with another .

I also have the 3.9 profiler installed on my windows HP laptop,  as well as the wife's iPad  and of course on my iphone 5e.

Never far from my data ....

It's much simpler than that. File -> Open Database -> New  Database

Or to make it even easier, just create a new Collection Category within your database and put all your wife's discs in that collection.

Not online.

I'm not familiar with this feature. How do I go about doing this?

I don't need the online function, so this may work as well. Thanks!

From the Collection Menu, select Other and Edit Collection Categories...




Then Add a collection, name it, and set the options you want.




And now you have a new collection for your wife's discs.

If you have multiple databases, the one that you have open at the time will be uploaded. If you have uploaded another database earlier, it will be overwritten.

Using custom categories works fine as long as you don't need to have the same profile in two categories. Custom categories will be part of the upload, but won't show online.

While the custom category itself won't show online, its contents will show online if you tick the "include contents in owned collection" box.
