Hi eddie,
I have a report that shows what you want with a bit of extra info.  I couldn't find it in the report listing and don't believe I was the author.  It seems that it would be simple to edit.  If interested, post and I'll try to make it available to you. I have my discs in binders and in the picture "Film" is the Location and the 4 digits which follow are the code for the year and month of release which is the Slot info.

First, please read my post here in this thread.

I suggest to add, if you didn't already use it, the Database Query plugin. You can find its download location here (this link can be found on this site on the Downloads -> Plugins page).

This plugin also reads the location and slot info from the DVDprofiler main program. Use the 'Personal Information' tab (left column selection) to compose your selection. Once you've run a query, you can add or remove columns to the list to a large extent, like adding the 'Collection Type' resolving your 'personal tab' requirement. You can edit columns by right clicking on any column title then click or unclick what you (do not) want to see.

Select the whole list (click the first profile, then goto the last and shift-click it) and copy (the lefmost small icon below the title bar). The list is now on the clipboard.

Open your favourite spreadsheet program (like Excel or LibreOffice) and paste -- these programs are well suited to column editing. Add your final touches to the report and save it or print it.
Eric

If it is important, say it. Otherwise, let silence speak.

Hi eddie,
I edited the report to only include the Title and Location/Slot info.  Rather than asking what you'd like you can download the file, put it in your Profiler/Reports folder and check it out.
Here's the link.

Hi again,
My previous  folder reference was incorrect.  Report files are located in your "...My Documents/DVD Profiler/Reports" folder.  At least that's the location with Win 7.

Hi again eddie,
If you're still following this; the Report I posted a link to was something that could be used as a common starting point so we'd be discussing the same thing. I really didn't expect it to meet all your needs.  If you still have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.
