Any idea how to put a condition in a report field to determine if an entry is a boxset?

I could not find a field to check on that. Maybe adding a "Has Children" condition would work (there are two other "Has ...")

I have a work-round, but it's not clean.

That should work. Internally DVDP Profiler stores box sets using a Parent/Child relationship. So, any child of a box set has a "Box Set/Parent" field (Profile ID), and all Parents have a "Box Set/Contents" collection (set of child Profile IDs). So it is possible for a particular profile to be both a Parent and a Child.

You could also set a condition based on text found in your notes field.

Possible work-around:

You could use ProfilerQuery to select all boxset parents, create a flag set, load that set in Profiler and create a tag for the boxset parents.

When you buy new boxsets you could set that tag manually.

Or if BulkEdit is installed, it provides Collection>Flags>Flag Box Sets. Then just run the report and use condition = flagged. If you need both parents and children flagged, then BulkEdit also provides Collection>Flagged>Flag Child Profiles, which you run after flagging the parents.
