I've got 1,023 profiles that span from collection number 2812 to 3835. I don't have any profiles with a collection number higher than 3835.  I need to reassign the collection numbers for those profiles, so that they span from 3201 to 4224 instead.

Is there a way to do this in DVD Profiler short of updating each profile manually?  Unless it's escaping me I don't see a way.  It doesn't appear possible using the "Reassign Collection Numbers" feature.

I see there's an "Insert Collection Number" feature.  When I highlight the profile with collection #2812 and select this option I'm presented with the below.

Insert collection number?
Shift all collection numbers up by one, starting with #2812 - The Bionic Woman: Season 1 (Disc 01)?

This does shift the collection numbers from 2812 forward up by one.  I need to shift them up 389 spots though.  Is there a plugin available that can accomplish this I wonder?

Well, I went ahead and executed the "Insert Collection Number" option 389 times to shift the collection numbers up.  The profiles now span from 3201 to 4224 as a result. It was tedious, but only took 20 minutes or so.  Was less tedious and time consuming than editing the 1,023 profiles individually so there's that.  Would still be interested in learning if there was another way to accomplish this though.

You probably could have done it with an AutoIt macro.

Thanks.  I'll look into that possibility in the event I ever need to do this type of thing again.

Missed this post earlier. BulkEdit does have a Regedit Find/Replace option on column contents. Alternatively, you can use Visual Basic or C# to operate on columns, on a row by row basis. Your code acts as sort of a plugin to BulkEdit's Find/Replace. You can update in place or assign the output of your calculation to a work column that you can later copy / paste into another column. Whether you could read my documentation, implement a script, debug it and run it within 20 minutes is doubtful. It would be the second and subsequent times where it might pay off if a prior script needed to be simply tweaked before running.
Thanks for your support.
