Did you actually have Cast checked in the export?
Yes, of course. I just tried to enter a fake variant in my database, and your tool found it. So my conclusion is that I have no variant that can be found with your tool, which is a very good news. I worked on my database to eliminate all variants, but I feared to find at least a few dozens hidden somewhere.
In fact, it is more easy to track "same actor, different names", than "same name, different actors" which is the real problem for a correct linking.

Just curious to read from some, what info do you keep locally that can't be contributed to the database?

Correct names for cast and crew
Overviews that are real overviews (not just advertising)
Images for gallery

... for your local database.

Of course, but we are here in the general discussion forum, not the contribution forum, so every solution may be shared...

The drawback is that the scan isn't searchable. But if you feel that whatever info you enter there is more important, then go for it.

The overview field is searchable, so you can enter a text with all the keywords that you want. Much more useful than to recopy what is on back cover...

In the layout I use, I have a scan of the back cover which gives a very good copy of the "DVD" overview, with all details, fonts, colors and spelling mistakes... So the overview field can be used to have something useful concerning the movie, without advertising nor spoilers...

It would need a complete data base redesign.

This has been discussed for more than 10 years and we never saw it. I'm sure it will never happen. And we have more important things to solve than "accuracy" of credits : linking of "same actor/different names", and non linking of "same name/different actors".
Credits do not always represent reality (= who really played or worked in the movie), so recopying them exactly is of little interest. And even when they are correct, we transform them with Invelos rules (change letters), and introduce errors that they have not, making them incorrect...
IMDb gives correct linking and generally correct names. Even with its errors, it is far more correct than our mess (cannot call it a database).

pour alain60
Je ne sais pas comment faire pour faire un rapport permettant d'éditer toute la collection classée par genre. En plus, souvent un film appartient à plusieurs genres.  Par contre on peut créer un filtre par genre (faire un tri sur la collection, et enregistrer ce tri) , et imprimer un rapport en utilisant ce filtre. Répéter l'opération pour chaque genre souhaité.

Pour diane.r
D'abord faire une sauvegarde de la base de données du PC.
Puis il faut créer une deuxième base de données (menu Fichier/ouvrir une base de donnée/nouvelle base) et télécharger dans cette nouvelle base ce qu'il y a online. Faire une sauvegarde, avec un autre nom que la précédente pour éviter les confusions.
Réouvrir la base de donnée initiale du PC, et y restaurer la deuxième sauvegarde avec les options restaurer des profils spécifiques/sélectionner tout (très important, sinon on écrase tout). Les profils seront alors ajoutés aux existants.
