I have 5 Member Exclusive ornaments and they are not in the 2017 database. Does anybody know if there is a way to enter them manually?

Yes, there is!
...oh, never mind. I am still using my 2015 edition until a couple more ornaments arrive. But maybe this will still work...

- Go to "Work With Collection"
- Toward the top of the screen in the group of options, is a "New" button.
- Click on that and you will get a blank screen.
- Now you can easily enter your ornaments and even add photos!

There is certain info having to do with market value that is not available but otherwise you've got the full deck.

Perhaps some of this has changed in the 2017 edition, but at least this will give you a place to start looking. Good luck!

Sean didn't have all of the information he needed to put these in the 2017 edition, but he has said that they will be in the 2018 edition. I have sent him all the information he'll need.

He is considering producing a file that people could run to add these to the price guide.

If he doesn't offer the file, next year you'll want to add the record from the price guide, update it with your information, and delete your record that you created for each ornament. That way the records will update going forward.

I'm still using the 2013 version, so I've been manually entering all the ornaments we've bought since then.

I just checked the 2017 version of Yulelog and the process that Barb described above is still the same.

Sgrigby1, I entered mine on the 2017 program and copied a picture of the ornament from ebay. Had to save it to my computer and then copied it off the clipboard.
Hope this helps you a little, Barbara's instructions are exactly how I did it.

Yes, Joyce, to the picture process. Google images is also a good source. I love that YuleLog offers that option.

My pet project right now is going backward through my collection and adding/fixing all pictures I can. I'm back to 1999...still a long way to go, but it's rather enjoyable to get a visual review of my whole collection. And thrifty, too. On my "want" list were three ornaments that I found were already in my inventory!

Are you finding any that Yulelog has added the pictures for that weren't in there at some time previously? I found that after the 2012 rewrite many of the older ornaments that were reissued lost the picture on the first year, only to have it appear on the second year. I sent Sean a list of those and they may have been fixed in the 2016 version but may not have been fixed until 2017. I also found some that said that if you had a picture you could send it to Todd; between the two of us those have now been cleaned up also. ;-)

Nancy, I only purchase YuleLog updates on the odd-numbered years. If a picture disappeared then reappeared, I'd never know it! :-)

I'm hoping to see that the Price Guide pages that had incorrect or no pictures have been revised to include correct pictures. I run across this mostly with the older ornaments and occasionally among newer ornaments.

I know at some point I'll have to upgrade, but I'm worried I'll lose the info and pictures I've added. I went through my entire database and added pictures, added info, corrected info.

Has anyone had a problem with losing pictures or info they added?

I'm still running the 2013 version, but I also manually added all the ornaments with pictures from 2014 thru 2017. If I upgrade will they be lost?

Stan,

You will have to save the file using the utilities button and not the save button when you quit the program. I ran into this problem a while back and that is what I had to do then. I continue to do that now every time I exit the program. I never use the save when quitting. I always save with the utilities button.

I haven't upgraded since 2000. I have manually added the ornaments EVERY YEAR.

My problem is I had a MAC that is so old that I only keep it because I have the ornament program on it. Otherwise it would be in a trash can already.

I no longer use a MAC. Even with directions the idea of moving it off a MAC and onto the new computer just blows my mind.

I would rather take three times as long to enter the ornaments every year than even try.

I may try this in the next couple years, but I'm still nervous about an update. I spent many hours getting all the data, the pictures, removing duplicates, etc., corrected.

I think that I sent Sean pictures for ornaments that had no picture or had the wrong picture up through 1999. I hope that helps people like you who are entering older ornaments. Let me know if you find some and we'll see what we can do. I don't think Sean has a good idea about where to go to get pictures.

Some day I'll get back to going through the price guide, item by item by year to see what's messed up and/or missing. I think I got to 2003 before I had to pursue other issues in my life. I know I didn't even think about going back to that when I was trying to get this year's update verified because more people tend to use newer records than older ones, and those of us who do use the older information just want to throw up our hands and say "I give up!"

Michele, thanks so much for this tidbit of info. This is the first year I will have a lot of ornaments manually entered - my 2016s - plus the pictures I've added from the vintage years. I will definitely do this!
