  1.  Why Are There Sets Missing From Previous Years And How Do I Get Sets Added To The Program? 
  1.  CPP Inc took over The Card Collector program in January 2003 - the previous owners did not have the manpower nor the resources to keep the program current. We have worked diligently to make up for lost time and we are committed to making this product the best it can be. If you would like to help us add missing sets - please select the " Help Make Updates " page from our main menu.

  1.  With each update ordered - we include detailed instructions on how to convert your current 6.0 collection over to the new 7.0 For your convenience we have also added a link from our main page titled "6.0 To 7.0 Conversion" page from our main menu, or click here

  1.  Why Did You Release Version 7.0? 
  1.  The main reason for the release of the 7.0 was to stabilize and enhance the database. The original The Card Collector program was created in the early 90's and did not take into consideration that there would be literally hundreds of thousands of cards manufactured in the years to come. With that in mind - the program had limitations that needed to be corrected. Those limitations have been addressed with the release of version 7.0.
  1.  Were There Any New Features Added To The 7.0 Version? 
  1.  Yes. We have introduced the "Graded Cards" feature that will allow you keep track of all your professionally graded cards. We have also made the process of backing up your database more user friendly. As new features are added to the version 7.0 we will automatically incorporate them into the updates.
