Which reminds me ... when I was messing around with this I did something like this:

Create 3 custom columns:
#oldisbn
#newisbn
#isbncompare -- a column built from other columns, sort/search by Yes/No
{#isbncompare:'strcmp(field('#oldisbn'), field('#newisbn'), 'No', 'Yes', 'No')'}

Save the existing isbn to #oldisbn
Clear isbn
Run Extract ISBN
Copy the new isbn to #newisbn

browse and observe ...

Nothing.

Put a period in the Search for field, and leave the Replace with field blank.

Edit:
Or maybe a space, but I'm pretty sure leaving it empty works.

I got an interesting one:

First page of the book:

Code:
M.Y.T.H. Inc. Link – Myth 07

9 M.Y.T.H. Inc. in Action 0-441-55282-X 1990 Ace
10 Sweet Myth-tery of Life 0-441-00194-7 1994 Ace
11 Something M.Y.T.H. Inc. Not yet released ? Ace
This is taken from book number 7.
If you would process it automatically, the way to go would be to look for the title on the same row as the isbn.

This could be done in case you finde more than one isbn.
At this moment, this is the first book (series) I found with this kind of identification. Don't know if anyone else has seen it before?

@drMerry - you are dreaming if you think this plugin is going to ever attempt to detect that situation. Remember this plugin was changed to not even attempt to match the single "ISBN" type prefix due to all the ambiguities, they are far worse trying to match on title.

Consider this the same situation as a publisher advertising another book inside - the plugin can never detect that nor will it attempt to. "Most of the time" it will get things right, and sometimes in situations like this it won't, such is life.

I love dreaming
At this moment I'm not very active on the forum. So I do not know what you are working on at all.
This was just something I found and thought you might want to have it on a wish list for some time. (I found more books that where not right indexed, but this is one version that has a possibility to be solved computer based.)

I think most new functions on this plugin will be 'extended search'. Or, how to chose the most likley right isbn number if more ar found.
That's why I mentioned it.

Maybe, someday I will try to build some of that functions. But for now I fully understand that/why you are not implementing this function.

Hi kiwidude!
I'm breaking things again ...

Code:
calibre, version 0.8.7
ERROR: Unhandled exception: <b>NameError</b>:global name 'question_dialog' is not defined

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\dialogs\message_box.py", line 199, in do_proceed
  File "calibre_plugins.extract_isbn.action", line 130, in _check_proceed_with_extracted_isbns
NameError: global name 'question_dialog' is not defined
I think this was supposed to be the warning/question box about how I had changed metadata after the operation started.

I found a new option.
If there is no isbn available, but you can find a 9-digit number, it is possible this is a pre-isbn. A sbn-number.
Adding a 0 in front of this number creates a valid isbn-number.

Quote:
The original standard book number (SBN) had no group identifier, but affixing a zero (0) as prefix to a 9-digit SBN creates a valid 10-digit ISBN. Group identifiers form a prefix code; compare with country calling codes.
WIKI-isbn

E.g. in my library:
DT book used for version 1.1 reference: SBN 4260 5012 6

To get a valid isbn add 0: 04260 5012 6

There is a variant on the sbn version:
sbn: 345-24366-8-150
gives a valid isbn by adding a 0 in front and removing the last numbers to gain a 10 digit number
0345-24366-8

@drMerry - I don't want to do that because it increases further the likelihood of false ISBNs. Perhaps it is a specific publisher or country specific thing, but I haven't (knowingly) come across any books yet that fall into that scenario. Supporting such an edge case is only going to weaken the match quality for the majority of cases.

Well, at the moment I have about 1000 books having no isbn but do have a sbn.
So I think there will be more people having it.

When I manually add the sbn as isbn, I often get a match downloading the metadata so it could be a nice option.
