Search for Metadata?

Can anyone help me here please? Is there any way I can search to find which books have no meta-data so that I can download it. I have over 10000 books and it is a nightmare job to scroll through them all to find the books with no meta-data on them.
Thanks in advance!

Do you mean in Calibre? If so, you'd be better off asking in that forum. That's where the experts hang out.

No is a really broad word
(unknown Author, unknown Title, no ISBN, No series,Unknown Publisher)

a comments:false search will show books with no comments.

To allow calibre do the search continuously for you, I use the following trick:

Preferences > Look & Feel > Column Coloring > Add rule
Set the color of title to red if the following conditions are met:
if the comments column is false

You can do this for other columns as well to your liking.
Have fun!
