Adding the same title, but different formats...

After reading all the great stuff about the organizational abilities of Calibre, I'm going to give it another try in order to utilize the program the way it was designed.

I am NOT a computer person though and I need help, but described very basically.

I have a book in two formats (DRM'd .azw & .pdb). How do I add them to my Calibre library so that they are in the same file instead of in two different files?

My version of Calibre is 0.6.27.

Add one of the two formats to the library - it doesn't matter which one. Then, locate it in the library, right click it, and select "Edit Metadata" from the popup menu. You'll see the metadata editing screen. In the upper right of the screen is a list of the current formats for that book, with buttons for adding new formats. Add your other format there.
