2 in the spread sheet. What am I doing wrong? I simply want to get a list of my isbns to paste them into google books.
I have read about a way to do this in calibredb command mentioned here https://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=67804
however I could not figure out how to do this.
ISBN are Always Text
besides your problem. Numbers will drop the leading Zero (ISBN10)
BTW there are ISBN10's that end in 'X' (valid check digit 0-9,X)
