Show only books without Metadata in Calibre for any format

I am sorry if this has been asked before, or if there is a plugin that can be used. I am not real "savy" with Calibre but absolutely love the program. Any help or suggestions greatly appreciated. Thank you.

It is almost impossible to add a book to calibre without also adding at least some metadata. To find a book that lack some form of metadata, just click on the header for that field in the table view. Then all the books will be sorted on that field and you should be able to very easily find books without metadata.

The books in the GUI for calibre are displayed and sorted using only metadata (and covers), so any blank values means that metadata is missing.

Metadata once it hits Calibre is not a Singular

Everything in now by field.
Clicking a column header should group 'like' values together.

Typical searches for unassigned fields:
publisher: false
comments: false

The Quality Check plugin has options for various metadata checks - including missing publisher, rating, etc, etc... and missing formats.
