Thanks. I use the card database a lot to look up stuff I do not have and even stuff I do have.

I have noticed that if you do not get a unit's name exactly correct, you do not get the information about it. It is a Great Resource though & for people like myself who is still learning all the units, I use it quite a lot. Learn the units, print the cards when my printer works...lol...proxy when needed & enjoy some Battling. I really like this game & now also enjoy painting & modeling terrain. I like repainting some of my vehicles now as well. Dano, Loco & Ober got me to try it, now it is time spent between games painting & whatnot...Thanks guys...lol

Thats true Kurt but you can use it to your benifit when searching. Say you don't know the exact spelling of the Flammenwerfer 35 you can put any part of it you remember, like Flam or werf , enter them and click search and you will get all entries with that text combination then simply select the correct card and you can view it. The reason mis-spells won't search is because incorrect letters in the mis-spelled words don't match anything in the database so it shows nothing.

Thanks for that info Ober, I'll give that a try when I don't know exact titles or unit names.
Overall, this is a Great Resource Tool, I use it quite frequently.

If you are unsure of spelling, filter your search by unit types and nations. Vehicle, tank, Germany for example will list only one screen of units. This is also a great way to find alternative units you didn't even know they exist, for example elite or veteran units...

While using this method to search, I did it for USSR, it did not show the IS-2 Veteran Tank. It also does not show when specifically using the unit name. Does this mean that it is not in the database & needs to be added?
