Step Two - Search database

Tip: It is a good idea to make sure that the artists you are trying to enter is not in our database already.  This can happen due to a misspelling in the name, etc. The best way to check this is:

1. To search for an artists, double click on the "Artists" field (the gray field) and a pop up box will appear.
2. Try searching on just the artists last name. Type in the last name or a partial keyword. Practicing with this will make you understand how it works.
3. All results from you search criteria will appear. If nothing is found, move to step three.
4. Using the advise in the Tip above, see if you can locate the artists in our database.  If no results are returned, you are now ready to enter the artists info.
