Cindy--

The only thing that can be done is to edit each book's genre heading individually.  Once it is edited, only one genre/subject heading will show, but each has to be done individually.

Some of that inaccurate data gets in there when it is pulled from other sources, like Amazon, who is somewhat notorious for faulty info.

If you have any other questions about the book editing process, feel free to hail me, or anyone else with a "BD" (Book Data Group) icon under their name.

Cheers,

Catt

Cindy--

You won't get 6 entries.  Once the record is edited, it defaults to one subject/genre entry.  You can change Literature/Fiction to whatever is appropriate, but there will only be one.  The extras will be deleted automatically when the updated record is approved.  That's just how the system is set up.

Let me know if this isn't clear; I'm not sure my brain's awake yet :-)

Cheers,

Catt

Looks like that change has now gone through, Cindy, so it worked:
