Hi I want to amend my category lists slightly.

I currently have my songs listed by decade -
i.e.
1980s
1990s
2000s

I want to now split them by year instead, but still be able to call them in my clockwheel by decade if I want.
I have tried creating a sub category and loading the songs into the sub category
i.e.
1980s
+ 1980
+ 1981
+ 1982

What I want to do is be able to call the main category [1980s] and get any song from the sub categories [1980, 1981, 1982] or call just from the sub category [1982]

Is there a way to set this up ?
Loading the songs into the sub category doesnt seem to show for the main category.
(Or do I have to load all the songs into main category as a duplicate of the sub categories?)

The category hierarchy is only a visible guideline, but has no effect on the Clockwheel methods for picking tracks up.
In order to have the 1980s category pick songs from the 1981 year as well, you need to have your songs available in BOTH the 1980s category and the 1981 category.

SAM can pick up tracks from subdirectories on the harddisk using the DIR / SubDIR commands, but there's no such thing as a SubCAT command in SAM.

Thank you, I will use the Dir / SubDir commands instead.
