Versioning issue

We made changes to our book, bought a new ISBN and pushed our book back up onto Amazon. When I ordered a book, all the changes had been made but the old ISBN was on the back cover. No idea how to correct this. Any ideas greatly appreciated.

Re: Versioning issue

If you got a new ISBN for your book, you would need to make a whole new edition (i.e. publishing it as a separate book instead of changing the original). Plopping a new ISBN in the first edition won't work, and as far as I know isn't allowed in regards to ISBN rules. That being said, depending on what changes you made, a new ISBN might not even be necessary. For example, and among other things, minor changes like editing misspellings or grammatical issues don't require a new one.

As noted, you need to set up a new project for a new edition. You cannot change the ISBN on an already published project.
