I've somehow managed to get myself in the situation where 4 or 5 of the addresses I have for receiving payments have no label.  Possibly addr.dat was overwritten by an older version at some point.

I'd love to add labels to these addresses to make it easier to understand my transaction history but I can't work out how to do this.  I've not found anything with the current client (0.5.1) that can do this and the (-rescan) option didn't help either.

Is there some way of adding labels to these addresses?  Maybe using Pywallet?

EDIT: I've just discovered I cannot change existing labels either.  I think I was able to do this with (0.4.0) so I'll keep a copy of the old software for this.  Perhaps I should look into using the command-line interface to organise and manage my addresses and labels.

Double-clicking on the label will turn it into an edit box that allows you to set labels.

When I double click on an address in the transactions list (bitcoin-qt) I get a "transaction details" box but this gives me no chance to edit the label of the address.

If I double click a label in the sent coins or receiving lists then I can change it (new to me) so thanks for this.

The main problem of adding labels to addresses which are mentioned in the transaction list but do not appear in the sent coins or receiving lists remains.

On the transaction list, right-click, edit label.

Aha!  Thank you very much for this.  I guess it shows that I don't have much experience with GUIs Roll Eyes.

This is not all wasted effort though.  I found that when I tried to edit a label that the window which came up was titled "new sending address", unsuitable for editing an existing receiving address.

Anyway, I'm happy now.  Smiley
