I am having the same issue with 2.1 (empty text file returned). 2.0 sort of works, but each track line is quadruple-duplicated. 1.8 appears to work, but is useless to me compared to the features in later versions of this script.

I have tried selecting albums/folders, as well as individual tracks.

My Scripts.ini won't do you any good as each one is different based on what scripts are installed.

Good Luck.

What are your options set to for this script? For example, the UTF8 mode write the file very differently, so if that's not working, you could try doing it in non-UTF8 mode to see if that makes a difference.

[SOLVED] How to set and use TAB as delimiter in Just List Al

Post by jgsylvester » Mon Nov 17, 2014 9:44 am

I have been trying (unsuccessfully) to set the Delimiter in the Just List Albums script extension to TAB. If I enter a keyboard tab, in the Delimiter box, the cursor moves to the next box, which seems logical. If I leave the Delimiter box blank (maybe it defaults to TAB ?), how do I use this "blank" delimiter in the other masks?

The only one I can remember for a TAB shortcut is "ALT + 9" (Press and hold ALT then press numberpad 9), this will draw a small circle when you let go.
I believe this is the universal windows method but i could be wrong.

When I import the .txt file into Excel, Tab does indeed seem to be the default. I just change it to comma and it works like a charm.

Thanks for the response. However, when I type ALT+9 in the mask and the Delimiter, the generated text file from Just List Albums inserts a "?" mark in the tab/delimiter position.

Thanks for the response. How did you insert a tab into the Just List Albums album mask? When I inset a keyboard tab, it just goes to next mask box. Using ALT+9, the resulting text file has a "?" mark in the delimiter position.

I don't do anything in the script, other than I've modified the mask to get what I want. I'm talking about importing into Excel after creating and saving a .txt file. Is that what you are talking about?

My Album mask is <album>Delimiter<Tot> . I am currently using a "\" as the Delimiter. I wish to use a TAB. My problem is I do not know (yet) what symbol or characters to use as the TAB delimiter. If I use a keyboard TAB, that action just moves the cursor to the next mask box. When I open the resulting JustListAlbums.vbs text file in Excel, I have to indicate that the delimiter is "\". That works fine.

Try typing the tab character into notepad (or any text editor) and then cut and paste it into the field - that should work.

The Brothers Johnson - Classics, Vol. 11 (30/15)

PS Was also wondering how to do the list without the number of tracks afterward?

Not sure why my post above was marked as guest, I thought I was logged in... :-?

i was reading through the thread and trying to figure some of this out and was playing with the different fields (album mask, compilation mask, etc). i deleted the info for album mask and now i cant get it to work. i typed in: <Artist> - <Album> (<Tot>/<Max>) which is what i thought was in there before. is there something else to type in to get back to the "default" that was there when i first used the report? sorry i dont know a lot about this stuff.

I believe it just processes the tracks in order, so you can make sure you sort the tracks in the list prior to running the report, and they should be sorted in the same order.

With regards to resetting everything back to default, try re-installing the script again, that should do it.
