New version (1.1) is now available from my website. It allows the possibility of having multiline tags, like this...

Code: Select all

Title=Title
Comment=Line1
Line2
Artist=Test
Please note: The first equals (=) character in any line must be directly after the field name. For multiline tags, the additional lines cannot contain an equals (=) character at all.

Anyway to do this with an excel file

Post by Guest » Fri Jul 06, 2007 4:00 pm

This is great but I was wondering if there was anyway to convert that script so instead of an individual txt file it would use an excel file were column A would contain the filename, then columns B, C, .... Etc would contain the fields?

this way one could update a lot of their files at once?

Thanks

I think a script like that could be written, but it would certainly be a different script. It's on my to do list! :)

Hi Trixmoto,

Did you ever create the script allowing for import of tags from a tab-separated text file? I found on this forum a script that does it right now but it's based on columns and not on filenames, so it will overwrite the tags for the wrong files if you're not careful. Would be much better if the script could read the filename from the first column, match it with the file in the database and then import the tags from the remaining columns. My primary use for this would be to import BPM ratings from MixMeister. The only other issue I can see is that MixMeister exports BPM to the 2nd decimal point (e.g., 122.45) and MediaMonkey will only allow integers to be imported, so currently I have to use Excel to round the results. Anyhow, thanks for all your great scripts, I use quite a few of them!

Well this script assumes a single text file for each track. I don't know if there is one which takes the filenames out of a single file. Could be written though! :)

So I'm kind of new at this. I've downloaded the script. I can't figure out how to get to the txt file, I believe it should just find it. So I'm not sure where to save the txt file along with the name of the file.

Thanks in advance

This script tries to find textfiles with the same name as the music files. So, if your music file is...

F:\Music\The Beatles\1\Love Me Do.mp3

...then the textfile should be...

F:\Music\The Beatles\1\Love Me Do.txt

Hi I'm having some trouble, I'm creating the text file but only some of the fields are updating. For example I have a file called "01 - Bounce.mp3" and I have created "01 - Bounce.txt" the same directory. The text file has these lines:

Artist=Justin Timberlake featuring Timbaland, Missy Elliott & Dr. Dre
Title=Bounce
Album=Recrimination
Date=2008
Genre=R&B/Hip Hop

Now when I run the scipt only Genre and Title update, everything else stays the same. What am I doing wrong? Apart from listening to Justin Timberlake :oops:

You need to use the scripting name for the field, which might be different. Check out the wiki for the full list of fields.

Thanks for your help trix, sorry to be a pain but where is the wiki? Again appreciate your help, this should be an awesome tool for me in combinataion with your custom excel reports and Automate software to write txt files from the fields almost instantly.

If I can get this to work I'll be able to get my entire collection right very quickly! Great work, keep it up.
