*** Mp3tagCompleteTags ***
*** Export or backup all tag fields ***



Here is a tool that lets you export all tag fields of the currently selected files


By default it only works if your Mp3tag settings are in %appdata%\Mp3tag
i.e. c:\Users\{user}\AppData\Roaming\Mp3tag\
It can be changed in the settings.ini file.



I) Installation:
  1. Copy Mp3tagCompleteTags.exe to a folder of your choice.
  2. Run it once and follow the instructions!
  3. In Mp3tag go to "Tools > Options > Tools" and add Mp3tagCompleteTags.exe as a tool.
    As parameter add "%_workingpath%" (with quotes)
    "[ ] for all selected files" must be unchecked!
  4. (Optional but recommended) Go to "Tools > Options > Messages"
    and disable "[ ] after change"

II) Then the usual procedure to export is:

for Mp3tag v2.47 and newer
  1. Select all the files you want to export in Mp3tag
  2. Right click on a file and select "Tools > Mp3tagCompleteTags"


for Mp3tag v2.46 and older
  1. Select all the files you want to export in Mp3tag
  2. Execute the action "Export#Generate"
  3. Right click on a file and select "Tools > Mp3tagCompleteTags"


Now the export dialog should be opened (if not open it with [Ctrl+E]) and you can use these export configurations:

002 csv tag dump
export all tag fields to a csv file
002 csv tag dump utf-16
export all tag fields to a csv file tab delimited

002 html tag dump
creates a html table of all tags

002 html tag dump (frames)
creates a html table of all tags with ID3v2 frame names in the header columns

003 txt tag backup
export all tags to a text file which you can reimport with "Convert > text file - tag"
The matching import string will be saved to the file 00 ImportString.txt

003 txt tag backup (per Folder) (check [X] One file per folder)
export all tags for each folder to a text file which you can reimport with "Convert > text file - tag"
The import string will be saved in the last line of each file.

Some additional files are also created in the data directory:
AutoColumns.ini
AutoColumns.Frames.ini
Two columns ini files that contains all tag fields. You can load them at "View > Customize Columns... > Utils"
Save your current columns settings first if you want to be able to restore them.

Auto-usrfields.ini
A tag panel ini file that contains all tag fields. Replace the original usrfields.ini with it to get all tag fields in the tag panel

v2.3
Attached File  Mp3tagCompleteTags_v2.3.rar ( 322.9K ) Number of downloads: 847



* Thanks to DetlevD for his export scripts that I used as template

Thanks, now I can see the problem. There is something wrong with the path in the export file 001 Generate:
You said the file started with this code:
$filename(C:Users\Us\AppData
well it should be
$filename(C:\Users\Us\AppData
so the important backslash after c: is missing (I don't know why that happened)

Ok to check if this error persists go to the menu mt_format.png Actions [press Alt+5] and delete the action called '&Export#&Generate'
Then again delete the Export 001 Generate

Then select your files and start the tool

If it still doesn't work then go to the folder
C:\Users\Us\AppData\Roaming\Mp3tag\data\actions and find the file '&Export#&Generate.mta'

Open it with a text editor and tell me what's in it.

The missing \ is my mistake - I typed the path wrongly in the settings.ini file :-(
(First time I tried to run this tool it failed because it couldn't find mp3tag, so I used the settings.ini file)

I have deleted the two things, re-run Mp3tagCompleteTags.exe, selected the files then right-click/tools/Mp3tagCompleteTags. After clicking the "Action finished" box, along comes a debug message - see screen shot. No file is output.

The .mta file contains this:
[#0]
T=15
F=001 Generate
1=C:\\Users\\Us\\AppData\\Roaming\\Mp3tag\\data\\columns\\AutoColumns.Names.txt
2=0
3=0
