I kept getting timeout errors and such. Working now though, must've just been temporary server or network issues. Now to test this bad boy out. smile.gif

Using Excel or CSVed with the csv output file is quirky when a multiline unsyncedlyrics tag field is involved.

I ran into this. Is there any way around this when an unsyncedlyrics tag is messing up the format?

It works in OpenOffice.
If somebody knows how to make it work with Excel then I could implement it.

Can you guys help me a bit? I want to export all the tags that are present within a set of mp3 files, without knowing in advance what those tags are.

I've carefully followed the steps at the start of this thread and am trying out the tool on a folder containing three albums by one artist. I now have in the music folder a text file (New export file.txt) which lists the titles and tracks of the three albums. See the picture attached.

What do I need to do to list out all the tags and their values? Mp3tag shows me that there are more tags in there than track title, including year, genre, album art, and some comments.

Please be kind to me as I don't yet understand what "looping" is all about ;-) But I am very willing to learn smile.gif

It does not seem that you followed the instructions.
I don't know why you are messing with a New export file.txt file?
It's not related to my tool.
My program creates ready to use export configs that don't need any further editing.

OK - I really don't understand what's going on :-(

What I want is to create a .csv or .txt file containing each tag and its value from the music files selected in mp3tag. Is this not the right tool to use to do that job?

Any suggestions for how I might create the file I want? Maybe I should start a new thread?

Follow the instructions in post #1 of this thread and you have a chance to reach your goal.

Like I said, I really don't understand what's going on and could do with some basic guidance to help me learn. I think I've done the first steps as instructed. In the screenshot (capture1.jpg) is the Export dialogue, sitting on top of an artist folder with two album sub-folders.

The instructions in post #1 say, "you can use these export configurations". I typed in "002 csv tag dump" as a new export configuration, ran it and got a text file named "New Export File.txt" - I've attached that.

My aim is to be able to export from an artist folder all the tags and their values that are present in any album folders, not just the album name and track titles.

I've looked in the design of "002 csv tag dump" and really don't understand what I am seeing.

There is a line that says, "Use the loop(...) command do loop over specific fields of your files" - and I guess I need to learn what that is talking about. What is a loop(...) command? Where do I go to learn all this stuff? Help, please!

The tool "Export or backup all tag fields" is made for people, who must not understand any line of code in the automatically created export scripts.
Applying the readymade created export scripts is only a matter of executing them, not looking into the export scripts or edit them.
Important are the result output files of type csv, html and text, which have been created by the readymade export scripts.
Note: You have not to create a new export script for yourself.
Note: You have not to type in any name for a new export script.

Before you try another attempt to install and apply the backup tool, it seems to be necessary, that you remove your erroneously manually created report scripts from the list of export scripts.
Open the Mp3tag export dialog and remove all export scripts with names starting with "002 ...".

Please go back to post #1 in this thread.
Install the "Mp3tagCompleteTags.exe" as described in the "Installation" instructions.
Make sure to apply the three steps in the order 1, 2, 3.

Then follow the instruction steps in the paragraph "Then the usual export procedure is".
Make sure to apply the steps in the given order.

Then the Mp3tag export dialog should be opened automatically (if not, then open it with [Ctrl+E]) and you execute the readymade export scripts to create the output files, which you want to work with in your further workflow.

Hmm ... your workflow ... please explain ... for what purpose do you need all the values from the tag-fields to be stored in external files outside of Mp3tag?

Thanks very much for the helpful reply.
Purpose - I want to export the tags to see if I can find out why my Squeezebox Server software is sorting some artists into incorrect locations, even though the tags seem correct. There must be something I'm not seeing on the screen.

I've done the following:
0. Removed from the export dialogue the 002... I had created
1. put Mp3tagCompleteTags in a folder
2. run Mp3tagCompleteTags (note: it had previously been run - does running it a second time stop it working?)
3. set the working path parameter, including quotes (note: already present from the first running of Mp3tagCompleteTags)
4. selected the files to examine
5. right-clicked the selection, chose tools/Mp3tagCompleteTags, and got the result shown in the attached screen shot capture1
6. opened the export dialogue which does not have 002... etc See screen shot capture2

Are you able to suggest how I might get this to work?

In the Capture1 file, did you click on OK in the little Mp3tagCompleteTags Popup?
You have to do this before you open the Export dialog.
Well, first click on OK on the Mp3tag v2.49a Popup, then on the Mp3tagCompleteTags Popup

What's the content of the 001 Generate file?
You can also delete it and try again
