Hi,

I am successfully exporting my collection details to csv and can bring it into excel. I use | as a deliminator. (The default ; didn't work because too many titles have that too). Some of my tags have multiple entries, typically genre, and use // as separator for them. The exported file seems to drop anything after // in genre so I only get the first genre item in the csv

Can I do anything fix this?

Thanks Mark

from the help files:
ZITAT
$meta(x)
returns all values of field x (e.g. $meta(artist)). If multiple values of that field exist, they are separated with ", ".

$meta(x,n)

returns the nth value of field x (where n starts at 0, e.g. $meta(artist,1)).

$meta_sep(x,sep)

returns all values of field x (e.g. $meta_sep(artist,; )). If multiple values of that field exist, they are separated with sep.

Hi thanks for that.... looks I need help for the help files!! I have no idea what that all means. It is fun learning though biggrin.gif

The more I use mp3tag the more I am impressed with it. You can do just about anything but it takes quite a bit learning for a novice and much testing to figure it out.

Thanks, I think that has pointed me in the right direction
