Exporting, adjusting and importing a TAB delimited file

Hello,

What a tool! WOW!

I need some information about exporting, adjusting and importing a TAB delimited file.

I have setup the following export file:

$filename(csv,utf-16)Title$char(9)Artist$char(9)Album$char(9)Track$char(9)Year$char(9)Length$char(9)Size$char(9)Last Modified$char(9)Filename$char(9)
$loop(%_filename_ext%)%title%$char(9)%artist%$char(9)%album%$char(9)%track%$char(9)%year%$char(9)%_length_seconds%$char(9)%_file_size%$char(9)%_file_mod_date%$char(9)%_folderpath%%_filename_ext%$char(9)
$loopend()build on %_date% with %_app% - the universal Tag editor - <a href="http://www.mp3tag.de/en/" target="_blank">http://www.mp3tag.de/en/</a>

After exporting I opened the file in ms Excel and made some adjustment in titles, artists, year, etc, etc.

I save the file and now I want to import this file to override the existing tags.

At this point I’m loosing the program logic.
Which steps should I take to import this tab file and write back the new tags to the files?

Thanks in advance.

Sijbe,

I'd first remove the header and the footer from the export configuration as they make it hard to re-import the data:

$filename(csv,utf-16)$loop(%_filename_ext%)%title%$char(9)%artist%$char(9)%album%$char(9)%track%$char(9)%year%$char(9)%_length_seconds%$char(9)%_file_size%$char(9)%_file_mod_date%$char(9)%_folderpath%%_filename_ext%$char(9)
$loopend()

After exporting and adjusting the tags you can re-import them using the Converter :mt_tff: Text file - Tag.

Kind regards,
Florian

What a tool indeed, this program is very powerful.
Thanks for the tip on creating a tab delimited export config.
