Text file to TAG

Hi there, I am trying to convert a text file to TAGS - done it before but maybe 2 years ago, and now when I try I get this error:

Cannot parse line 1.
Cannot parse line 2.
Cannot parse line 3.
Cannot parse line 4.
Cannot parse line 5.
Cannot parse line 6.
Cannot parse line 7.
Cannot parse line 8.
Cannot parse line 9.
Cannot parse line 10.
Cannot parse line 11.
Cannot parse line 12.
Cannot parse line 13.
Cannot parse line 14.
Cannot parse line 15.
Cannot parse line 16.
Cannot parse line 17.
Cannot parse line 18.
Cannot parse line 19.
Cannot parse line 20.
Cannot parse line 21.
Cannot parse line 22.
Cannot parse line 23.
Cannot parse line 24.
Cannot parse line 25.

Imported tags from "I:\Mastermix\Film Set Take 1\cd1.txt" to 25 of 25 files.

Any ideas?

Thank you

I did search but because I can only search 3 letters or more the more query TEXT TAGS brought up 28 pages of results, so I did not look at everything :confused:

If you want to import data from a text file then the structure of data in the file must match the mask you enter in the Convert function.
e.g. if the text file has
Beatles;A Hard days night

then the mask for import looks like this:
%artist%;%title%

Hi

the text file reads thus:

  1. Seattle Symphony Orchestra - 2001 A Space Odyssey
  2. Madonna - Beautiful Stranger
  3. Seal - Kiss From A Rose
  4. Matt Monro - Born Free

etc

I used the format as shown in pic and gAttachment 5812 not found.et that error - I am sure this exactly how I used to do it :stuck_out_tongue:


If I try it with the data you supplied, then I get this preview:
"E:\xxx\yyy\69 Eyes\2004 - Sweet Nothing Play Hard\416 5 Conspiracy Theories _ Sweet Nothing Play Hard _ 001 _ Lost Boys.mp3" ->
track: 1
artist: Seattle Symphony Orchestra
title: 2001 A Space Odyssey

The mask I used spells like this:
%track%%artist%%title%

If you are not sure that the data complies with the mask, then try to get a unique separator between the fields like the underscore, so that
"1. Seattle Symphony Orchestra - 2001 A Space Odyssey "
becomes
"1_Seattle Symphony Orchestra_2001 A Space Odyssey"

in my case the export file ( .csv ) had a lot of blank lines at the end of the script.
Deleting those lines did the job.

About what job are you talking about?
Did you really get "Cannot parse line" messages for trailing blank lines?
