Export Broken?
« on: October 24, 2009, 12:46:15 pm »
I'm having some difficulties with list creation when exporting. I'm using a script I've used before to print a list of movie with: number, original title, and mediatype. For some reason it is no longer printing out the mediatype, have the numbers changed in values options? I hadn't updated for awhile, can't remember what version I was on when it last worked.

A few of the other values aren't working either, when I do export 'Sample" there are alot of blanks or zeros.

On a related note, can we have more options in Filter, say by mediatype.  I'm trying to print seperate lists for each mediatype.

Still love the program, had taken a break from cataloging my movies and am starting to get caughtup again, many great new features since my last upgrade.

Keep up the fantastic work!

Export is not broken, it changed. It is recommended to use text constants now instead of numbers. Numbers still work, but have a bit different values...
To convert your templates into the new format you can use this converter: http://www.videodb.info/bin/tplconvert.zip

You can use all available filters including Advanced search.

Cool!   :)  Didn't realize advanced search worked for that too.  I got everything straightened out.

Thanks

By the way, where are the new instructions for the templates?

I never find time for this. Just take a look at Sample.ptm which export all possible fields.

Just waiting for a user to document what they have found out ;)

While it is obviously true that nostra may be able to write it faster than a user. It is also a fact there is only 1 nostra but lots of users so the more that can be done by users the better overall for the project.

As a result, it will be appreciated by others if you document what ever you find by trial & error. That way others can add to it and nostra may even edit it.

Where is this?  I can find no file called sample.ptm anywhere on my computer.
