Print a Album List
« on: November 20, 2010, 03:32:23 pm »

Is there a way to export only the list of albums, not an entire tracklist, as a report?

I want to print up a new album list.

thanks!

You can create a smartlist that excludes duplicates of Album Artist (auto) & Album. Here is a smartlist rule that should work:
[Media Type]=[Audio] ~nodup=[Album Artist /(auto/)],[Album]

The list will then show only one track from each album. You can set the smartlist to show only the columns that you want to print. For example: Album Artist (auto), Date, Album, and perhaps the Filename (path) column if the location is important.

MC has a print command, but you will have better control of the layout if you paste the contents of the list to Excel or some other spreadsheet or word processor. (select all files in the list > copy > change to the other program > paste)

EDIT

I have used this rule:
[Complete Album]=1 [Media Type]=[Audio] [Disc #]=<=1 ~nodup=[Album Artist /(auto/)],[Album] ~sort=[Album Artist (auto)],[Date],[Album]

It limits the results to complete albums, excludes the disc numbers 2 or bigger, and sorts the resulting list.

Thanks Alex B, I was just trying to figure out both these things, show complete/incomplete albums and how to print a list.
