updating mp3 id3 tags from excel or csv files - any ideas?

Found 14th Jun 2008
OK folks....

I have manged to create some xls / csv files with all teh data required for id3 tag editing with help from folk on here.

I was then sure I could find some software that would allow me to edit id3 tags by importing the data from either a csv, text or excel file then auto update the tags on the mp3 file - but no :-(

I do use Tag and Rename and that works well if the id3 data is on either amazon or freedb, but I have some compilation albums that I want to get onto my ipod that I cannot get the tag data from the normal sources.

So i have got all the data into excel files and sorted but cannot find a solution to get the data into the tags.

I have googled various alternatives but can only find solution to export id3 data to excel not the other way around!

Any ideas folks

any advise much appreciated

Not sure if any products exist that can do this, but if you're willing to give some coding a try you could do it. You could write a small macro in Excel to read the files and apply the tags to them. It'd be very specific to the format you have the data in but might be worth a go....

Look at something like this ]http//ww…628 if you want to try it out, or search for "VBA id3" for some other similar sites...
