Title: Export as CSV TSV
Post by Mening on Oct 13th, 2010, 8:51am

I tried the 'create tab-delim text export' http://homepage.mac.com/mwra/FileSharing1.html in many ways but it doesn't work with tbx 5.6.0  :( .  Any suggestions? Thanks.

1) I downloaded the file you mentioned
2) I set the default HTML export template to "item.txt". (Note: the document erroneously tells you to set the text export template, but we're using HTMLView here so it's the HTML export template you want.
3) I opened HTML View, and saw what I expected.

Some fresh demos are coming shortly, and these will help. But I think you'll find the old version works fine, too.

That's a very old file. I've updated it in v5.6.0 and it should work with v4.6.0+. The file now uses The file can be downloaded from the same URL as before.

BTW, those old .Mac pages die on a month or so (Apple are pulling the old 'homepages' URLs) so grab the file now.  It'll doubtless turn up elsewhere as a link but I'm not sure where yet.

[Later - Mark B's comments inter alia are true, but I suggest dumping the old version of the TBX and using the new one I just uploaded.]

Yeah! What a timely update!

I just came to the forum to get an answer to this very question.
Now up and running!

Thanks, Mark.
