Solved Parse Music.txt file. Replace W/ ;

March 6, 2015 at 20:54:14
Specs: Windows 8, i5/6gig
need to build a ";" delimited .txt file of music folder from a batch pgm. I have a HDD with a terabyte of music, un-categorized. Want to create separate fields for each <DIR>, date of creation, song title, size etc... separated by semi-colons.

It is to be sucked into a MS Database where it will be further filtered.

✔ Best Answer
Can't help with database but while you are waiting, this little batch file (ListFiles.bat) can be handy for data collection:

:: Place this in any folder and double click it. The "fileListing.txt"
:: text file that is produced there will list all folder and file names.
:: It will show all file extensions (whether visible or not).
:: The switch /b (bare) limits the amount of information displayed.
dir *.* /b >>fileListing.txt

Sorry if it's too Simple Simon - you may laugh if you wish!
