Looking for copy list plug-in

I am looking for a plug-in which copies the information in either the playlist or libray. I want to put the columns of information into an XCEL file to be able to print out the collection. Does anyone know of such a beast???

Activewinamp can do this but would require a bit of work. The easiest option is to write to a .csv file, which can be opened with excel, but you can write to a .xls file quite easily too using activex and getobject("excel.application") etc.

eg make a file called 'playlist_Write files to csv.vbs' with the contents:

Const ForReading = 1, ForWriting = 2, ForAppending = 8
filename = "c:\test.csv"
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set MyFile = fso.OpenTextFile(filename, ForWriting, True)
for each song in playlist
MyFile.WriteLine(song.artist + "," + song.album + "," + song.title)

The problem would be commas, you would have to escape them out etc. Using excel might be easier as you can write directly into the cells.

Otherwise you can write a html file fairly easily: eg

You can change the code to write out the contents of the media library with:

for each song in medialibrary
