Is there any way in Slimserver to generate a list of recordings included in the Slimserver database? I was thinking of a plain text file, but others out there might be interested in generating html or database files for use with Excel, etc. Doesn't Slimserver use some sort of database file? Is it compatible with Excel, etc.?

Thanks

Chris

Of course it does. And there are ODBC drivers for it:

These will allow you to access the DB with any application that can handle
ODBC (eg. Excel).

I generated a great report using Media Monkey...

http://www.mediamonkey.com/

I exported to Excel, deleted the track name and number, and then used an Excel function... Data/Filter/Advanced Filter/Unique Records Only ...

The result: I got a great list of my FLAC catalog with Artist/Album/Genre

My wife is very intimidated by my music collection (2.1K cd's) and this nice clean report has been a great help to her.

enjoy!

I do much the same thing as Hal, only I manipulate the output from Media Monkey using pivot tables. This way, I can create output reports along any of the dimensions (genre, track, etc) just by changing the page fields.
