Are Table (Artist, Album, ...) ID's exposed for export

Post by Lowlander » Mon Jan 27, 2014 4:01 pm

I'm trying to export a list of Artist include the database ID of the Artist. I'm also planning this for other tables. Is this available or is it only available for the Songs table?

I know that you want someone who really knows what they are talking about :) but you got me.
I know that you know that the wiki shows ID as being exposed for each of the Artist, album etc. Is this what you are talking about?
I haven't tried it but if they aren't really available isn't there a way to sql query the tables themselves. It should be there? Just a (probably not useful) thought
Where's the db and ini stored

I'm just playing around with the export script for now and am looking for the ArtistID and AlbumID (and maybe some others). This means I'm using itm.ArtistName instead of direct SQL.

You could check out my "Just List Albums" and "Just List Artists" scripts - these are reports that output that sort of information.
Download my scripts at my own MediaMonkey fansite.
All the code for my website and scripts is safely backed up immediately and for free using Dropbox.
