Anyone ever figure out how to edit MP3 tags in Excel and then write it back to the MP3 file?

Yes. See this post. The links there are no longer good. However, I still have the ocx on my machine. Download from the link below. If you need help, reply with your questions. The control is very easy to use. There is also code on the net to edit tags without the control but it's a toothache.

Thanks. I haven't looked at this but could it be used to do mass updates? Say if I list my mp3 files, typed in genre, etc, could I just create a macro that would use this ocx to update all of the tags?

If you can post an example of what you intend on doing with your tags, I'll come up with an example using the control. Are you adding, deleting, or just changing the values of existing tags?

Edit: I was being bad... :)

thanks, right-Click. I'm going to play with it myself first (as soon as I have time) and post my results.

Basically, I want to list out the tags to my MP3s in a worksheet. Then i want to edit those tags and then write the tags back to the file. Fairly straight forward.

This sounds like a quality little gizmo

Right_Click - have you got anything lying about where you have used this control in your code? If so, could you post it here, or e-mail me with it? patrick.muldoon@comet.co.uk

I've got loads and loads of mp3s with dodgy tags, and this seems like a quality way to sort it out - when I can make the time to actually do it.

Nice one

Patrick
