View Full Version : Importing text files

Hi Chris,

A question about importing txt files. I have photo galleries with detailed descriptions (product info) beside the source photos and I'd like to be able to create text files for each photo that would contain this product info and then import that text into my document.

I run batchs often so this would save me the trouble of having to go back and re-enter the product info by hand each time a batch is run. I would name the files after the source images like; BC1001.txt, CO3002.txt and so on and would then just pop them into the thumbs directory so each time I run a new batch the txt file would just be imported.

If this can be done, I'd also like to make sure that TN checks to make sure that such a txt file exists and if not just leave the space empty so as not to print out error messages. Any help would be appreciated as I'm new to TN and haven't quite got the different variables mastered. Thanks Mike
