Hi all,

I love the flexibility of ComicRack. I am a huge fan of creating custom reading lists to enjoy the chronological history of different characters. I am wondering if it is possible to import an excel file of comic names, issue number, volume number into a cbl file? This would save a ton of time while constructing huge lists. Thanks in advance.

I definitely second this.
There are some big lists I want to make up & this would help immensely.

It is possible. You basically export the excel file as a txt file (comma separated, whatever), then manipulate it with a text editor. I've played with it in notepad++ and created a few. I planned on writing up how to do it, but then work and school got crazy so I'd almost have to start from square one.

Remember, .cbl files are just text files.
