replace the path with yours.
list.txt is the out file, include a path as desired

Typically there would less than 15 books displayed in the list from a library approaching 4000, the selection being based on the #status custom column.

Currently I
  1. create a Temporary library using the structure from my Main library
  2. move the displayed books (#status:"=72 finalCheck") from my Main Library to the Temporary library,
  3. close Calibre
  4. process everything in the Temporary library via a powershell script
  5. start Calibre
  6. update the #status column for all the books in the Temporary library to '85 Final'
  7. move all the books in the Temporary library to the Main library
  8. remove the Temporary library, from Calibre and Windows

The list would obviate the need for the Temporary library - I would use it drive the powershell script and update the book files in-situ - ie in the Main library.

Thanks BR
