Just as an update, here is an easy way to do this, instead of messing about with other programs or cmd.
Create a new folder called test
open your list in excel - see image
Alt+F11 to open up the VBA editor.
Select insert Module - In the box add this code
For N = 1 To Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row
Open "C:\temp\" & Cells(N, 1) & ".txt" For Output As #1
switch back to sheet, Alt+F11 (or close editor)
Click on view then macros, and run it
Go to that test folder you created, and you will see its full of txt files (all named from each cell ready for you to add to calibre
Don't ask me about the code, as I just edited some I found, (as you do) and don't fully understand it.
one tip, just use alphanumeric . and - are ok, but dont have a ":" in the text
Oh - while I'm here:
This is probably relevent to anyone coming here from a search
Create File list from folder structure ie Text list of Folders
1. run cmd
2. cd to the folder you want the list of (Type CD then space then the folder, for example "CD C:\Storage\BFG\Allthefiles\
3. paste this no quotes "dir /b /s > c:\filelist.txt" then enter
4. list is in c:\filelist.txt
remove the /s if you don't want subdirectories
(PS - send me the txt list if you want and I'll do it for you, then you will only have to do new purchases as you get them)
