How do I transfer my CompuHost Songlist into FastTracks V2 SongBook Creator for printing?

Simply utilize CompuHost's "Export SongList" feature and FastTracks V2's "Import" feature!

Both applications use a "CSV File", commonly referred to as an "EXPORT" file to communicate data between themselves. By using the "Export SongList" feature in CompuHost, you create the "Export File" within CompuHost, and use FastTracks V2's "Import" feature to "read" the Export File in.

To do so....

To create the EXPORT File within CompuHost...

  • Launch CompuHost

  • Click "SongList | Export SongList" from CompuHost's Main Menu.

  • Provide a name and folder location for the export file to be generated

    IMPORTANT! Be sure to remember the file name and location selected above so you may easily locate and transfer the file in the next step.

  • Click "OK"

CompuHost will commence creating the "Export File" utilizing the filename and folder location you've provided.

 

 

Now, to IMPORT the file into FastTracks V2 SongBook Creator...

 

  • Launch FastTracks V2 SongBook Creator

  • Click "Start"

  • Open an existing SongBook or Create a New/Empty SongBook.

  • Once the SongBook is open within FastTracks V2, click the "Import CSV File into SongBook" button found on FastTracks V2's button bar. (Sixth button from the left).

  • Locate the "Export File" created from within CompuHost (instructions above).

  • Click "Open"

  • FastTracks V2 will analize the "Export File" for potential conflicts. this will insure that existing listings are not duplicated within the SongBook.

  • Click "Import Listings"

That's It! FastTracks V2 will commence creating/updating your SongBook!
