You just need to create a plain-text list of isbns in notepad or word* (source file must saved as a “plain text file”)
Remember, you can export data from GOBI folders or notification eslips, by marking all records and saving to file (keep tab-delineated default). I open with excel, but change the isbn column (format cell…) to numbers w/zero decimal places, then copy & paste isbns to a plain text file.You can also ask vendors to send you an isbn list from their print or e catalogues.
Will be e-mailed to you as an excel file. Fields include:
* In WORD, click Save As and use drop-down menu to choose Plain Text (.txt). A file conversion box will appear, click the "insert line break" box and use the drop-down to change "end lines with" to LR only.
