copying a list of songs to make a list in word

  flobby 10:34 10 Dec 2010

I need to copy a list of songs aswell as books from my computer, to make a list which I can print out.
When I select them all and copy I am copying the songs and books not the list.
Thanks in advance
Cheers, flobby

More information needed. What format is the list in? What program is the existing list in?

......that you are trying to print data from a website?

If so, you may have to do it piecemeal.

1) I would try wiping the cursor across the bit you need, to highlight it.

2) Then key Control+C to copy the highlighted bit.
3) Next on a new document of Word or Wordpad key Control+V to paste that section.

Repeat back to 1 to highlight the next selection.
2) and 3)
Add the next clip to the Word Document.

All this is fairly clumsy, but it works for me if I am in difficulties.

Once you have what you want all in the Word doc, you can play with the formatting or convert to a table for sorting.

If it as Diemmess suggests, when you go into Word, if you select Edit, Paste Special, Unformatted Text it will get rid of all of the formatting crud used on the website.

Assuming this is a list of songs in a / several folders on your drive then you need directory printer (free) click here

The list is the actual songs and books, not a word list so copying it is actually copying the songs and books.
The list is shown in documents but it is still the programmes. How do I change it to word???

Have both your screen list and a new doc in Word open at the same time, then copy and paste the bits you want into the Word doc.

Notice Fruit Bat /\0/\'s point about Directory printer. This could help finishing the Word doc.
