Read ID3-Tags from MP3 Files

This code do a recursive search from the start directory for MP3-files. For each file, it extract the ID3-tag which contain information about title, artist, year of release, genre, album, etc., and put the data in a new document. The form for the document (called MP3) contain the following fields:
Title, Artist, Album, Year, Genre, Comment, Location : Text Created : Date, compute when composed using the formula @Now

Change the content of the variable pathName$ to the top directory for your MP3 files.

Enjoy!


The agent contain the following:
