Import list to sheet

Maybe this is not how it was intended to be used, but I would like to be able to take a text document that is a list of ISBN numbers and import it into a sheet. What I hope it will do is create a new record for each ISBN number listed. If this is possible, then I’m one step closer to using DTP as my book/library inventory. I think with a little scripting (and pulling info from Amazon) DTP could rival “Booxter” and “Delicious” as a personal inventory system. If someone has done this already, I would love to look at the Applescripts to query Amazon (I think it is through SOAP or something like that).


If the list of ISBN numbers is separated by line feeds/carriage returns, then change the extension to “.tab” and import the file. DT Pro should then create a sheet and one record for every number.
