I just recently discovered OpenLP, and I must say that the first impression is really good!
I would like to import a Bible into OpenLP through CSV files. I am very famailiar with Microsoft Excel, and was hoping not having to install any extra programs on my computer to achieve thos. I've been searching around, but I have not been able to find out anywhere how to set up the two CSV files. I somewhere in the manual found a link to a page showing the syntax, but the link took me to a page that doesn't exist.
So: how are the two CSV supposed to be set up?
Have you tried following the instructions at http://manual.openlp.org/bibles.html#import-bibles? Are you getting a particular error message?
Thanks for your reply.
Your link works fine, but that's not the problem. The link I refer to might have been in the wiki - I don't remember...
However, my problem is figuring out how the CSV files should be set up! What information should each of the CSV files contain, and in what order?
I understand that in a previous version of OpenLP, Bible import from CSV was from one CSV file only, and somewhere I found information on what order the CSV file was to be set up (book, chapter,verse,text). But in version 2 OpenLP asks for two CSV files, and I am looking for how these files should be set up...
Look at http://www.cowjam.co.uk/openlp/Bible_convertor.php. This will generate the files you need from an XML file such as the ones from OpenSong. The verses file contains something like "b, c, v, t" where b is the number of the book, c is the chapter, v is the verse, and t is the text of the verse. The books file contains "b, tt, n" where b is the number of the book, tt is the number of the testament (old or new), and n is the name of the book. I was able to import the converted files into OpenLP but I had to manually confirm the name of each book.
They're generated from the doc strings in the code, so might be a little technical, but it sounds like your clued up!
OpenLP doesn't come with the NASB, we only distribute Bibles we have the rights to. You might have found it on the OpenSong site.
(not AMP Classic)?
Do you still need this?
