Importing Song List to Android

When using an Android device as a stand-alone unit, you can load the song list with a micro SD card or USB stick with an adapter if the tablet requires. You can also email or host the file as well. The file must be named “cavsbook.txt” and follow the following format.

FORMAT:

The required format of the song list that can be imported is as follows:
The first field is the index number followed by the pipe "|" sign.
The pipe "|" sign is inserted by typing Shift-\.
The second field is the title followed by another pipe "|" sign.
The third field is the artist name followed by Enter for the next line.
When saving the song list as a text (txt) file, be sure to select UTF-8 as the Encoding format.
There are no lines in between entries.

EXAMPLE:

00001|AIN'T NOBODY'S BUSINESS|HANK WILLIAMS JR.
00002|COUNTRY CLUB|TRAVIS TRITT
00003|DANCY'S DREAM|RESTLESS HEART
00004|DRINKING CHAMPAGNE|GEORGE STRAIT
00005|DUMAS WALKER|KENTUCKY HEADHUNTERS, THE
00006|FOURTEEN MINUTES OLD|DOUG STONE
00007|GOOD TIMES|DAN SEALS
00008|HARD ROCK BOTTOM OF YOUR HEART|RANDY TRAVIS

Once the file is ready or has already been copied to the device we need to place it in the correct directory. The standard location is the “Downloads” Folder in the internal storage on the device. Depending on the operating system the location might be different. To determine the correct location if the default does not work, you can check it inside the application. With the app open tap on “Settings” and then “Update List from File”, a message will appear on the screen showing you the correct file path.

Once it has been copied open the CAVSRS app and go to “Settings”>”Update List from File” and it will load the list if it was placed in the correct directory and formatted properly.
