how to format file path for coll object?

June 12, 2012 | 8:07 pm

Hello Forum

I am going crazy with the coll object.
Everytime i try to save it with a simple file path like
D:/sound/sound.wav;
i get errors saying "errors in text file in line 1"
when i put quotations it saves it but still
everytime when i double click the named coll object it is empty…
i am using max 6.05 with win 7

i have similar issues with the dict object.

You need to have the index in the coll, too. The data should look something like this:
1, D:/sound/sound.wav;
2, D:/sound/another_sound.wav;
3, "D:/sound/yet another sound.wav";

hello chris

that worked!
tried to port a patch from pd to max and in pd it didn’t need to have the index it rather confuesd the msgfile object.
thought the lines would be the index!
thx for your help!!

as an addition:
the text object accepted this format.
the lines work as index in this case.
