  1. Yes! I tried pause first and my tinkerings were unsuccessful, 'ping' seemed to be a popular alternative and worked well in this case. I chose a .bat file because I thought it would have been easier for others; I'm a big fan of Powershell but batch seems more widely used and I had planned to share whatever I could find even before I had started searching
  2. You're spot on, Jeff. Thanks for the question, I'll answer it as best as I can The ping is there so that the script will wait a couple of seconds before progressing to the next file; LibreOffice (or 'soffice.exe' while in headless mode) seems to need that pause. When it isn't in there, the batch stops at one file; and while I've had it in there, I've successfully processed 250+ html notes during one run of the script.
  3. No, Thank you. I feel I may have helped someone else down the line, I'm content Then you stumbled upon a third party app. There is never, repeat never, a charge from Evernote to export your data out from Evernote.I'm sorry, did I offend you? Did u miss the part when I said 'All the option that have been provided needed to pay a sum of money to export the amount of notes that I had'(I blame the keyboard ) I don't think I mentioned anywhere that they were options provided by Evernote.. I can't imagine why you think you offended me and no, I did not miss any part, thankyouverymuch. I am simply clarifying your post for you. If your post had been more explicit (IE, if you *had* mentioned you were talking about a third party option), it would not have needed clarification for others who are reading this thread. I can't imagine why you would object to that. Ohhhhh, you were helping. Shucks. Thanks Darl, you're a champ

  5. I've only ever visited these forums once, and that was when I was trying to export my data from Evernote to a format that I thought I could work with properly. All the options/suggestions that have been provided on this site and on others were third party apps/ programs and needed payment to export the amount of notes that I had (I had 250+). I ended up finding an article about LibreOffice (which I already had; its FOSS); it had the ability to convert to different formats from the windows command prompt, and with some extra code, it can all be done automatically in a batch from one directory. So I thought I would provide a summary of what I did here; as this was the first place I looked (it appeared first after a google search). 1. I exported the files as html files (notes separated, not one whole html file) from the Evernote desktop application 2. I created a .bat file (write batch code in a text file then save it with the .bat extension) (I can't attach .bat files on this forum, sorry) and ran the .bat file The .bat file I created, converted all the html files to .rtf (rich text format) and I've stored all the different notes on my home server that I sync with Bittorrent Sync. It's easily changed to convert it to other files, but please beware that the html file may not create the play well with the format you're conveting it too and you may need to edit the end result, so that it will look the way you want. But, as for just storing the information that you have saved in Evernote, saving my files as .rtf was perfect and this way is free and can be tailored to different needs. Below is the code of the .bat file I used, I had to implement a waiting period of 3 seconds, so that all the notes would be converted over in a batch automatically. I'm happy to answer any questions. HTH REM This displays the files being converted in the command window @ECHO REM This changes the working directory to the location of the original files cd "<location of original files>" REM You can change the 'rtf' to 'doc' 'docx' 'odf' .. whatever you like.. as long as LibreOffice can handle it REM Make sure leave the quotes "" when you replace the pointy brackets with YOUR directories that corresponds to the description. FOR %%f IN (*.html) DO "<location to soffice.exe>" -headless -convert-to rtf -outdir "<file output location>" "<location of original files>\%%f" & ping 1.1.1.1 -n 1 -w 5000 > nul
