Good afternoon, I wonder if somebody of you may give help about this question: if I ask discogs to export my collection they give me an Excel file which looks this way:

Catalog#,Artist,Title,Label,Format,Rating,Released,release_id,CollectionFolder,Date Added,Collection Media Condition,Collection Sleeve Condition,Collection Notes

that, randomly chosen will produce this result:

SPIN055,Lycus,Tempest,20 Buck Spin,"LP, Album",,2013,4808960,Uncategorized,2015-11-14 08:38:25,,,

Now, imagine in a future discogs crashes and burns, to avoid losing all the traces I'd like to upload my whole collection on the Archive too without being forced to add them all each by each, and this is possible only if I can use this excel file.
Is there a way to do it?

Many thanks in advance

Well, there is no way that the discogs release_id is the same as the MA one, if only for the fact that MA does not deem a version "different" the way discogs does.
Anyway, good point for discogs for having an Excel export. I dream to have the same in MA (CSV would be perfectly fine)...
