brain dead at the moment...

I am trying to compare games within a family to a spreadsheet list that I have. Is there any easy way to just get all of the names of the games listed with a family?

I'm not sure, but I think the XML API will get you there, and your spreadsheet program should be able to handle the XML.

Sorry that I wasn't clear. I'm at the family. Say bingo family...

I just want an easy way to get the names of the games listed.

I can swipe list & put in excel, or simple text editor and then fool around. All in all a pain.
