Ver 005 above should fix that, I think.
 
How difficult would it be to change the output of the due script, so that it breaks the items up as follows:

Due in the coming week

Less than x months Overdue

More than x months Overdue

Maybe this isn't relevant to a lot of people, but at least for me, the most immediately overdue items tend to be the most important ones for me to see. If a task is pretty stale, I may not feel I can delete it, but if it has sat for a long time it also may not be as urgently overdue as some of the newer tasks in the overdue list.

As things are presently constituted, if you have a rather long list of overdue items, as I am not so proud to say that I do, the most recent overdue items sort to the bottom of the list. If the list is long enough <g>, they aren't even visible on my screen, because the list runs off of it.

That being said, within a overdue in the last x month view, I wouldn't mind seeing the most overdue item first (as things are now).

I know that at a certain point, if one want lots of sorting and filtering options, one may as well just open up OF.

But between this script, hazel, dropbox, and simplenote, I think I may have a system that allows me to view my tasks other places (like on my android phone). So having a little more control over the organization would be helpful.

Yes, I think it has fixed it.

Spoke too soon. Added a few items, and Sun Jan is back.

Looks like this may happen when it is trying to pull out tasks that are nested down a couple of levels.

I added a project using Curt Clifton's Populate Template AS. It's a relatively involved one. Then I added due dates to a couple of items. Now in my text file, I see two iterations of the project header is the "Due" section, but neither of the tasks are listed. Instead, it looks like this:

Code:
     ProjectName:
*15:00
Sun Jan
FWIW, 15:00 is the default time I've set for due date reminders.

Can't reproduce that problem here with deeply nested tasks. (The Sqlite tables are flat, as it happens)

Any unusual characters in the text of these actions: end of line breaks (linefeeds) for example, or pipe characters "|" ? Anything else unusual ?

There's a colon. There's also a comma. Otherwise, it's just letters.

The hierarchy is as follows:

Project Name
Phase 1: Admin
Make Client File: Project Name


In the example above, "Make Client File: Project Name" is not getting pulled out into the text file.
 
If you'd like to send me an OPML version of that project (or a similar one which is not getting through) , I'll try to take a look at it over the weekend.

(When you use that older OPML script, just select the top-level node of the outline you want to export - the sub-tree will be exported with it)
 
Will the OPML script work with 10.6.8? Or does it use the newer version of Python?
 
Hi there

I have updated the start date script to order it by start date, not due date. This was giving me a strange looking list with the dates all out of order.

The change is on line 34:
from
ORDER BY t.effectiveDateDue, f.name, p.name, c.name
to
ORDER BY t.effectiveDateToStart, f.name, p.name, c.name
