Is it possible to export a list of elements that I have based on the sets I have recorded as Owned on Brickset.com?

    No - don't think so. As far as I'm aware, only Peeron offers this functionality.

    Ah, thanks Dr D. I recalling seeing the link on the My Sets page now "Send your set list to Peeron to get an inventory of parts you own."

    Not working for me. I just get this error back from Peeron...

    What I do with bricklink is:

    1) go to Catalog tab
    2) under that, go to Download tab
    3) click the Inventory radio button on the far right, and enter the Set number (use the full number with the dash and following digit)
    4) click Download to get a text file, which you can open as an Excel file.

    One thing to note, the part colors are designated by number, not name, but you can get a list of colors by number in name from the middle of the section of the Download page.

    Hi DB, but can I get a meta inventory for all the sets I own combined that way?

    Not that I know of. I think this only works at the set level. What I've been doing is importing the files into a database (ACL) with the Colors file. I merged the Colors table to the master data table, and append the Set data as I download more set files. Yeah, it's a little labor intensive compared to getting a meta inventory, but it works for now.

    It's a crying shame that Peeron has been left to drift....up until a couple of years ago the set inventories were up to date, and all you had to do was keep your list of sets up to date on the site and you'd have a full list of all your elements, searchable by colour etc.. You can even input your loose pieces into the system....

    You guys should all check out http://www.basebrick.com

    It's like Peeron, but uses bricklink's inventories which I find much more accurate anyway. You can catalog all your sets and pieces and export your parts lists to text files and things. It's VERY nifty!
