I am trying to use the Export function of L/R Transporter to create a file that I can then use in Excel. I have this working perfectly with regular L/R metadata fields but I want to include some Custom Fields that I have created with the L/R Search Replace plugin. Does anyone know how I would go about doing that?

There's nothing in Search & Replace to stop another plugin reading those fields, so the question is really about whether LrTransporter looks for any custom fields.

I found this info in the Transporter plugin but I do not know what the plugin ID and the field IDs are for the Custom Fields in L/R Search Replace?

Metadata from 3rd party plugins​

You can access the metadata fields of 3rd party applications by using the 'pluginField' token and passing in the plugin's ID and the field ID. You should contact the plugin's vendor for this information.
{pluginField[info.regex.lightroom.export.smugmug2,url]}

I think they should be of the format:

{pluginField[uk.co.beardsworth.findreplace,custom07]}

Above works for me (comma separating the field name from the plugin name).
Below does not work

{pluginField[uk.co.beardsworth.findreplace.custom07]}

Yes you are correct, thanks much appreciated :)

Thanks, my period separators are how LR identifies custom fields. While I don't use LrTransporter, that comma is clearly important for how it handles custom fields.
