Chanching Year


#1

Hi All,
My name is Han Krol and living in The Netherlands. I discoverd this programm some 3 weeks ago and it is very good. Before that i did all my tagging by hand.

But I need your help. My Mp.3 files are tagged on the normal way. Mostly simple singel Mp.3's . But my Mp.3 files are different. Now it is Year_track no - Artist - Title. Say: 1970_001 - Amsterdam - Lucy, Lucy .

But I need a 2 digit YEAR. Most off my Mp.3's got a 2 digit file names. Like I said, did mostly by hand before I discover this progr.

The above example must be this way:

70_001 - Amsterdam - Lucy, Lucy .

How do I get this too work in Mp3Tag?

If you really only want to modify the filename and have not yet filled the fields, then use
Convert>Filename-Filename.
Enter as source
19%1
and as target pattern
%1
Much wiser would be to use the existing information and fill the tags and then use
Convert>Tag-Filename
Enter as pattern:
$right(%year%)_$num(%track%,2) - %artist% - %title%

Thank You very much for Your answer.
I try the last string, but it doesn't work. I get:

_01 - Amsterdam - Lucy, Lucy

And not 70_01 . What is wrong?

Ups, sorry:
$right(%year%,2) would be correct
