Convert Title Field

Not sure how I did it but below is an example of what I have in the following fields:-

Artist : The Beatles
Title : The Beatles - Yesterday
Filename: The Beatles - The Beatles - Yesterday

So, I want to edit the Title to remove all characters prior to and including " - ". Then I can recreate the filename. Looked at various ways but as I have not used this convert system for years I cannot work it out.

Can anyone help.

Typical - as soon as I posted this message I worked out a way to do it.

  1. I did a Tag to Filename : $num(%track%,3). %title%
    Which gave me "001. The Beatles - Yesterday"

2, Did a Filename - Tag : %track%. %artist% - %title%

Problem solved. As there was 3000 files it was important to get them changed.

You could use
Convert>Tag-Filename with
Format string: %title%
and then reimport the data with
Mask: %artist% - %title%

Or you could use Convert>filename-filename
Mask over old name: %1 - %2 - %3
Mask over new name: %2 - %3

And then import the data with Convert>Filename-Tag as described above.

Thank you for getting back so quickly. Always the way. Ask for help then work it out. Both of our answers were basically the same so...... Just my brain not working properly.
