Copy album artist field to artist


#1

Hi I want to copy the album artist field to the artist field

All of my attempts have failed except doing it all manually

I know it can be done the other way, but I'm looking to do it the way above

ALBUM ARTIST - ARTIST

please help it's driving me mad lol

Have a look at the FAQs:

Tried that in reverse

Action type: format value
Field: ARTIST
format string: %albumartist%

But when I did it nothing seemed to happen just said 0 files renamed

in your orginal post you say

there is a difference between ALBUMARTIST and ALBUM ARTIST.
So please check for one of these files the extended tags and see if you have field called
ALBUMARTIST
or
ALBUM ARTIST.
If the latter is the case, you would have to use %album artist% as format string.
