Sorry to ask again but what I read doesn't work.
I need to COPY (and retain) the ARTIST tag value so it also appears in the ALBUM ARTIST tag.
According to another help topic, I do this:
Action type: Format value
Formatstring: %album artist%
When I do that, the ARTIST tag value disappears and nothing enters the ALBUM ARTIST filed. Presumably I don't understand the 2 instructions above.
I know to open an action type of FORMAT VALUE. I can see FIELD and FORMATSTRING. If I type AR into the top FIELD, ARTIST appears automatically (with no % signs). I then type %ALBUM ARTIST% (and I also tried %ALBUMARTIST%) in the bottom Formatstring field. When I click OK, the ARTIST field empties and nothing appears in the ALBUM ARTIST field. If I repeat this but surround ARTIST with % signs, it makes no difference to the result.
Please, what am I doing wrong?
