Copying Composer column

I keep my music files in 3 codecs FLAC ALAC and LAME.
Is it possible to copy a column Composer data (or any other column of data) from an album of the FLAC copy and place it into the ALAC or LAME copy?
Or do I have to manually re enter it for each track again?
Or would this require multiple instances of mp3tag to be running at once?
Hopefully Ive described what I'm trying to do properly

You can copy the whole tag and even the whole tags of a set of files to another set of files.
The order of the source would be kept.
So, if these files are really copies, then
select all the source files
Use the function Copy tag
Select the target files (which should be the same number and in the same order as the source files)
and paste the tags.

The tag panel is usually a good way to set just a single field for a number of files.
Or, if all the contents is different but only a single field should be copied, then the only way around it would be an export script that also includes the filename.

Wow... Thankyou so looks like that works.. amazing.. :slightly_smiling_face:

[Note: I ask out of curiosity only; I use LAME all the time, and am always interested learning more]
I thought LAME was an encoder, used to create MP3 files from other formats. And while I realize that technically that's what a codec is, I didn't think it was a storage format.
