Format value not working

I have 2 fields that need to have the same information, example "Label" and "Publisher". The reason for this is:

  1. I use Traktor, which uses the "Publisher" field.
  2. I use a few other programs which look for the "Label" field.

So, I've used foobar to tag a few hundred tracks which have data in the "Label" field, and I've also used mp3tag for hundreds of others which have data in the "Publisher" field. I'm trying to copy from "Label" to "Publisher" and vice versa so that all my music have the same data in both fields.

I created a Format value action with the field as "LABEL" and the format string as "%publisher%", but after running it, it only removes the text from the field instead of copying it to the other. I also would like to move all "Style" fields to the "Genre" field. I hope this makes sense and appreciate your help.

This is not that special what you have asked for, but you can learn from it:

Example for "Replace" tag field data.

Begin Actionsgroup 'DISCID' same as 'CDDBID'

Action #1
Actiontype 2: Replace
Field: DISCID
Original: ÷
Replace with:

[_] only as whole word [_] case sensitive comparison

Action #2
Actiontype 2: Replace
Field: CDDBID
Original: ÷
Replace with:

[_] only as whole word [_] case sensitive comparison

Action #3
Actiontype 5: Format tag field
Field: CDDBID
Formatstring: $if($grtr(%DISCID%,),%DISCID%,%CDDBID%)

Action #4
Actiontype 5: Format tag field
Field: DISCID
Formatstring: $if($grtr(%CDDBID%,),%CDDBID%,%DISCID%)

Action #5
Actiontype 1: Case conversion
Field: DISCID
Case conversion: UPPER CASE
Word begins after:

Action #6
Actiontype 1: Case conversion
Field: CDDBID
Case conversion: UPPER CASE
Word begins after:

Note: Replace one special character ÷ with one space character.
End Actionsgroup 'DISCID' same as 'CDDBID' (6 Actions)

Example for "Move" tag field data.

Begin Actionsgroup 'DISCID' move to 'CDDBID'

Action #1
Actiontype 5: Format tag field
Field: CDDBID
Formatstring: %DISCID%

Action #2
Actiontype 5: Format tag field
Field: DISCID
Formatstring: %dummy%

End Actionsgroup 'DISCID' move to 'CDDBID' (2 Actions)
