How to append Catalog Number field to the end of the Album field

I often find that two or more different releases with the same Title will merge into one folder.

Title xxxx CD1
Title xxxx CD2
Title xxxx CD3

all end up in the Album Folder as Title xxxx once processed by iTunes or MusicBee

What I'd like is a way for the Catalog Number to be appended to the Album Title to keep them separate


Title xxxx CD1
Title xxxx CD2


Title xxxx [Catalog Number A1]
Title xxxx [Catalog Number A2]

Which would be:
Format string: %album% '['%catalognumber%']'

Well hell, that's simple! I feel an idiot as I was using the replace command, instead of just the format!

many thanks, the issue is resolved.
