Limit character count in YEAR field?


#1

Hi all,

I'm wondering if i can/how to limit the number of characters in the [year] field to 4.
I have quite a few albums with longer date entries and wish to trim them all down in one go.

Any help appreciated.

if the 4 digits for the year are the digits at the front, then create an action of the type
format tag-field
for the tag YEAR
and enter as format string
$left(%year%,4)

EXCELLENT! Thanks very much!
Worked exactly as desired.
