Make directory from the first letter of an artist.

I would like to sort my files to folders by the first letter of the artist.

I found this old thread, but "$left("%artist%",1)" isn't working for me.

This is what I did based on the other thread:
Z:\My Music<!--coloro:#FF0000-->$left("%artist%",1)\%artist%\%artist% - %year% - %comment% - %album%[ - %discnumber%]

Making a new post since that one was 12 years ago.

You can try it with

$left(%artist%,1)

without quotes.

That worked. Thanks!
