Regex help needed

What I would like is to have in the drop down of the Tag - Filename is a string that would allow me to move my files. IE:
d:\musicWork\Boston - 1978 - Don't Look Back - 01 - Don't Look Back.mp3
d:\Music\B\Boston\Boston - 1978 - Don't Look Back (CBR 192)Rock\Boston - 1978 - Don't Look Back - 01 - Don't Look Back.mp3

What I have now is: d:\music\%artist% - %year% - %album% (%_vbr% %_bitrate%)%genre%\%artist% - %year% - %album% - $num(%track%,2) - %title%

Now I can do everything myself except the regex code for finding out the first letter of the band so that I can move it directly to D:\music\B\


I think you do not need a regular expression to isolate the first letter of a tagfield, just use $left(x,n) function with n=1 to get the first character from the left side out of the tagfield string.


Yes that worked perfectly. I now use this:

d:\music$left(%artist%,1)\%artist% - %year% - %album%\%artist% - %year% - %album% - $num(%track%,2) - %title%

and it comes out just what I need. Thx for the fast reply.
