Remove from title's "(YEAR)" and put it to the year field


#1

Hi

I have a bunch of files that are named like this:

TRACK - ARTIST - TITLE

Within the title is the year eg:
07 - jerry goldsmith - the list of adrian messenger (1963)

I want to remove the year from the title & put it to the year field.

I've been experimenting with a few actions ways, but can't seem to get it.

Would love some help.
Thanks

Looks a lot like a filename to me. That is not the title.
Unfortunately, you do not tell us which actions you tried in vain.

I would go at it like this:
create an action of the type "Import tag-field (Guess value)" for %title%
Guessing pattern: %title% (%year%)

If it is still the filename that we are talking about, use the function Convert>Filename-Tag
String: %track% - %artist% - %title% (%year%)
