Remove part of a field and save it to another field?


#1

Hello. I have some files that contain both the artist and song title in one field (the title field) with space-forwardSlash-space in between (artist / song title). I'm wondering if there is a way to use an action to cut everything before the forward slash, and paste it into the artist field. If not a cut-and-paste then at least a copy?

From TITLE = "artist / title" to ARTIST = "artist", to TITLE = "title".
Copy TITLE to ARTIST, remove title part from ARTIST, remove artist part from TITLE.
