Years and dates


#1

Somewhere along the line (I think from importing mp3s into Traktor) my Year tags have changed format.

I.E

They are now:

1966-01-01

I'd like to format them to just leave the year

1966

Struggling with working this out. Could anyone give me some pointers?

Many thanks

Steve

You could create an action of the type "Replace with regular expression" for YEAR.
Enter as search string:
^(\d\d\d\d)-
That's not right, that deletes only a single hyphen (I was to quick) - use the following expression:

^(\d\d\d\d)-.*
Enter as replace string:
$1

Many Thanks!

Is this page http://help.mp3tag.de/main_tags.html updated? I can't find DATE for example, but it's listed in mp3tag. Also, ReleaseDate listed in the web page is not listed in mp3tag. I'm very confused which tag to edit for storing the date in the format yyyy-mm-dd.
