Masstagger: syntax to reduce date field

Hi there.

Could someone please let me know what syntax I could use in Masstagger to reduce date field to four-digit year?

I know Tag Sanitizer does that, but this component has deleted more tags in my files than I specify, so I've gotten along better with Masstagger itself.

Thanks in advance.

Don't think that is related to the thread topic? I'm assuming it isn't:

File properties, highlight the fields in question (you can highlight several), right-click, "Capitalize".
It will make all the stupid mistakes (like capitalizing A and The and Roman Numeral Iii), but you cannot have it all without more work ... which you can often let https://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_musicbrainz do for you.

You don't need masstagger. Select files, Ctrl-Enter for properties, select the fields you want to have capitalized, and do it.

Here is a MassTagger preset function that decapitalizes a list of common 3-letter and shorter words and makes some exceptions. Minimal manual fixup is required. It is not possible to perfectly automate the process because phrasal verbs need to be understood in context. It processes artist, title and album, but you can add more fields at the start and end. Use the "Import from file" button to load the preset.
