Title: Changing the date tag format on a group of Shows.
Post by: DeadTrader on 2020-04-24 20:27:50
Novice here with what I hope is a simple question. I received a fully tagged collection of Jerry Garcia shows. But the Date format is different from what I use.
All the Jerry shows are mm/dd/yyyy
I want them to be yyyy-mm-dd
Is there a simple method using the properties box to do this?

Use Automatically fill values.

Source: other.
$substr(%date%,7,10)-$substr(%date%,1,2)-$substr(%date%,4,5)

Pattern: %date%

Expand the source string as needed if your tags are not completely uniform.

Thank you j7n
I just used on a sample set of files and it works great and I understand the script I think.
Now to put it to use on a set of 12,000 audio files, and take a 420 break while foobar works
