QUOTE (Fred99x @ May 25 2012, 23:00)
I have numerous filenames in the format: artist name - song title. This is a filename only and these do not show up in any other fields such as artist. I would like to change the filename to indicate song title - artist name. The artist name and song title could have multiple words so using %1 %2 etc will not work. Is there another way to do this for a large group of filenames?Thanks
Although the problem has been asked in numerous variations and the forum area of "Frequently Asked Questions" may provide the answer instantly, I am willing to help you by an example case.
Given is the filename 'The Beatles +++ White Album.mp3'.
There are two parts obviously connected by the string ' +++ '.
The target filename should be 'White Album - The Beatles.mp3'
To interchange the two parts the converter "Filename - Filename" can be helpful.
Convert | Filename - Filename | ALT+3
Select format string
Old filename pattern:
%1 +++ %2
New filename pattern:
%2 - %1
The Beatles +++ White Album.mp3"
White Album - The Beatles.mp3
You can adapt this example to your needs.
