it's incredible, but in my MM3 Gold version, everything can be selected in the normal field part (i.e. artist, album, length, etc.) but NOT publisher. I have a lot of information auto-tagged by Amazon about the Label (publisher) and i would love this to automatically appear so that i can look it at quickly, and sort it without any problems.

anyone any suggestions? please help! :lol:

I thought in the next version of MM they were going to open up access to all the fields?

i have a lot of stuff tagged under the field 'Publisher' but it's impossible to select this column in MM3 :cry:

how to do this?

But I don't want the entire file name just the label name. My files names are formated like this.

<artist> - <title> - <label> - <album>.wav

Directly Use Filename in ExtractFields to get what you want.

Yeah I actually just found that. So what I'm doing now is extracting the Label from the file name, into the custom 1 field, and then using Extract Fields to copy custom 1 into the Publisher field. Is there a faster way to do this?

Try with Steegy Extract Fields Script it should give you the control needed.

Nearly all my music is electronic a lot of which I've recorded from vinyl to WAV files. I want to keep track of the record label that each album/track was produced under. What is the best field for this? Currently I tried using a custom field, but I really want something that is actualy stored in the file as a tag, and the custom fields are not stored inside of wav files.

I was thinking publisher, but there is no way that I can see to use the "Auto tag from filename" to fill in the publisher field, and there is no option for a Publisher column in the track list.
