Using File Properties

Postby Noteworthy » Mon Jun 22, 2020 4:15 pm

(OS Windows10)

I have a number of mp3 files that are currently named in the following format
yymmdd_000 eg. 200131_001
The last four characters represent a counter that is not required and I know how to get rid of it ;) in BRU.

I need to rename the file as follows drawing information from each file's properties:
yyyymmddhhmm hh"h"mm"m"ss"s"
where hhmm is the time the file was created and hh"h"mm"m"ss"s" is the Length (duration) of the audio.
For example, the renamed file would look like this:
202001311545 00h23m16s

I read up the help file and I saw that that I could use tags for properties like "<(Length)>" as a suffix in Add(7).
Similarly, the file property tag "<(Date created)>" contains the date and time the file was created.
The data is available to source but I am unable to obtain the filename in the format desired.
Any help would be gratefully received.

Many thanks in advance

Many thanks for your response.

The Length value format is 00:00:00 representing hh:mm:ss

Thanks once again.
