    Red face Getting foxed with the tag naming

    I seem to be hitting a limit on my understanding. This is what I want to achieve:

    Normal Album

    Artist - Album Diskno \ Track Title

    So Folder = Elton John - Blue Moves
    Sub folder = 01 - Holiday

    That I can achieve with the relatively simple naming:
    [artist] - [album]\[track]-[title]

    Compilation Albums

    Various Artists\Album diskno \ Track Title Artisit

    So Various Artists folder Folder = The Best Album in the World Disk1
    Sub Folder = 01 - Wannabe - Spice Girls

    This I can achieve with this naming:

    Various Artists\[album]\[track] - [title] - [artist]


    So far so good. Now I want the software to automatically recognise compilations and do the above. This is the string I have:

    [IFCOMP][]Various Artists\[album]\[track]-[title] - [artist][IF!COMP][artist] - [album][]\[track] - [title][track]

    What it fails to do is to recognise the differences. It is dealing with compilations correctly, but it is also treating non compilations in the same way.

    I have checked and the compilation box is not ticked when the error is made. I guess it is something I have done in the string, but it is not obvious to me.

    Help please ????


    Thanks

    >[IFCOMP][]

    This is the fault the [] terminates the IFCOMP check, your string for if compilation should be before []

    first of all a big thank you for a fast and helpful reply. If I can be a pain, is there a bug with [disk]. I now have it working well, but where there is a two disk set asnd it is shown as such in dbpa - if I add [disk] to the tag it just save the word "disk" and not show the disk number. Any ideas?

    I use batch ripper it tags correctly. If I rip one singularly from Cd Ripper it gets the tag wrong. Oh well - not a great issue, really good product :smile2:. Thanks
