Code Replacement in Date field
« on: July 08, 2010, 08:49:25 AM »
I have created a .txt file containing columns of data from our agency's photographic jobs which can be applied to IPTC fields in related images using Code Replacement.

The first five digits of every image's file name form the job number, so

/{filenamebase:0,5}#1 etc etc

is used populate the various fields.

This works fine for all except the Date field, which will not accept the Code string.

The job date is a crucial part of the data required for our images, as the image's own creation date is not always valid.

There are thousands of images involved, so it would save a great deal of time if the Date field could be used in the Code Replacement process. (And the Country Code as well).

Would it be possible to add this in the near future?
