I have about 500 songs in my music library that I need to synch up, so that  the Artist and Album Artist info are the same. Is there a scrip or tool that I can use.

example:

Artist: Same Cooke
Album Artist: Various Artist.

I want Artist and Album Artist to reflect the same data.

Artist: Same Cooke
Album Artist: Sam Cooke

Besides doing each file by hand is their a quick and easy why to synch them up.

Welcome to the forum vxl65703.
I don't think that's a good idea at all, but you probably have your own reasons for wanting this.

If you install the 'Additional Tagging & Reporting Tools' add-on, you will find a new menu entry 'Copy Tag...' that will do exactly that.

For what it's worth, if you delete the album artist value, MusicBee will treat Album Artist as artist.

I am guessing the OP wants this for the purpose of syncing to some other device.
