    Hi All, I want to write a script which takes every song in a playlist in itunes, and adds to the end of the genre field, the name of that playlist. Can this be done with automator or do I need to do something more complicated?

    Playlist Name: House
    Call On Me (Eric Prydz) - Genre: Dance
    Cafe Del Mar (Out Of Office Remix) - Genre: Dance

    becomes:

    Call On Me (Eric Prydz) - Genre: Dance House
    Cafe Del Mar (Out Of Office Remix) - Genre: Dance House

    Not Automator, AppleScript.

    You might find an AppleScript already built for that purpose here.

    This explains how to install the scripts once you download them.
