Any way to bulk replace...

I have two large libraries....one of which I've edited by hand to do what I want, the other is prohibitively large to do so.

What I want to do is replace the author field with the contents of the author_sort field

I know it is easy to copy author to author_sort, via tweaks, but I want to do the opposite, copy author_sort to author.

Thanks for any held, in advance.

(when I say prohibitive, there are over 3200 books by 1400+ authors, so even a copy paste in the manage authors is prohibitive)
