Swap data between two fields

I received a collection of .mobi format books. Unfortunately, of the close to 100 books, about ninety have the author data in the title filed and vice versa. Is there a way to swap the data to where it belongs?

Drat! Found the answer using Google of all things.

Sheesh! What a maroon.

There is an Icon ON THE LEFT in the edit metadata form (up and down arrows)
That is its purpose

If you select all those bad books, then tap 'E" (bulk mode),
There is a tick box to do the same in bulk. Tick and click OK
