[Koha] Copying Subfields from Field1 to Field2 [Was: Identifying Records with Non-Roman Characters]

Hello, all!

    Earlier this week, I wrote about flipping the tags on old 245-246 pairs
to make them in current 245-880 pairs, e.g.,

=245  10$aВеликая отецественная война 1941-1945 /$cВ. И. Чуйков
=246  11$a Velikaia otechestvennaia voina 1941-1945

=245  10$a英汉常用物理学小词典 /$cYing Li, Lian Wei
=246  11$aYing-Han changyong wulixue xiaocidian

would become

=242  14$aThe Great Patriotic War 1941-1945 /$cV. I. Chuikov.
=245  10$6880-45$a Velikaia otechestvennaia voina 1941-1945
=880  10$6245-45/(N$aВеликая отецественная война 1941-1945 /$cВ. И. Чуйков

=242  10$aEnglish-Chinese dictionary of commonly used words in physics
/$cYing Li, Lian Wei
=245  10$6880-45$aYing-Han changyong wulixue xiaocidian
=880  10$6245-45/[dollar]1$a英汉常用物理学小词典 /$cYing Li, Lian Wei .

respectively. With help from David Cook and a few tutorials online, we were
able to accomplish, to our very great surprise.

    We now have another problem: copying the existing 242$c or new 880$c
into the 245$c with the preceding slash. Does anyone have an idea how to do
this? I have tried MarcEdit's swap field functionality, but I just cannot
get it to work. It ends up replacing the 245 subfields altogether, leaving
behind just the indicators and $c prefixed with a slash.

    The resulting 245 fields would end up

=245  10$6880-45$a Velikaia otechestvennaia voina 1941-1945 /$cV. I.
=245  10$6880-45$aYing-Han changyong wulixue xiaocidian /$cYing Li, Lian
Wei .

    Does anyone have an idea?

    Many thanks for your help.
