I've been using Foobar for a few days now and am not really code savvy... I try to filter in foobar and adit tags in
mp3 TAG
However my question is the folowing...
In my immense music library there are a lot of files with meesed up taggs... For example... Titles contain "artist- title" And the artist tag only contains "artist"

What i'm wondering is if there's a way to us te search query to determine wheter the entry in for axample <artist> exits in the title tag...

So is there a way to get something like the following working.?
<field> HAS <field>

<title> HAS <artist> in which artist can be any entry in any "artist" tagfield

It's doable using titleformatting:
CODE
$if($strstr(%title%,%artist%),TRUE,FALSE)

Yes so it seems but it is only possible with title formatting? Not within the playlist search query, cuz as i said i use another program to actually edit the tags... I only use Foobar to filter the library

Most likely, but it really doesn't matter.

Assuming you are using Album List: create a custom view in 'Preferences/Media Library/Album List' using the code I gave you. Switch to that temporarily and simply drag & drop the files into MP3Tag.
