Library Sorting Questions

Is there any way to tag a song so that when I import it into my library, the "Key" sorting field is filled in properly?

I asked some time ago why, if I tag a song with its key, DeckaDance doesn't read that along with all the other information when I import the song. If I import a song to my library for the first time, the Title, Artist, Genre, Rating, BPM, and Comments all load properly, but I have to manually enter Key information inside DeckaDance for it to recognize it. Why is this, and what can I do to make "Key" tags load with all the other ID3 tags?

I've considered placing Key information under an unused tag that DeckaDance can load, but the only unused tag I could find is Grouping. But I don't know what tag "Grouping" means. Does it mean album artist? Or is it its own tag, simply called, "Grouping"? If so, that's the first I've heard of that tag, but will gladly use it if it means when I delete and reload my library, I don't lose key information for upwards of 800 songs.

Does anybody know how these tags and sorting fields work, and how I can solve this problem? It's a serious issue for me, and would love to have some help in figuring this out.

Thanks,
