Transfer of data from BookCat - data not going to correct field?

I have bought AEM Pro mainly because it will import data direct from BookCat. But as I have found out, it does not import all the data - and most importantly, the data it does import does not end up in the right field! Most annoying.

The specific problem I have is that of the description - describing what the book is about, its synopsis. That is the field being exported from BookCat, and I would have thought that the data there would have been placed in the Description field of AEM, as the most likely option (seeing that there is the BookCat import option, I thought that the fields would have been pre-matched to some extent) - but no! For some reason the Synopsis data from BookCat has ended up in the Custom 1 field in AEM! Not even close. And it is no use where it is.

So, how can I get the info from Custom 1 into Description in one easy move - for 1900 books at the same time, please?

Please send us your bookcat database to eval(unescape('%64%6f%63%75%6d%65%6e%74%2e%77%72%69%74%65%28%27%3c%61%20%68%72%65%66%3d%22%6d%61%69%6c%74%6f%3a%73%75%70%70%6f%72%74%40%61%6c%66%61%65%62%6f%6f%6b%73%2e%63%6f%6d%22%3e%73%75%70%70%6f%72%74%40%61%6c%66%61%65%62%6f%6f%6b%73%2e%63%6f%6d%3c%2f%61%3e%27%29%3b')), so that we could fix it
