But what about when you have (apart from the names), series info in the authors field. How can you take it out of there and copy it to its respective field.
Is there a way to do it in one simple command?
Probably, but without examples I can't propose anything.

What you will do is use different source and destination fields. The source will be author, or perhaps {template} if there are multiple authors involved. The destination will be series. You carve out the appropriate text using the source regexp and put it in the destination.

Have you read the regexp tutorial? It tells you everything you need to know to do this sort of text carving.
