Still not working. The test file is

spe00095428 The Application of Cutoffs in Integrated Reservoir Studies.pdf

If I use (?P<title>.{8}) I get 00095428 in the title field which is what I want.

I then create a Custom Column called Reference with a look up name of #reference

I then change regular expression to (?P<#reference>.{8}) and I get

calibre, version 0.8.56
ERROR: Unhandled exception: <b>error</b>:bad character in group name

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\preferences\main.py", line 324, in commit

What I am I doing wrong?

I appreciate very much your help.
