Now I would like to extract the number out of the Author name and place in the number field of the Series.

I've read through the manual (bulk edit) but can't find a way to make it work. Can someone give me hinter or a direction? Or better help me build the string that is needed?
Try something like (in Bulk Edit -> Search & Replace):

Search field: Author

Search for: ".* - " (without the quotes)

That should result in just the number remaining.

Destination field: series_index

Note that the Series field must be filled already, or this will not work; you can't have a series_index of a nonexistent Series.
