R. A. Salvatore - [FORGOTTEN REALMS THE LEGEND OF DRIZZT 05]
R. A. Salvatore - [FORGOTTEN REALMS THE LEGEND OF DRIZZT 06]
Etc
Etc

I want to be able to do two things - yes is two separate things but depending upon circumstances
1. Delete all except the authors name - how do I handle the consecutive numbers
2. Keep the Authors name in the Authors column but move the rest to the series column - would be nice to get rid of the brackets

Does anyone know if these can be done

Thanks for any help
Why would you bother if you want a relapse?

any quantity of sequential numbers in regex mode: \d+
