Need help with expressions

Hi,

Who can help me out?
All my books are stored:
author - series - title OR author - title

I tried (?P<author>[^_]+) - (?P<series>.+) - (?P<title>.+)

It doens't do what I want:

Abkoude, Chris van - Pietje Bell 2 - Pietje Bell's goocheltoeren.epub
is showing:
Title: Pietje Bell' (missing "s goocheltoeren")
Author: Abkoude, Chris van (which is OK)
Series: Pietje Bell 2 (which is OK)

But

Beckman, Thea - Een bos vol spoken.epub

is showing author and title in the field Title.

All help appreciated!

Try this - you need to change the expression to accommodate your actual titles, which use '-' vs. '_' between items and series are optional:
Code:
(?P<author>[^-]+) - ((?P<series>[^-]+) - )?(?P<title>.+)
That should fix your second problem. Not certain why it's dropping the title components after a quote, I suspect that's a bug.
