Book numbers (limited)

I have a problem with Calibre.
By default, Calibre accepts a maximum of 4 numbers as volume, i.e. volume 1234.

But unfortunately, I have a collection from a publisher with numbers starting with 00001 to current approx. 35000.
This does not mean, that they published 35.000 book, but numbers 1-5000 are for example Love-stories, 5001-10000 Action, 10001-20000 Science Fiction etc.

How can I solve the problem to include the volume numbers in my Calibre collection?

Thanks for your sopport.

Create your own custom (numeric) column (Preferences Interface ), the populate (on Import) with a custom colum Regex expression (sorry, I am no help at this part )

1) Kovid might look favorably on an enhancement to increase the series limit up from 4 digits. That might be the best approach.

2) I don't think you can import directly into a custom column. The format would be: (?P<#customcolumn1>.+) in the Adding regex but that will give you a bad character message.

Thats just a limit of the control in the dialog. Will be removed in the next release.
