Add Book Regex to Custom field

Just wondering if its possible to use a custom field when adding books into Calibre? if so how i have tried putting the # in front of the fieldname but it doesnt seem to work.

I'm guessing that, in the regex expression for adding books, you want to read metadata to a custom metadata field? If so, that's not possible- only the fields listed below the regex input field are supported.
