Question Saving to Disc

I'm trying to save books to disc in txt format so that they can be read on a braille reader. I've managed to work out how to change the file name to include the series name and number, but the book title is stumping me. If it starts with A or The this ends up at the end of the tilte, for example Curse Of The Pharaohs, The.

I've created a composite column called Save to Disc, which gives me exactly what I want e.g. Elizabeth Peters - Amelia Peabody - 002 - The Curse Of The Pharaohs. My save to disc template is set as {#save}, which is the name given to my composite column in templates. In theory, this should pick up everything in my composite column and in fact does, except I end up with the file being named as Elizabeth Peters - Amelia Peabody - 002 - Curse Of The Pharaohs, The.txt.

What am I missing in order to get the title to keep the The or A at the beginning and not add it to the end following a comma? Any help would be much appreciated, expecially if it could be simple as I'm not very good with the syntax on these templates and find them quite hard to understand without a lot of trial and error.

Many thanks

Many thanks, now sorted. Seems I still have a lot to learn about Calibre and it's powerful features.

Cheers
