generate series from title using search and replace

Hi.
I have a number of comics that I have just imported into calibre.
I have them listed by title as 'name v1 #xxx' and would like to use that as the series using the Search and Replace tab in the edit metadata bulk screen.
For example title = 'Superman v1 #139'
I would like the series to be 'Superman v1 [139]'.
For the search field I selected title and 'superman v1 #[0-9][0-9][0-9]' and then series as the destination.
I tried a couple of variations on 'superman v1 [0-9][0-9][0-9]]' as the replace with mask but nothing seemed to work.

Is thsi possible? I so what do I need to change?

Hi - Don't worry about it.
I figured it out.

What was the resulting solution? It might help someone else in the future.

As Gunner suggested here is my solution.
Rather than try and describe my solution I just took a screen shot.

Awesome. I've been doing the same thing by hand. This will make things much faster. :
