Search & Replace "wildcards"?
I'm trying to edit the author fields in a library, because it has the author name, a hyphen, and a series name. I just want the author's name.
Example: Woods, Stuart - Stone Barrington 00
Is there a "wildcard" character I can use to replace everything after and including the hyphen with nothing?

Warning this will match any title text that is hyphenated
also note: the pattern below is space hyphen space then wild-card
so wild-card is safe and wild - card will go bye-bye
