Published Date from the file name

Im pretty new to Calibre and I curently have a naming canvention of

Author - Published - Title.epub

is there a way to read the Published Date from the file name? something like this...

Under Preferences - Add/Save - Configure metadata from file name

(?P<author>[^_]+) - (?P<PUBDATE>[^_]+) - (?P<title>.+)

Thanks
Cody

Sorry. Calibre will take any of title, author, series, series index, and isbn from the filename, but won't take the date.

Feel free to add an enhancement ticket.

Thanks for the quick reply. Think I will request that and see if anyone else has that need. Thanks again.
