Nesting Function arguments in custom columns
I am trying to create a custom column that requires a lowercase Authors and lowercase Title with all the punctuation stripped out. So far I have this:
I know I can use re to strip out the punctation such as re(,\,) but I'm not sure where I put that to affect "author".
Do I make two additional custom columns. One to make the author lowercase and then another to strip out the punctuation using re.
did not work as an argument.
I did figure out a solution. There are probably more elegant solutions. I created four columns. The first two to get the author and title to lower case and then the next two to strip out punctuation and spaces.
