Sort books by filename

I saved a number of magazine articles using a "yyyy-mm - magazine name" format and want to sort them by this column. However, when I Add them, the titles are not the filenames, but taken from metadata ( I guess). If I check the metadata box in the Add books section, it loses some of the other tag info.

So, is there a way to create a new column that uses the filename as shown in Windows Explorer?

Not that I know of.
The original name can get changed during the Add phase

BTW I file my Magazines as a Series
eg Analog SF and F [2010.04] year dot month or just issue number for the index

did you know that you can use metadata from Filename (with the proper template) to ADD
and then use Metadata Edit to read internal metadata? (the brown book on the left)

(just don't Polish or do something to cause a change to the book BEFORE you do)

You can NOT use Bulk Mode MDE to set other than cover
